Watch the Day 2 online guitar lesson by Ravi from Learn Guitar in 21 Days

Today we will learn our first chord, A Major. What makes this a great place to begin is that all your fingers are placed in the same fret, the 2nd fret. While guitar players may differ on the "most correct" way to finger and strum any one chord, you'll get the most out of this course by following my suggestions and recommendations.

Don't be confused by the white lines on the outer edges of my guitar--it may look like an additional string in certain camera angles. Make sure you follow my fingering, keep those fingers arched and close to the end of the frets, and you'll be playing in no time!
