                 LEARNING ABOUT CHORDS

          A chord is made up of more than one note.
          On the guitar, we play more than one string at at time.
          Our first chord uses three strings - G, B and E.



                    E minor (Em)
                                     The circles (o) mean to play the open strings.


                                      To play the E minor chord,
                                      simply play the open first,
                                      second, and third strings.


                            G B E


 The basic strum is a downstroke (      ) on each beat of every measure.

 To produce a clear sound, use the fingertip to press the string down
 just behind the third fret. If the sound is not clear, add a little more
 pressure with your third finger.

When you change from G to Em, lift the tip of your third finger
off the string just enough to allow the open strings to sound
clearly. Your finger will then be in position to play the G chord
again without pausing.
