Chords For Beginners
Chords are best learned as you need them, in songs as part of a module and I STRONGLY suggest that beginner guitarists learn chords as part of my Beginner Course, that way you'll learn not just where the fingers go but how to use them, practice them and lots of tips and tricks.
But I'll add the chords here for reference anyways because I figure it's likely that some people will be looking for a specific chord, and I'll add links to the related lessons too!
