How to Play the A Chord on Guitar

In this lesson, I will show you how to play the A chord on guitar.

By now, you should be feeling very positive in your guitar lessons progress. To play the A chord, place your first finger on the 4th string, 2nd fret, then place your second finger on the 3rd string on the 2nd fret, and finally place your third finger on the 2nd string on the 2nd fret. All three fingers on the second fret.

Now, if you have large enough fingers to be able to play the A chord with only your 1st and 2nd fingers on the 2nd fret, that’s OK also. Whatever works for you.

See you in our next lesson, lets go play the A chord on guitar!!!
