Basic Chords

For an awesome 20 DVD set course on learning guitar, please check out these easy guitar lessons.

Check out my basic chord video guitar lesson which will have you playing chords in less than 10 minutes (8:06 to be exact!). I think they’re a great way to explain how to play guitar better than just text and mp3 samples. Here I show some basic open major guitar chords. This also shows the frets that you are supposed to play (with a number of 1, 2, or 3) and which strings are open (not fretted) with a number of 0.
