Guitar – Lesson 4 – Chords

If you are following our tutorials from the beginning, you must have known the importance of  playing chords accurately. So in this tutorial, we are going to look deeper into reading chords diagram and playing them properly in your guitar.

A F

Here, we start with simple A major chord and later focus to barre (or bar) chords, mainly F chord which is considered as a hurdle for beginners. Follow this tutorial and practice the chords regularly. With some time and practice, you’ll master these chords and you won’t be barred anymore.

You can get the chord diagrams here: http://melosic.com/guitar-chords/

Guitar – Lesson 2.5 – Tuning the Guitar

Tuning the strings of your guitar to the correct notes is very important. Not only for good sound, you should always practice on a well-tuned guitar so that your ears (read: brains) are always trained to hear the right sound.

In this video lesson, our guitarist Sabin shows you how to tune a guitar into the standard tuning in two ways:

1. using a tuner (absolute tuning)

2. without using a tuner (relative tuning)

 

Here is relative tuning chart for reference (click for larger image):
