Watch the Cmaj7 & C Chords online guitar lesson by Rich Maloof from Acoustic Guitar For Beginners
With a third chord under your fingers, you're on your way to playing a full series of chords known as a progression.
In the previous clip we learned a new chord by adding a single finger (index finger on the first fret of the 2nd string). Now we get a new chord by moving two lower notes, or chord voices, up one string each.
Learn the new chord (F major 7th, sometimes written Fmaj7), then start practicing how to change among the three chords while strumming. You may first want to familiarize yourself with the changes by going through the chord shapes without strumming.
