Open Chords

Hello, this is Kevin site owner of Expressive-Guitar-Lessons.com Here are all the basic chords to get you started on guitar. Open chords are usually within the first three frets of the guitar and utilize the open strings.

Some chords like B Major, C Minor and others are not true open chords but I have provided the most basic fingerings for these chords as well.
