How To Hold Chords A, B & C
A guitar tip by Elmore Music for PJ's Guitar Chords and Lyrics Subscribers



Chris ElmoreThere are 7 main chords you must learn in order to play the guitar. They are A, B, C, D, E, F & G.

In this mini-lesson we'll just cover A, B and C.

Later on we'll cover D, E F & G.

Let's represent each finger with a number. So in the following diagrams of chords, place each number on the appropriate strings as shown below.

Once you place your fingers in the spots as shown, brush down on the strings near the sound hole or the body.

Can you hear every string? Are they ringing clearly or are they are muffled mess? If it sounds jumbled, adjust your fingers so they press down correctly.

Side Note: The "o" represented in the diagram means that the string is to be played OPEN. Whereas the "x" means not to play the string at all. I.e. mute it, or try not to strike it when you are strumming the chord.
