Reading guitar chord charts 

The numbers in the circles show what finger you should use to fret the string:

1 = 1st (index) finger
2 = 2nd (middle) finger
3 = 3rd (ring) finger
4 = 4th little (pinky) finger

x = don't play the string
o = open string

Avoid a common beginner (and self-taught) guitar player mistake - stick to the same chord fingerings. You will build muscle memory quicker.

Chord practice tips

Here are some of the best beginner guitar player tips for practicing chord changes which will help you get them faster and cleaner:

1. Memorise the chord name with the shape. This makes learning songs quicker.

2. Good technique should always be your primary goal.

3. Practice till the chords are 100% mute and buzz free.

4. Press your finger down with the correct pressure.

5. Curve your fingers to avoid muting other strings.

6. Press the string with the tips of your fingers keeping clear of the metal fret. Do not go 'as close to the fret as possible' as some advise, this only increases the chance of you muting the note.

7. Lightly grip your thumb around the neck by fret 2 (keeping it low down isn't useful as it reduces your grip & control when changing between open chords.)

8. Practice changing between pairs of chords and other chord combinations with a metronome.

9. Record yourself practicing to quickly fix errors & measure your improvement.

10. Perfect chord changes take time. Be patient and persistent.
