Watch the The A, D & E Chords online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands-On Guitar: The Beginner's Guide

In this lesson I’ll introduce you to the “A”, “D”, and “E” chords. When changing from an “A” to a “D” slide your third finger over from the second string, second fret to the second string, third fret. When moving from “D” to “E” slide the first finger over from the third string, second fret to the third string, first fret. Always keep those common tones down.
