Watch the SECTION 11: More Chord Shapes online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands-On Guitar: The Beginner's Guide

You have lots of chords in your vocabulary now. What we need to do is get our changes smoother and faster. I offer this practice tip to all my students. When you’re watching TV or on the phone, keep your guitar in hand. Don’t push down or make a sound, but practice moving from chord to chord. This reinforces that muscle memory that I talk about. It’s like finger aerobics.
