These lessons were designed to get you learning as many guitar chords as possible. As you know, chords are one of the fundamental building blocks of playing guitar, so the more chords you have mastered, the better. Once you're at Level II-III, make sure you start learning chord theory as well, and remember that you have our free guitar chord library at your disposal as well.
Learning chords, and being able to switch between them is fundamental to playing the guitar, and we focus on it heavily all throughout our guitar lessons for beginners. You will need to learn guitar chords to be able play songs, so make sure you devote enough of your daily practice time to practicing chords and chord changes. The popular guitar songs you see above all require chords, so once you have your beginner chords down and are able to switch in between them relatively fluently, have a go at the above video tutorials and advance your knowledge and skills. The lessons will let you revise your knowledge of basic chords (such as D major, C major, G major, A minor, etc.), and well as expand your chord library, and learn new guitar chord progressions as well. The lessons will also introduce basic theoretical elements as well, making sure you know why you are playing the given chords as well. If you want to really increase your theoretical knowledge, check out our section on guitar chord theory.
Each guitar chords lesson video contains chord diagrams when you need to play them, so you won’t need to look anywhere else, but the screen. All of the strumming patterns and chord progressions are marked and animated as well, so you should have no problems learning chords with our lessons.
Remember that the ability to play chords and changing fluently between them is a basic requirement of playing the guitar. It will be a bit harder at first, but our beginner chord lessons will help you advance quickly. Be patient, practice everyday, and you’ll see that playing chords will get easier and easier with each day of practice.
