Play TEN guitar songs with two EASY chords Beginners first guitar lesson
Hi there, my name's Andy and I'm gonnashow you the easiest two chords to play on guitar and then show you how to play them in achord sequence so that you know how to play along to any of the songs that are on my web site already, and thisis an example of an absolute first lesson with me you can use this tutorial so that you knowwhat guitar lessons are going to be like or to get a head start before your firstlesson with me
so let's look at our first chord which isan 'E major' and lets get you in for a closeup So here we are. I've moved the camera so that not only can you see my cool Union Jack rug (which looks amazing)you can also see the guitar of from your point of view this should be theangle that you're looking at your guitar from. Here's a little bit on the anatomy; I'm gonnanumber the strings 1 through to 6; so that's from thethinnest 1 through to 6; so that's from thethinnest, to the thickest
I'm gonna number your frets 1, 2 and 3. Open strings are considered to be 0 zero fret I am I'm gonna get you to put your firstfinger on the thirdstring inside that first fret So thats string 1,2.3. String 3 and position wise you want to stay onthe tips of your fingers and you wanna be
at your side above the fret so the fret(even though the fret is technically the metal strip that goesdown) Fret 1 is this an area here the wooden part, of your fret board, and you want to put you first finger at this side of this area, the side closest toyou. kinda next to, or against the metal fret So that's where your first finger goes. Middle finger. 2nd fret on the 5th string. And 3rd finger.
directly underneath that middlefinger so that will be on the 4th string alsosecond fret. So, if we do those three again we have;one two. and three And, if you push those down with the tipsof the fingers kinda make a nice arch shape withyour hand kinda like a claw I guess (for want of a better term) Now press those down, and strum
every string with your right hand and that's what your first chord shouldsound like. Both these want to be at your side of the fret here, if it's over this side it might still ring out just about but you'll have to press downsignificantly harder to get this note to ring out if you pressover here you most likely be very surprised by howmuch you don't have to press down
Play 10 Songs With 4 Chords Free Guitar Lessons
Hey I'm Nate Savage and you know, one of thebest things about the guitar is you can learn just a handful of chords and you can literallyplay hundreds of the best songs that were ever written. In the case of this lesson,I'm going to teach your four chords that you can use to play ten songs. First of all let's learn the chords that we'regoing to be using in this lesson. The first one is a G major, second one is a C major,third one is a D major, and the last one is an E minor. Okay, let's start with the G majorchord. Put your third finger on the third fret of the low E string, second finger isgoing to go on the second fret of the A string,
and your pinky finger is going to grab thethird fret of the high E string. And you can strum all six strings. Now one thing you're going to want to rememberwhen you're making these chords is come right down on your fingertips, on the very tipsof your fingers, and try to stay right behind the fret. Keep you fingers as close to behindthe fret as possible. That way you can ensure a good sound without any buzzing. Next chord, a C major. Let's take our thirdfinger and put it on the third fret of the A string, second finger is going to go onthe second fret of the D string, and your
first finger is going to come back here andgrab the first fret of the B string. Make sure to come down on the very tips of yourfingers for this chord. If you don't you will definitely notice it. Check it out. Strumthe top five strings, leave the low E string out. Watch this little change right here.If I just let my fingers get a little lazy that's going to sound terrible, so make sureto come right down on your fingertips. Next chord, D major chord, open D major. Putyour first finger on the second fret of the G string, or the third string, third fingerthird fret of the B string, second finger second fret of the high E string. Now leavethe sixth and fifth strings out, and just
strum the top four strings there. Alright, the last chord for you is just aregular E minor chord. Put your second finger on the second fret of the A string and yourthird finger on the second fret of the D string, and you can strum all six strings with thischord. Now that I've showed you those chords thatwe're going to be using let's just talk about strumming really quick in the context of thislesson. I'm going to keep things really really simple for your strumming hand or your righthand. That way you can focus on learning the songs and getting the chord changes for thesong smooth.
Alright let's get down to business here andlearn a song that uses these chords. We're gonna learn probably one of the most populartunes of all time, song by The Beatles called Let It Be. Maybe you've heard of it. Um, let's go put our G major chord on here,and I'm gonna do this in groups of two strums for your right hand just so you know. So,the verse of this tune, just strum G twice. And then go to a D. Strum that twice. E minortwice. And go to a C twice. Back to a G, a D, a C, and then back to a G one more time.And that's pretty much the entire verse to the song. It just goes through that wholeprogression twice. Let me play that progression
for you uninterrupted so you can hear whatit sounds like. So that's the verse of the tune Let It Be,and let's get to the chorus now. The chorus goes to an E minor twice, a D, C, G, stayon a G and do that two more times, go to a D, a C, and then finally end up on a G. Solet me play the entire chorus for you real quick. So as you can see, you can get through thatentire song using just these four chords. There are some walkdowns and stuff in there,but like I said we're keeping things real simple for your right hand. Um, another songthat uses almost exclusively those four chords
