Chord Progression Lesson for Acoustic Guitar from Next Level Guitar

I am featuring another great  lesson from David Taub with Next Level Guitar.  This is a lesson aimed at beginners and will teach you how to play a great sounding chord progression that is also easy to play.  David designed this chord progression for  beginners that do not have a great deal of experience but want to start playing something musical.

One of the biggest complaints beginners have about learning how to play acoustic guitar is that beginner lessons are far too boring.  It’s the same old boring chord progressions, chord changes and strumming patterns.  David does things differently.  He likes to change things up early on so that you do not get bored and you are inspired to keep playing.

Anyway, let’s move onto the lesson…

You will need to know how to play the following chords (Click the links to your right for lessons on how to play each of these chords) : D Minor, A Minor, Cmaj7, E Minor, Am9

The first thing you will want to do before you even start strumming is to practice your chord changes.  David will show you an excellent method that will help you change between chords quicker and more efficiently in the video lesson.  In short, he teaches you to keep your fingers close and tight to the fretboard when changing between chords.

He will also show you how to embellish these chords by adding hammer ons and pull offs to make this chord progression a bit more challenging and enjoyable to play.  I hope you enjoy this lesson!
