Beginners Guitar Lesson #1 – The basics and the C major chord

The first in my series of beginners guitar lessons. This lesson teaches you the string names and what they sound like, fiddle with numbers and how to read chord charts/diagrams, as well as how to play the C major chord. I hope it’s simple enough, but if you have any questions at all don’t hesitate to e-mail me at This is my first YouTube video, and the first time I’ve ever used iMovie, so please be kind! Edit: A lot of people have been asking which guitar strings are which, since you can’t see my hands! Sorry about that – will show them next time. This pic from Dave Walker Music will help:

    All English girls have boobs like that. No matter how huge or small they are. I have no thought what it is. The water or the milk or something.

  5. zebatov says:

    First thing you need to learn is that the word is pronounced “toon”, not “chewn”. And I don’t want a chewna fish sandwich either because I don’t know what that is.
