The Chords

Most solo guitar music is based on chords. You will be able to play the piece more smoothly and effortlessly if you first learn the chords. Some of these chords do not appear in an obvious way, for example all together on a single beat. The notes are more often spread out over multiple beats, making it the guitar learner’s job to scan across the music and visualize the chord shapes implied.
