Major - Left Handed Guitar
These chords are charted for Left Handed guitarists. The 15 Major chords shown are played near the NUT of the guitar in the 1st position. Chords that use open strings are also known as 'Open Position' or 'Folky' chords (A, C, D, E & G are common). All chords shown are Root Position chords since the lowest note of each chord is the Root with the exception of Ab which has the 5th note (Eb) in the bass.

The Note names of each Chord are written above every Chord diagram to help you learn the Notes used in the chord and the notes on the Fretboard. The Chord Symbol (A) is shown inside the diagram at the top. Beside each diagram is the Score with the chord symbol and Tablature.

                                                  A Major Chord
                                                        = A C# E


                                               
At the bottom of each Chord diagram are the Root (1st) - 3rd & 5th Note names of each Major chord with numbers below to show suggested fingerings for your Left Hand.

Beside each Chord diagram is the Music Score with the Chord Symbol above and Tablature (a visual aid for writing guitar parts instead of reading music) below.

           

The Music Score includes Sound that lets you Hear the Chord and See the Timing for each string played by watching the Vertical Blue Line move across the Music over the Notes and TAB on the beat.   Use the Controls on TOP of the Music Score to Play and practice or change the settings.

           

When you Click Play     the Score will 1st strum the chord and then plays each string in a downward motion and repeat once.

Click Stop when you're done. Other controls include Pause, Fast Forward, ReWind and Pitch or Key change.

You can also practice by playing along. The Slider Control     lets you change the Tempo or Speed from Slower to Faster without changing the pitch.
Click on the Slider Control and drag it Left (Slower) or Right (Faster).

A list of exercises using 3 chords at a time (D-G-A, A-D-E, G-C-D and C-F-G) are at the bottom of this page complete with Music Scores. These are common chords used in songs, so memorize a group of 3 chords from this page to prepare for the exercises. Ideally, you want to memorize how to play chords by Name and recognize the Chord Symbols.
