How to Play A, E, and Em Сhords
First we will start off with the simplest and go to more fingers to a chord.

Em chord

E-minor, if you were wondering what the m at the end was.

E--
B--
G--
D-2
A-2
E--
Put two fingers on the second fret of the fourth and fifth string, and that is the E-minor chord.

A chord

Pretty simple chord, really easy to play.
E--
B-2
G-2
D-2
A--
E--
Very easy to memorize and it will come up a lot. Put three of your fingers on the second, third, and fourth string.

E chord

Just a little more complicated than the others, but not that much.
E--
B--
G-1
D-2
A-2
E--
So with the E chord, you should put one finger on the first fret third string, then two fingers on the fourth and fifth string on the second fret.
