A Few Basic Guitar Chords
In my second lesson, I'll teach you some basic guitar chords. If you can't read tab you should check out my tablature lesson. Ok we will start with the A chord:
E  ----
B 2----
G 2----
D 2----
A  ----
E  ----
Now the D chord:

B 3---
G 2---
D  ---
A  ---
E  ---
Now e minor:
E  ---
B 1---
G 2---
D 2---
A  ---
E  ---
Next is my favorite, the G Major:
E 3---
B 3---
G  ---
D  ---
A 2---
E 3---
Now the E Major chord:
E  ---
B  ---
G 1---
D 2---
A 2---
E  ---
And last but not least, C Major:
E  ---

I learned and remembered these chords by playing C Major, A minor, E minor and G major together so it might help you to. I'm 99% sure this is accurate, but if I missed something tell me. Good luck!
