View the all the basic guitar lessons here

This is the 3rd lesson in my basics of guitar series. In the first lesson, we learned how to hold the guitar, how to read chord diagrams, and how to play our first chord, the D chord. The second lesson covered the main chords used in the key of G: G, C, D, and Em, and the third lesson covered chords in the key of A.

In this lesson, you’ll learn the four most used chords in the key of D: the D major chord, the A major chord, the G major chord, and the B minor chord.
