Guitar Chords C Major D Major E Major G Major

Free Online Chords Guitar Lessons

In music, a guitar chord is a collection of tones usually sounded together at once, played on a guitar, It can be composed of notes played on adjacent or separate strings or all the strings together. Chord voicings designed for the guitar can be optimized for many different purposes and playing styles.

Guitar chords take advantage of the intervals between the strings, which in each case are perfect fourths excepting the interval between the B (second) and G (third) strings, which is a major third. One common non-standard tuning, found in hard rock and heavy metal music, is called drop-D tuning. This requires the player to change the low E string tuning to that of a D note. This tuning allows power chords (see below) to be played relatively easily on the bottom three strings, as the strings are now tuned to a root-fifth-octave (D-A-D) tuning. Many other forms of guitar tunings exist as well.

Whatever your level of playing ability,these simpler guitar chords can be put together to make music, some of the most memorable and listened to music in the world uses these shapes.

Below are open position chords , memorise the shape and apply them to songs / tabs in order to learn to play them. With patience and practice the shapes will become second nature to such an extent that your fingers will find the shape without thinking. Pay close attention to the photos they show the correct fingers to use for each guitar chord and the correct finger positions.

When you first learn the Guitar Chord shape make sure you go through each string to see that each note rings out clearly and there are no dead notes. If there are its likely that you need to adjust your fingers slightly in order to play the guitar chord cleanly.

In music barre chord (also known as bar chord or rarely barr chord) is a type of guitar chord, where one or more fingers are used to press down multiple strings across the guitar fingerboard (like a bar pressing down the strings, thus the name), enabling the guitarist to play a guitar chord not restricted by the tones of the guitar's open strings. Barre chords are often referred to as "moveable"  Guitar chords as the whole hand may easily be moved up and down the neck, "in one movement". Commonly used in most popular and classical music, they are frequently used in combination with "open" or standard guitar chords.

Barre chords are typically used for more complex chord voicings and playing in keys not suitable for the more basic open chords of the first position of a standard-tuned guitar.

hen fretting a barre chord, because the strings are no longer open, they do not resonate as brightly or long as an open chord. The sound is muted by the pressure placed on the bar; heavy pressure in the center of the frets produces less muting. Therefore, when playing barre chords, it is important to practice maintaining adequate pressure, as the technique is tiring for beginners and the strings dig into the flesh of the uncalloused finger.
