Guitar chords for kids | 3-String Guitar Chords

3 string guitar chords are the easiest chords you can play on guitar. These chords are perfect for kids or for adults who have conditions which affect the dexterity of their fingers.

These chords are easy to play and usually require only 1-2 fingers.

Quick Tip: Take any standard chord and play strings 1-3 to create the 3-string version. This works for every chord!

Here’s a few classic examples of some 3-string guitar chords:

Stepping-Stone Chords And Open Chords

Stepping-stone chords are easier versions of more advanced guitar chords.

If you’re a beginner guitarist you must start with stepping-stone chords as this helps you develop your technique and dexterity. Then, once you’re ready, you can have a go at harder chords.

You must know how to play every major and minor chord. We’re going to show you every stepping-stone chord and open chord. Let’s get stuck in.

Quick Tip!

Every time you see a chord without the word ‘minor’ after it, this is a major chord.

Like this:

  • ‘A’ = A major chord
  • ‘A Minor’ = A minor chord

If you want to enhance your musicality, you must learn how to strum. Learn how to do this in this free guitar lesson: How To Strum
