In free guitar chords lessons we will begin teaching basic chords that you should have down and be able to switch smoothly between them along with a metronome. For the following chords and practice, start at a low setting around 50-60 and hit one chord for a duration of 4 clicks of the metronome ( in other words, a whole note value of 4/4 time setting ).

NOTE : Never practice to the point of pain, take breaks and return if pain begins.
