Taking the Next Step
That's pretty much it for this lesson. Hopefully these chords are starting to feel a bit more
comfortable under your fingers. For the next step in your studies, there's a few different things
you can do:
- Get a songbook from one of your favorite artists that uses chords shown in this lesson and
learn some of their tunes.
- Take the "A Guide For Beginners - Minor Chords" lesson for an introduction to fingering the most
common minor chords.
- Take the "A Guide For Beginners - Strumming" lesson to help get your strumming hand in order and
to learn how to make the chords you play sound like a song.
- Take the "Adding Hammer-Ons to Your Strumming" acoustic/folk lesson to help add interest to your major chord strumming.
- Take the "Adding Suspensions to Your Strumming" acoustic/folk lesson for other ways to add interest to your major chord strumming.
The most important thing is to have fun, and don't get too frustrated. Even Hendrix started off
by learning his major and minor chords. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them
