7 Basic Guitar Chords For Beginners


 

Basic G Guitar Chord (G Major Chord)

Next up is a basic G chord.  For the G major guitar chord there are two fingerings listed. The one in black is the fingering I recommend.

The one in black may seem more awkward at first only because you are using your 4th finger, which is your weakest finger. But that fingering makes the smoothest transition with C, which happens all the time in different songs.

Basic D Guitar Chord (D Major Chord)

Next is a basic D chord. With the addition of a D major guitar chord, you can play the chords to literally thousands of songs. Write yourself some catchy lyrics and you too could make millions of dollars. The biggest problem encountered with this basic guitar chord is getting the first string to sound. Make sure  your third finger is not touching the first string. Get right on the tip of your 3rd finger.
