The No. 1 Mistake...

"What is it?", you ask...
Simple. Most people, when they start learning guiatr chords, don't have a plan.

Doing things this way can lead to hours of wasted effort...
It might be smarter to learn guitar chords in the order I show you below.
This Is What Worked For Me...
This is the way I learned guitar chords - it's not traditional - but I went from never having touched a guitar before to strumming along with The Beatles in less than a fortnight...
Doing it this way was great because:
- It built up the strength in my fingers naturally minimizing the sore fingertips
- It helped me learn combinations of guitar chords that I could use to play songs fast
The A Chord
The first chord I recommend that you learn is the A major chord.
This might seem like a tricky chord to get started on but trust me it's worth it. It's a great chord for building up your finger strength and it really lets you get used to fitting your fingers between the frets. It is also one of the most important chords you can learn and is commonly used in 1000's of songs
The D Chord
The E Chord
The D major Chord and The E major Chord
You only need to learn to more chords and you can already play 1000's of songs.
The 2 chords you need to know are the D major chord and the E major ChordAlthough they are not difficult they can take some getting used to - so you will need to practice...
Once you have mastered these two chords and all the changes between A, d and E you know the 3 major chords in the key of A.Imagine you can now play thousands of songs by Clapton,Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and much more...
