The 5 Most Important Guitar Chords

In this guitar lesson, we'll be diving into the 5 most important chords you'll learn on the guitar. We'll also talk a bit about why they're superior to the other chords you'll learn. As we go through this lesson, we'll cover the ways to make each chord and also the notes in each chord. So whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, you'll be sure to learn something from this video.

The reason these chords are so important is that every chord you’ll learn down the road is based on one of these 5 shapes. So these shapes will continue to work for you for years to come.

The 5 chords we’ll look at are the C major, A major, G major, E major, and D major. The reason we use all major chords is that the minor versions of any of these chords just require tiny adjustments.

If you take the time to get these chords under your belt you’ll gain a huge advantage over other players. It’ll make learning everything else in the future much easier!
