A Guide for Beginner - More Major Chords - Page 4
by Christopher Sung
The good news is that all of the chords that you'll learn from here on out use the same fingering as either the F chord in page 2, or the Bb chord in page 3. For the Eb major chord, the fingering is the same as the Bb chord - we just move it up 5 frets. The fingering for an Eb major chord is shown below:
So how do you go about fingering this? Take your first finger and lay it across the 1st 5 strings on the 6th fret. Now take your 3rd finger and lay it across the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strings on the 8th fret. Try strumming it. It's OK if some notes don't ring. That's natural. In time, all the notes will ring loud and true. The important thing is that you've learned your Eb major chord. Good job!
Try playing the music example below, set your loop count to "Forever" in your preferences at the bottom of the page, hit the play button, wait for the music to start, and try to play along with the example. It'll help you become more comfortable with the chord.
