Major chords are the foundation for all the chords you’ll learn, therefore it’s imperative that you’re familiar with these basic chord shapes.

Most of the lessons in this course will cover 2 types of chords: chords played on the lower strings and chords played on the higher strings.

Depending on the musical situation you’ll need chords that have a lighter texture or more mid-range and beef to fill out an arrangement.

Below you’ll find chord shapes that I use often and are wise choices for major chords.
