More Beginner Guitar Chords

Learning to strum chords is one of the easiest ways to start playing guitar. It's also satisfying because you can learn to strum along to quite a lot of songs once you get the hang of three or more chords.

Be warned, though, it might take you a while to learn those first chords. Depending upon the amount of practice time you have it could take anywhere from a week or so to a couple of months to get a reasonable sound out of your first two or three chords.

The best approach is to learn one chord at a time and practice a little each day. Your fingers will learn faster if you give them a daily workout rather than saving up for long sessions at the weekend.

Start learning with the major chords listed below. Once you've learned the A, D and E chords you can start to play songs with them.

D major
G major
C major
A major
E major
