Best Beginner Guitar Lessons Kickstarter Course – Lesson #7 – Chord Families D-G-A7
Review: D, G and A7
In this video I’m going to start Guitar Chords for Beginners Lesson #7. I’m going to start with chord families. The first thing I want to go through is that first three chords we learned, the D, go ahead and play along, play the D chord with me. Hopefully you start getting cleaner, A7 and the G chord. If you started with a simpler version like the first finger, you might want to start right now and learn the next step up. If you’re doing the first finger, the next step would be the stretching the second finger over and if you’re doing that you might want to try the three-finger G.
Chord Families – I – IV – V
Here’s the chord family, three chords, D, G, and A7 and D. D is the one chord, G is the four chord, A7 is the five chord and D is the one chord. Now we’ll go more into that in a later video but you can just count to figure out which chord is which. D if it’s a one chord, D, E, F, G is four, then after G comes A. By the way, the musical alphabet only goes A to G and it starts over. There’s no ABCFG… H. No H chord. D, four chord is G, five chord is A7 and D number one. Let’s play together, we do that strum down, down, up, down, down, up. Are you ready, go. Okay to G, A7 and D then D, G, A7 and D. Let’s mix it up, go to G. G, D, A7 and then D.
Common Patterns Sound Familiar
You could tell it sounds like some familiar song because there are millions of songs made with those three chords.
