Below is a handy open guitar chord chart that you can download and print for offline viewing.
Open chords are guitar chords that utilize open strings. They should be among the first chords a guitarist learns.
Don’t know how to read a chord diagram like you see in the chord chart? Learn how here.
If you don’t know all the chords on the chart, I suggest you print it out and work on memorizing them. Take your time and learn one or two chords a day or cram it all in a day or two. What’s important is that you can play them and identify them by name.
You’ll find these types of chords:
- Major chords such as E, A, C, G, D
- Minor chords such as Em, Am, Dm
- Seventh chord such as E7, A7, B7
- Major seventh chords such as AM7, CM7
- Minor seventh chords such as Em7, Am7
Learn how to play the major chords first, which are the most common, followed by the minor chords. Then learn the other variations.
