Comprehensive List of 2-Finger Chords for Guitar

TWO FINGER CHORDS Everybody learns the guitar at a different pace. And not only that, everybody is different in terms of what aspects of playing the guitar they find to be most difficult. Many who begin learning the guitar find that chords are the most difficult part. Learning to quickly put your fingers in the chord position, get an accurate sound out of each string, push correctly on the frets. And your right hand�learning to strum the strings, and also to avoid the strings that are not a needed for the chord. Putting it all together can seem pretty difficult, especially since in real music we may need to switch chords fairly fast. If you're one of the learners who finds chords to be a struggle, this page is for you. All of the chords on this page can be played using only two fingers�or less. And if you search around, you may even find you can use these chords to play a song you know, or at least part of one. A couple tips for these chords. First, you want to try to practice them in a set called a chord progression. This way you can here the sound of the chords moving to other chords. Here are a couple examples: [C, C, E7, Am7 | E7, A7, E7, E7 | G, Em, C, C] Note that some of these chords have X's written over certain strings. That means you don't play those strings. Whether you just avoid those strings with the pick, or you use your fingers to pluck only the notes of the chord and not any other strings. Also, keep in mind these chords may not always be a good match. For example, the chords that use all 6 strings don't sound great with chords that use only 3. That's because they don't sound like they match well. First you have this big giant chord, then this little one Learning and studying these chords�getting truly comfortable with them and even mastering them completely�will be all of the exercise your hands and fingers need for now. So if you're having trouble with chords, really work through these alot, frequently, every day, until your hands start to feel ready to take on a new challenge.

Here’s a cool fact that most beginner guitarists don’t know: There is an easy version of EVERY chord.

This isn’t always clear to beginners which often means they try to tackle unsuitable chords. (It’s really not necessary, there are easy guitar chords that you should use to make things easier for yourself.)

I call these easy versions ‘stepping-stone’ chords and they are a cornerstone of my teaching philosophy.

Stepping stone chords allow beginner guitarists to progress quickly, have fun and increase their chances of successfully learning the guitar. There is no downside.

Example Stepping-Stone Chords

Here are 4 stepping-stone chord examples. These are easy guitar chords that most beginners can manage.

If you don’t understand what these images mean read this article:

The basic principle here is that you substitute the standard chord for the easier version.

  • So when you need to play C major, you simply play Cmaj7 instead.
  • When you need to play D, you play Dsus2 instead.

It’s important you understand that this is something that guitarists do all the time, not just beginners. We’re always trying different chord voicings from our vocabulary to see what sounds best.

Don’t see using stepping-stone chords as ‘cheating’. Using stepping-stone chords is a progress accelerator. While using them you are developing your control and dexterity, all of which will help you tackle more difficult chords in the future.

Ok, let’s get into the main body of this guide and learn some easy guitar chords.

Easy Guitar Chords – ‘A major’ (A)

‘A major’ is a chord that guitarists encounter early on in their guitar journey. It’s a common chord and while it’s not super difficult to play, it does pose a challenge for a total beginner who would prefer to be playing easy guitar chords.

A major

easy guitar chords A major

Squeezing three fingers into one fret can be fiddly for some people, especially people with chunky fingers. Even so, this is a chord that we simply must be able to play, because it’s so common. We need an easy alternative!

The version of A major that I teach all my students is Asus2. It looks like this:


easy guitar chords Asus2

You can see that this is a much easier chord to play, it only requires two fingers and they are bunched together in a way that is nice and compact. Easy guitar chords don’t come much easier than this.

The only challenge here is strumming the chord without making contact with the sixth string (the thickest string). But don’t worry too much about missing that string out to begin with, it’s far more important that you get comfortable holding the instrument and strumming.

(You can worry about finessing the chord’s voicing as you improve.)

However, it does require three fingers to play which means the difficulty level rises. An excellent version of A minor for beginner guitarists is Am7. It looks like this:

A minor 7

As you can see this is only a two finger chord, and as you will see later on this is a very similar chord shape to C major. For reasons that we won’t go into here A minor and C major are very closely linked. (Those two chords crop up together all the time.)

Because of this Am7 is an excellent bedfellow! Moving from C major to Am7 is very easy to do. (And vice versa.)

You can learn more easy ways to play Am by reading this lesson.
