Don’t worry, you’re in luck. There’s a secret to learning guitar chords quickly.

Here it is:

Every time you play a chord correctly, squeeze your hand.

This enables your hand to ‘remember’ the guitar chord, making everything easier for you in the process!

However, be careful. Make sure you play the chord correctly.

If you play the chord incorrectly and then squeeze your hand, you’ll be teaching your hand to remember the incorrect chord.

Make sure your chord is perfect before squeezing!
