How Many Chords Do I Need to Learn?

You may know that a chord is a little arrangement of your fingers pressing down on the strings of the guitar.
Further, you may have heard guitar playing friends throw around many names of chords, such as
“C major, D minor, E seventh, and F suspended flat five”. “How many of these things will I have to learn?”
you ask yourself in dismay, for the prospect seems daunting.

Fear not! With only a baker’s dozen of chords, you can play most of the songs ever turned
into radio waves and sent through the skies of America! This basic guitar course at New York City Guitar
School will teach you those chords. If you like, you may stop after these 12 or 13 chords and get by admirably!
If you do prefer to continue studying, you will find that additional chords tend to be physical
and mental variations of your first chords, and thus much easier!
