Can you name some easy MAJOR chords, so that i will be able to change from one chort to another. Don't give me A to D, coz i tried that, and it was pretty hard.

Your not really going to get any easier than changing between A and D. Maybe try G and D or G and A. Just keep practicing, eventually your hand will just go to the chords withoug thinking about it. Everyone was like you in the begining, took me a bit to get used to moving between chords.

well, to be honest thats on the easy side. It takes a while to get speed on it but you really dont have any option but to practise. i think the easiest one is maybe e to e minor or e minor to a minor

c to g is really easy. if u cant handle a to d u may not be fingering them correctly either. stick with it and youll get there.
#5
Post your fingering for the way you do A and D. I know that in some books they are written down with different fingering.
#7
Try A to E. Thats got to be easy.

I had a bloody awful time with G when I was starting....A-D is second only to A-E in easiness. Just keep practicing, it is stupidly hard in the first couple of weeks when you're not used to the guitar but it does get easier.

One I find which has to be the easiest I think is, F(--3211) to Dm(---231). All you have to do is move your third finger from the D string to the A string keep the barre on the two 1's as it won't intefere with the Dm and will be their for when you switch back. then move to Am(-02210) if your ready which will involve putting your first finger to it's tip and moving your second finger up a string and put the third finger under your second. Then to C(-32011) you just move your third finger to the fifth string. Pretty simple as it gets, still hard. I assume your playing electric, otherwise it can be quite difficult. Supposedly that is the first line to Little Birdy's Come On Little Heartbreaker. A lot of changing I find is a mental thing you have to think what the transition entails and then minimize movement. Another good thing to remember is that you can make mistakes and people might not notice if you keep a good rhythm. If you just want to impress and not look like a noob and don't care what you play, you can try just adding open strumming inbetween as you get your fingers ready. Another thing I read somewhere is that your right hand should be in control don't stop strumming for your left hand as it will sound worse. I'm not that good either.

Changing chords will come easier over time. And sooner or later you'll come across a progression that goes from A to D, so don't hide from it. Embrace it. You'll know you've got it when you start playing and change chords without looking or even thinking about it. It's just not something that's gonna happen overnight.

if you can play a bar chord then you can just move your whole hand up the neck and not change finger positions.
But from your post, im guessing you cant play bar chords yet lol.
I used to be somewhat in a similar situation. I have found that changing chords will just become easier over time, as you learn more songs, learn scales etc.
