This video will show you how to play the basic 3 note chords by indicating the place of the left hand fingers on the finger board of your guitar. The simple chords or "open" chords are composed of 3 notes: the root that gives the name of the chord, the third that gives the mode of the chord and the fifth. We will learn the four simple basic chords: G major, E minor, A minor and D major. The crosses marked on the diagram means that the corresponding strings are not played. For the A minor chord, we start on the A string, and for the D major chord, we start on the D string. Let's start with the G major chord which requires four fingers of the left hand. The index on the A string, fret 2. the middle finger on the low E string, fret 3. The ring finger on the B string, fret 3. and the little finger on the high E string, fret 3. Let's continue with the E minor chord which requires only two fingers. The major finger on the A string, fret 2 and the ring finger on the D string, fret 2. You can also use the index and middle fingers for this chord. For the A min chord, the previous 2 fingers (middle and ring fingers) will move on the G and D strings. The index will arise on the B string, fret 1. We finish with the D major chord with the index on the G string, fret 2. The major on the E string acute, fret 2. The ring finger is placed on the B string, fret 3. This chord will start from the D string. We will now follow up these four chords in order to give a very well known chord progression called "Anatole". This progresion has been used in many successful songs.
