The Best Chords To Learn First – All The Chords You Need To Know
In the last chapter, we learned about reading chord charts and we covered an E minor, Cadd9 and A major.
In this chapter we’re going to continue this process of learning more, must-know chords. You can probably guess there are a lot of chords that you can play on the guitar. Knowing the chords that I’m about to show you will be the best start to playing many classic songs.
I want to show you the C major D major, E major, G major, A minor, and E Minor.
We’re skipping over the really tough chords that honestly, a beginner guitar player doesn’t need to worry about.
If you follow the chapters all the way through until the end, I will show you how to play every single major and minor chord, up to 3 different ways! But until then, let’s focus on these important, basic chords.
Starting with a D chord, we will talk about some techniques that you should in mind for ALL your chords:
Take a look at these 2 pictures. One, you’ll see my fingers laying down on top of the strings. This will remove the necessary pressure to get the chords sounding good. It will also mute a string or two… not what we want!
Get those fingers standing up straight. Allow all 3 fingers to fret properly and let the strings/notes ring out clearly like this:
This is a great rule for what you want to do with ALL your chords.
Here are the chord diagrams of all the chords I would suggest you get memorized:
