Basic Guitar Chords - Major Chords

Learn to play these basic major chords and you'll be playing songs in no time. To play these major chords put your fingers where the black dot are. Then strum all the strings that are part of the chord. Major chords have a happy or a fun sound to them. Compare these major chords to the Minor chords in the next free lesson.

Remember that "O" is an open string meaning that you don't fret that string but still play it and "X" means that you don't play that string. The symbol that looks like an arch in the B Major and F Major chord means to barre the strings with one finger. In other words lay one finger across the strings and pressing down, playing multiple notes.
