How to Play Your Guitar - Revealed - Super Quick Chord Changes

 As you’re practicing guitar, you will reach the point when you will know more than three chords. It is at this point in learning how to play your guitar that it is imperative to begin practicing your chord changes. 

When learning how to play your guitar you will encounter what are called chord changes. Chord changes are switching from one guitar chord to the next guitar chord in a smooth and fast motion. One of the most challenging things that hinders a new guitar player when learning to do chord changes is accurately and quickly switching from chord to chord. 

Let’s take a look at 3 easy steps that will help you to achieve super quick chord changes. 

1. Memorize your guitar chords 
2. Learn the ergonomics of guitar chords 
3. Module chord practice 

1. Memorize your guitar chords: In order to begin switching from chord to chord super fast, you need to memorize as many guitar chords that you have learned as possible. The more you have your guitar chords memorized, the easier it will be to play your guitar chords individually. This in turn will allow you to transition to the next chord more quickly due to not having to figure out your chord fingering. 

2. Learn the ergonomics of guitar chords: This might sound more complicated than what it really is. Chord ergonomic playing is just finding the best fingering for the chord you are playing that will allow you to transition to your next chord as quickly and smoothly as possible. For example, there are two ways to play the A major basic chord. You can use your first three fingers (1, 2, and 3) which is what most beginner guitar players learn how to do, or you can learn how to play a major with the last three fingers (2, 3, and 4) and discover that using this fingering position will allow for smoother and quicker chord changes. 

3. Module chord practice: Learning to take your chord switching playing abilities to the next level will require practice. Take two chords and practice switching between the two chords back and forth for two minutes. Take two brand-new chords and practice switching these chords back and forth over and over again for another two minutes. In a 10 minute module unit you can practice switching guitar chords using 10 different chords.
