Guitar Chords

From GuitarWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The number on the left represents the lower pitched E string. There's a diagram below. The number represents what fret you should be on and an "x" represents a string you don't strum. A "0" represents a string played open (no fret).

The diagram beneath shows which fingers to put and where. Your index finger is 1, middle is 2, ring is 3, pinky is 4, and thumb is T; 0 represents a string played open. The "|" denotes a played string, the "o" denotes finger holding the fret down, and the "x" denotes a string not played. These are the most common fingerings, but variations are used as well.

There are several good web sites related to chords, you can find them on the Guitar Links page.
