Learn Open Guitar Chords

This is a great way to start playing the guitar. Open chords are amazing for playing your favorite songs, jamming with friends, and practicing rhythm! Open chords utilize a combination of fretted notes and open strings, which makes them easier to play than other types of chords. See the diagrams below for some examples of open chords!
