4 Chords Every Guitarist Should Know

Today's new video is all about learning open chords. In the video I teach you how to play an open E, D, G, and A. These basic "cowboy chords" are the fundamental building blocks of guitar playing.

In the video I show you how I would finger each chord, some "hacks" to each one, and what you can do to make sure each note rings out clearly. After that, I talk about what types of chords you can learn next.

There are so many songs you can play with just these four chords. If you're a beginner, this is where you should start. If you've been playing for a while but your chords are sounding muffled, check this video out for some great tips to improve clarity.

Happy strumming!
