Why these 12 beginner guitar chords?
These major chords, minor and seventh are to learn first when starting on the guitar for several reasons:
- They are all located in the bottom of the neck and are “open” chords, that is, they are quite easy to achieve and remember! They are adapted to the level of a guitarist who starts. Here, no bar chords or complex finger positions.
- These chords will allow you to play many songs even if you are a beginner! Indeed, they are very frequently used, so you will have access to a wide repertoire in different styles (pop, rock, reggae, blues, folk …) very quickly. It’s still fun to learn an instrument!
As you can see, these beginner guitar chords are a stage in which all guitarists get started. To simplify your work, we offer you a downloadable PDF file that you can take everywhere with you!
