Your first guitar lesson. A minor and E minor.


I’m going to assume you know next to nothing about guitar!

The names of the strings from thickest to thinnest are E-A-D-G-B-E.

When I say that a chord is played "zero-two-two-zero-zero-zero", it corresponds to these strings in that order. I’m naming the frets that you are holding down. An "X" would mean that you don’t hit that string, or that you mute it by lightly touching it so that it doesn’t make a sound. And remember! You don’t put your fingers ON the frets, you put them a little bit behind them!

so A minor is "X-0-2-2-1-0". In this case, I mean that you don’t hit the low (thick) E string. Just don’t strum it.

And E minor is "0-2-2-0-0-0"

Often you’ll see A minor and E minor written as "Am" and "Em".

Got it? Any questions are welcome in the comments or me...
