Watch the SECTION 1: Open Chord Vocabulary online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands On Guitar: Beyond Beginner

These next lessons are a review of all your open chords. Sometimes, even people who have been playing for a while need to revisit these chord shapes. Listen to the quality of each chord and notice how major chords sound bright and happy. Minor chords are darker and sad. Dominant 7th chords (7) have a bluesy sound, while major 7th chords have a relaxing and pretty sound. Minor 7th chords take the edge off that dark minor sound. What do you hear? These chords will also serve as preparation for the barre chords that I'll teach you in a later lesson
