Watch the SECTION 7: Three More Chords online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands-On Guitar: The Beginner's Guide
I told you that with three chords you can rule the world. Well, here are three more. In this lesson I’ll teach you “A” – “D” and “E” chords, and a new strumming pattern and picking pattern. The same three chord songs can be played with either your “G” – “C” – “D7” or “A” – “D’ – “E”. The song will sound the same, but higher or lower in pitch. By changing the chords we change the key or tonal center and singers will often do this to adjust to the range of their voice. For you, these lessons just give you more tools for your musical toolbox.
