Learning chords may seem intimidating at first, there are just so many of them, how are you supposed to memorise them all? It’s actually easier than you think.

Take a look at these main three D chords.

D major is the the first chord, used an open first (A) string. This is the lowest version of this chord.

Dm

Dm

Second is a similar chord, the D Minor chord, it too also uses an open first string and lastly,

D7

D7

the D 7 chord. Now when you move these up two frets you get the E chords.

E Major

E Minor

E Minor

E 7

E 7

The root of this series of chord shapes can be found on the 3rd string (C String) remember this as it will help you identify what chord you are playing upĀ  and down the fretboard.

Once you’ve memorized these chord shapes, have a crack at the movable G chords. or the B movable chords
