Introducing Chord by Chord

This yearlong video series with Acoustic Guitar contributor Kate Koenig is designed to build your fretboard familiarity, chord fluency, and understanding of harmony.

Skill level: Beginner/Intermediate

Each installment of Chord by Chord teaches the most basic form of a chord plus several variations. If you are a beginner, feel free to concentrate on the basic form and ignore the others until you feel ready to come back to them. If you are an intermediate player, try learning one or more of the variations right away.
