Ok, Now I have made this lessons for the beginning guitarist, after this lesson you should get some basic chords under you belt, a few good habits, and a bit of knowledge of Chord Construction.

First of all, here is a chart of every note on the first 12 frets of a standard tuned 6 string guitar. Starting from the 6th string (thickest), to the 1st (smallest).

0-1-2--3--4--5-6---7-8-9-10-11-12
E F F# G G# A A# B C C# D D# E
A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G# A
D D# E F F# G G# A A# B C C# D
G G# A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G
B C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B
E F F# G G# A A# B C C# D D# E

Use this chart to see what notes are being played in any chord you play, and if you memorize it, it'll make finding different voiceings later much easier. The number above show which fret each note is on, 0 means playing it open.

Now practice playing this Emaj (E Major) chord and write down the notes on each string and see if you see any pattern.
