Through the years, many people have told me on their first day of guitar lessons, “I just want to play a song” – so that’s just what we’ll focus on! ๐ŸŽธThis series is intended to teach you the basics of guitar by PLAYING ACTUAL SONGS in each video! ๐ŸŽถ Of course, you’ll still learn the foundational stuff along the way, but it’ll be sprinkled in so you can still have fun and play your guitar while learning. ๐Ÿค—

In this episode, we review our G, Cadd9 and Dsus4 chords from the first two lessons, and add a brand new chord – Em7! These are some of the most popular chords used in today’s music and my goal is to show you how many songs you can already play as a complete beginner! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ



Notice that all 4 chords weโ€™ve learned so far have something in common… ๐Ÿ‘€ You do NOT have to move your ring finger or pinky finger when transitioning between them! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ That means you can focus on moving JUST your index and middle fingers whenever youโ€™re transitioning! ๐Ÿ˜

Keep this in mind while youโ€™re practicing those transitions at 5:30 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ (Sorry, I forgot to include this in the video! ๐Ÿ˜…)


Throughout this series, we’ll dive deeper into topics like tuning your guitar, practicing chord transitions, and figuring out strumming patterns, but for this lesson, I want you to focus on learning how to read chord charts because they are EVERYWHERE in the guitar player’s world! ๐ŸŒŽ As you start learning more about playing your guitar, you’ll see there are a few key skills you need to know. ๐Ÿ”‘ Reading chord charts is definitely one of them, so I hope to break that down for you today! ๐Ÿ’•

As always, thanks so much for watching, and good luck!! โœŒ
