Guitar Chords for Beginners #12 – Chord Families G C D

guitar chords for beginners - C chord

Welcome back.

We’re going to take that idea of chord families and take it up a notch, add the C chord to it.

1-4-5 in the Key Of C

Here’s a chord family for the C chord. We’ll start on C then we go G and D. We’ll use those three chords. The one chord, that is the G here. G, A, B, C is the four chord and after C comes D, the five chord. Chord family for G. Go to C and to D and to G.

Let’s Play Together

Ready, G, C, go into D, G, G, C, D, G. Quick, let’s do the chord family for A. Ready, A, D, E, A. Okay, snuck that in there didn’t I? Do D, we did before. Let’s do it. D, E… Oh, I made that up. Sorry. D, G, A7, D. Ready, D, G, A7, and D. Good. Okay, so that’s it for this video.

There are many easy guitar songs you can play with the chords I’ve taught you so far. If you haven’t already try Happy Birthday.

I look forward to seeing you in my next video. Take care.

    Bonjour Tomas:

    Le commentaire sur la leçon est une aide pour l’élève, je peux retrancrire visuellement , et l’audio pour suivre la technique , le rythme et réécouter encore et encore.

      Thank you, Ron. I was always thinking that my lesson is fun and easy but not proven unless somebody told me and since you do, I’m glad.
