As a musician you will soon find out that by learning a handful of chords this allows you to play many songs. Once you have learnt these five key chords you can play all the songs on the beginner songbook, and soon enough you will find that you can sound like your favourite artists.
*TOP TIP- Practice while watching TV! Sitting on your living room couch, choose a chord you want to learn and just hold your fingers in position while watching your favourite television show- you don't even need to make a sound!
Do this with all of the above chords and two things will happen:
1. Your fingers will toughen
2. Your brain will react quicker the next time you play these chords
