Guitar Lesson: The best chords to learn first, when you start learning the guitar.

So what chords do you learn to start playing the guitar immediately? Everybody has their opinions, and they’re all great, but I think in general there are 5 that stand out in my mind, as crucial to learn in the beginning. This is the one of the first guitar lessons I teach to any beginner.

So what are they? Keep reading and all will be revealed.

Let’s go ahead and state that I’ m talking about pop music here. Things may change for different musical styles, but I don’t think too much. Basically for blues, classic rock, and pop, these are the ones I recommend.

  • D
  • Cadd9
  • G
  • Am
  • Em

You can play all these songs with these 5 chords.

  1. Brown Eyed Girl
  2. Sweet Home Alabama
  3. Good Riddance
  4. Times like These
  5. Can’t You See
  6. Wish you were Here

Learn these chords, and watch the magic happen. Learning how to play the guitar is not really that hard. It’s basically a matter of practicing the correct techniques that will help you to progress in your guitar playing.
