The augmented chord is a triad built with two major thirds. It is usually notated either as aug or + chord. The aug chord is symmetric. You can divide the scale into three major thirds, meaning that for instance Caug and Eaug will have the same notes. Because of this, there are basically only four different augmented chords.
Here are 6 voicings of the Eaug guitar chord, with a chord chart to each voicings' fingering.
When learning new chords, make sure you know at least their major, minor, 7, minor 7, and sus variations.
Keep your hand loose, rather than stiff and hard. A loose hand is essential for playing chords and switching between them.
