How to Get Good at Playing Guitar Chords

Have you been having troubles playing or switching guitar chords? This article will reveal the secret to playing and switching guitar chords.


Remember there are only 2 shapes on the guitar. All chords are made by combining these 2 shapes.
When playing a new chord, place your middle and ring fingers down first, and the rest will follow easily.

Now, pick two different chords.

  • For this example we’ll use Am and E. Position your fingers on the Am chord, then strum 8 times (count 1&2&3&4&5&6&7&8&).


Switch to the E chord, but don’t stop strumming.


Once you switch chords, count until you get the E chord, then start from 1 again.

As you practice this, the number between chords(the amount of strums it takes to get the switch right) will decrease.


  • It might be hard to keep strumming if you have already got into the habit of stopping between chords. never stop strumming.
  • It could take a dozen or more tries to get a switch right, but don’t give up!
  • Here are some easy chord changes:
    • C to G7
    • E to A-minor
    • E-minor to A
    • C to F
  • Try and practice all of these chord changes as described above about 5 minutes each, taking a 5 minute break in between.
  • It is expected for it to take a few tries, and for a while it’s not going to sound very good.



Chord Buddy Review, Does it Really Teach You How To Play Guitar?


Chord Buddy Review (as seen on Shark Tank)

Chord Buddy is claimed to be the World’s best guitar learning system, so I jumped at the chance to review it.



My oldest son has asked quite a few times to take guitar lessons and my wife has always wanted him to take them.  However neither of them has come up with a solution to how to afford such lessons. When I checked into them it was going to be about $100 a month, which was 4 lessons. Compared to soccer at $80 for a season that is a big hit. Especially with two other children that would of course like to participate in their own recreations.
When I was asked if I wanted to review Chord Buddy, the World’s Best Guitar Learning System, I thought to myself this may be the solution to my problem. A more affordable way to help my son learn the guitar with at home guitar lessons. As a parent we want to give our children everything. I think it would be AWESOME and a great experience for my son if he could learn. I have  always wanted to play the guitar myself so I thought this would be  perfect way to bond.
The product came with two books, a DVD, and a guitar hero like gadget to place over the end of the guitar. One book is a collection of 100 sounds – country, pop, gospel, and bluegrass. The second book is an instruction guide, however I much preferred the instructional DVD.  Here is a close up of the “guitar hero” type gadget that is the basis of the system.
My son and I sat down to give it a shot. Despite the fact that the guitar needs tuning, by the end of the video my son knew what he needed to do. The video did a good job of showing him how to utilize the tool and learn to play. As for the tuning there is a section as well with that. Don’t ask me what you need to do because I myself did not watch the video. My biggest problem now is not how to AFFORD the lessons but how to get my son to sit and practice. After all the wanting and needing of the lessons we can not get him to set down and practice. He tends to pull out the guitar when a friend come over so he can show off how he knows “how” to play. Though he hasn’t played a song yet. You can buy a kid a Chord Buddy but you can’t make him want to practice. Typical teenager of course.

The system:

The great thing about the Chord Buddy is that you can make music from day one.  This book will provide an organized, step-by-step practice guide to get you playing on your own in just two months, with only one hour of practice per day.

Section One: You get started strumming and singing six great songs right away, and along the way you will be introduced to different strumming techniques.

Section Two: You will learn some special tricks with the Chord Buddy to make you sound like a pro.

Section Three: Using a systematic process that removes one chord tab at a time, you will learn to form the chords on your own, without the assistance of the Chord Buddy.

So I asked my wife what she thought about the Chord Buddy. She said with practice she thinks my son could learn to play, the video showed him what he needed to know to learn how to play, it is just a matter of getting my son to practice. I definitely think anyone in the same situation as me, not wanting to pay for lessons but wishing they could give their child the opportunity of learning to play the guitar should first invest in the Chord Buddy and give it a try. It is so much cheaper then lessons and very easy to learn.

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – D and A7 Chords – Lesson #1

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – D and A7 Chords – Lesson #1

This is the first video in my Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Guitar Course. In this course I will take a beginner from the very first chords on the guitar to playing simple songs. This course is aimed at the absolute beginner, but if you’ve been playing for a little while you’ll find some tip here that will help you progress more rapidly.

I deliberately kept these videos short “bite-sized” to make them easy to watch and fun to work on. I’ve included the basics of strumming, changing chords quickly and smoothly, correct fingering, common chord progressions and some basic guitar theory. If you watch AND practice all the lessons you will have a good foundation on the guitar.

Learning guitar is not hard if you have a structured guitar course to follow  like this one and are willing to put in the practice time. Watch, take action and learn to play your favorite songs on guitar.

Guitar Chords for Beginners Lesson # 1 – D and A7

In this first video from my Kickstarter Guitar Course,  I’m going to show you the two basic foundation chords. We’re going to start with D and A7. Take a look at the example in the video on how to finger the D chord. With the left hand and my first finger on the third string behind the second fret. Second finger behind the second fret on the first string and third finger in between. Look to see that your fingers are angled up and down, not flattened down and you should have some space in there.

Try to keep your hand relaxed

If you’re going to practice just take your fingers off and put them back on. You want to hear nice clear notes, keeping as close to the frets but not on top. I like to put the tip of my thumb at about the middle of the back of the neck. Apply just enough pressure so your hand could fall off if you relaxed a little more.

Moving On to The A7 Chord

Let’s go learn how to play the  A7. Move the first two fingers over one string. Then you take the third finger off. That’s the first finger, second fret and fourth string. Second finger, second string, second fret. So that’s the third string open in between. Now move those two fingers over and play the D, back to A7 and back to D.

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – Lesson #2 – G Major Chord

Third Most Important Chord For Beginners The G Major Chord

Three Forms Of The G Chord

In today’s video I’m going to teach you the G chord. The G chord in my opinion is the third most important chord for beginning guitarist. Now there’s four forms of the G chord that I commonly use. I’m going to show you three of them today and giving you a choice of which one to start with. First, the simplest. It’s just my third finger on the first string, third fret and you’re going to play the top four strings, the high four strings. It’s a very simple G and it sounds good.

G Major Form #2

Now if you want to play all the strings and you want to work towards something better, stretch that second finger over on the third fret, sixth string. Now you get a bass note. I’m actually slightly using the fifth string. I’m just slightly touching it with my second finger. Here. See? That’s the fifth string, it doesn’t sound. Sixth string, fifth string.

G Major Form #3

Now the third form I want to show you, which is one of the most common forms is the three finger form… Keep those two fingers down and put the first finger down in the second fret, fifth string. Doesn’t sound that much different and fuller… Okay, another one I use the most often, the fourth form is actually switch everything around and use the pinky but the pinky is a tough one for a beginner and if you’re just starting out on the guitar, you’re probably a beginner. So, the G chord. Go and take your fingers off and put the fingers on.

Start With Any Form

You can start with any form that you like . Again, remember to angle your fingers up and down so the clear all the strings. Keep your thumb in the back of the neck. All said and done, try to stay as relaxed as you can.

Coming Up Next…

In the next video I’m going to teach you the most important part, changing chords on a G to the D and the A7.

The Key Is Learning To Move From One Chord To Another

This is video number 3. Now in the last few lessons we learned three chords, the D, the A7 and the G chord. We’re going to put them all together. The main skill to learn is how to change from chord to chord. Let’s start with a D chord. Go and place your fingers the D chord from straight down, move over to A7 first two strings over, back over to the D chord you move the first two fingers in the center of the fretboard.

Moving To The G Chord

Now the G chord. You can make any version of the G we talked about in lesson two. I’m using a three-finger G, back to D. Do the G again, back to D, A7 and back to D. Now we’re going to do an exercise I like to do with these three chords.

Chord Movement Exercise


It’s going to go G and do two strums down, D two strums down, A7 two strums down and D two strums down. Let’s do it, start with a D. Ready, go. To G, strum with me, back to D go to A7, back to D, G, back to D, A7. Let’s do it one more time. Ready, go. D, G, D, A7 back to D, G, D and A7 and then down to D. Okay, you want to practice that enough so that you can do it without pausing between chord changes.

What You Need To Avoid…

No pausing between chord changes. Go as slow as you need to to get that change in time, right on the beat. I like to use the metronome sometimes to keep a beat. One, two, change, right down the beat. Okay, practice that up and you’ll be ready for the next video lesson. I want to Thank You for joining me. If you’d like some more guitar tips you can find them at I have a large number of lessons and extra tips and I’m adding things every day. Look forward to seeing you there. Take care.

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – Lesson #5 – Changing Between E and A Chords on Guitar

Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – Lesson #5 – Changing Between E and A Chords on Guitar

Changing Between A and E chords

This is the next lesson in my Kickstarter guitar course.  In the last lesson we played the E chord and the A chord. Now we’re going to practice changing chords. Play that E chord, play the A chord, back to the E chord and play the A chord. Now let’s do two strums each, A then to the E, back to A and E, A, E, A and E.

Let’s Add A Very Simple Strum Pattern

Instead of just strumming straight down, we’re going to go down, down, up. On the E chord, down, down, up. Do it now. This is on the A chord, ready, go. Back to the E chord and the A chord. Now we go back and forth. I’ll do one, two full strums, that’s actually four beats. One, two, three, four. That’s four beats. The down, up makes one beat. Then we’re going to switch to the next chord, they’re on the E, ready, go. The A, back to E, and A, E, and A, the E, and then on the A, watch for that.
