Chords are typically composed of three notes that work together. At first they may seem challenging to learn but you’ll quickly discover that once mastered they become much simpler – particularly if you understand their basic theory behind. Some chords may be easier than others to play once learned – some even come preloaded with instructions!
Most beginners begin their musical careers by mastering major chords (root – 3 – 5). These sound great and will allow them to play many songs.
Major chords follow an easy to remember naming convention, whereby they’re named after their root note – for instance, D major chords will simply be called “D”.
Other types of guitar chords include minor (root-b3-5) and diminished chords with more dissonant qualities; both types may add some variety and depth to your playing, though for deeper exploration it would be beneficial to learn about scales and how they create chords.
Bar chords can be an excellent place to begin as they’re highly mobile across the fretboard. Many guitarists transition from open chords to bar chords once their fingers have developed enough strength, as these chords can be played anywhere along the neck while still sounding great.
A chord chart can help you visualize which strings should be played and which should not. Chord charts usually feature X’s and O’s above the nut (the thick black line located directly beneath your left-hand index finger), not as kisses or hugs but as shorthand for which strings you should play or leave open; for instance if there’s an X above the 3rd fret of an A string this indicates you should avoid pressing down; while an O means to play open.
