Could you learn to play 100 guitar chords in under 10 minutes. Sounds like a tough challenge but bear with us and we will let Sean Daniels show you how.
However, when learning anything in life the best place to start is with a good story…
When I started playing the guitar the only thing that I wanted to do was to play amazing, face melting, super fast fret board shredding solos. That is what I dedicated my life to achieving and, with some practice, I became ok at soloing. But when it came to showing off my skills sadly the majority of people were, to put it mildly, underwhelmed. However, play the chords to their favourite song and they were blown away by my skill and prowess on the guitar.
This was an early lesson in the importance of guitar chords. Much as soloing is great fun, chords are the life blood of any song. Therefore spending time learning how chords are constructed and how to play them on the guitar is never wasted time.
Sadly playing guitar chords can be tricky. Bending your fingers into intricate patterns can be a touch confusing, a little tough on the fingers and also a little boring. But don’t be put off by learning and playing fluently as many guitar chords as you can. If you try you will find that you progress far more quickly on the guitar.
Story over, let’s get back to the reason for the post which is to learn to play 100 guitar chords in under 10 minutes.
This may seem like an impossible challenge but guitar teacher Sean Daniels is here to prove us all wrong.
He uses an ingenious method of breaking the chords down to 9 root chord shapes on the E String, a further 9 root chords on the A string and finally 9 root chords on the D-string. By learning these basic chords shapes and sliding them up and down the fret board you can learn 100s of guitar chords in a very short time.
