First Guitar Chords For a Total Beginner - Acoustic Guitar Lesson
We have selected two relatively straightforward chords to get started.
They still sound fantastic, though, and will remain valuable no matter how advanced you end up becoming!
Be sure to memorise the names of the chords as you learn them, as this will help with your understanding of musical theory.
When "fretting" (using your fingers to press the strings down on a fret) chords you need to bear the following things in mind:
1. Keep your thumb on the back of the neck
2. Make a bridge with your fingers
3. Be sure to apply pressure with the tips of your fingertips
4. Push down nice and hard!
Fretting strings for longer periods of time can be uncomfortable or even painful at first!
Don't worry, as you play more and more you'll find you soon adjust and will be able to play for as long as you like in perfect comfort.
Here is the great video...enjoy and don't worry and take your time!
