I feel really dumb asking this, but what is a chord and how do you play them?

A chord is playing more than 3 notes at once. Why don't you look for a chord lesson on ultimate guitar. There are some good lessons there on chords, there is even a whole section devoted to chords. Or you could try google searching for guitar chords. you might want to try learning some open position chords first.

Nah listen, the first 'chord' you want to learn is the power chord. Your thing says Punk Rocker, so trust me, you're gonna want to know power chords. A power chord is not technically a chord because it's only 2 notes, and a chord is 3. But power chords form the basis of almost all punk music, and they're used in almost all music.

Basically a power chord is just holding a fret on one string, then holding two frets down on the string below it. So if you held the 5th fret on the top string, push the 7th fret on the string below it and you have a power chord. You can move that all over the fret board. A lot of the time people will also hold the 7th fret on the string below that. In that case you would be holding the 5th fret on the top string, and the 7th frets on both of the next two strings. This is still a power chord because the note on the third string down is the same note as the one on the top string. Again, you can move this all over the fret board and it will sound good.

Only buy guitars that have had their wood harvested from the north side of the tree, during the summer solstice, by virgin druids suffering from dwarfism. Next stupid question, please.

Don't be embarrassed about asking questions on this site. Shoulda posted this in the guitar and bass basics forum though. But still anyone who insults people due to lack of knowledge is usually out of insecurity.

however that being said avoid the pit with questions of this nature
you'll be so flamed

chords are tricky at first but once you can get them you can play the basis of most songs.. and you can make your own songs. When i began learning chords i had such trouble with "c" im sure you'll enjoy it too!

Yes, sadly the pit is an all out rage where morale doesn't apply and opinions and dreams are shattered. Luckily here the worst that can happen is being told you're in the wrong forum or the common idiot will come in saying n00b l4wlz.
