For Beginners: How to Clean Up Your Chords

This is for guys who already know how to play chords, they play them cleanly, but when you switch your chords you get buzzing or mutes or it's for someone who can play their chords, but can't do it on time. Apparently, the trick is in taking 2 chords only. That will let your brain focus on one particular task. You will also learn a small "inventory" trick that will help you a lot.

    Just picked up a guitar for the first time ever 2 weeks ago and from all the vids i have watched on YT so far this one makes the most sense. Thanks!

    I just started playing the guitar, following the first tips on the 45 minutes DVD that was included. I'm still practicing the E, A and D chords. I wasn't sure if your post was ment for me, since I really just play for a few days now. But I totally recognized myself in it. I still can't smoothly go from E or A to D and back (E and A are relatively easy). But... I've tried to play all three of them in a row, like: E - A - D - A - E. Now I'm for sure going to break that down to A - D - A - D. And when I can do that without having to stop and check on my fingers every few try's, I'll head on to E - D - E - D (just to make it a bit harder) Let's see where that'll get me! Thanks!
