Beginner Chords and Chord Progressions

The eGuide includes chord charts of the most common (and some less common) beginner chords. It also includes a list of several useful chord progressions. The chord progressions are created using the chords in the eGuide. This will give you an idea of which chords sound good together and how they can be grouped together to form songs. This will prevent you from learning a bunch of random chords that you don’t know how to use practically.

The open Bm7 (B minor 7) chord is a really useful beginner chord that you should learn early on. It can be found in many songs.

In case you were wondering:
*A chord is a group of notes (typically three or more) played simultaneously
*An open chord is a chord played in the first three frets of the guitar and usually includes at least one open string
*An open string is a string that you don’t fret (push down) but let ring out (in standard tuning the open strings are 6th: E, 5th: A, 4th: D, 3rd: G, 2nd: B, 1st: E

  • thanks i needed Bm7 to learn Hot Chocolate- So You Win Again, among the coolest songs of that era.

    chords are A, C#7, F#m7, Bm7, E7 and later there's D, Dm, A, F#7, Bm, E7

    i couldn't find a bass cover or bass lesson of SO YOU WIN AGAIN so i made my own according to what my ears hear lol.

  • Are there other ways that this chord can be played? because I've seen other people say they are playing bm7 but their fingering looks nothing like this.
