Watch the The Em Chord online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands-On Guitar: The Beginner's Guide

The “E minor” chord in this lesson is a favorite for beginners because you strum all the strings and it has a nice full and haunting sound. Remember when switching between “E minor” and “A minor” move your second and third fingers together from the 5th and 4th to the 4th and 3rd strings.
