Good Times Chords
So the first thing that we’re gonna be doing is to check out the chords that I’m playing. The first chord that I’m playing is an Em7, the second chord is E7sus4, for the third chord A7sus4 and then one to this one which is DM7. So let’s break it down. For the first one, Em7, maybe some of you already know it. So for this one the main thing that you gotta do is place your index finger on the 7th fret of all the strings, but ideally you put it started on the fifth. After that you’re gonna grab your ring finger and you’re gonna place it on the ninth fret of the fourth string and the middle finger is going to go on the eighth fret of the second string. That’s your first chord, that’s one of the most used chords… After that it’s super easy you have this it’s good right there and all you got to do is put your pinkie on the tenth fret of the second string to get E7sus4… After that we’re gonna go into this one… so for this one you’re gonna place your index finger once again all over the fifth fret of all the strings and then right after that ring finger onto your seventh fret of the fifth string and then pinky finger onto the seventh fret of the third string… Right after that we’re gonna go into a DM7. For this one you’re gonna keep the index finger where it is, but this time we’re gonna do ring finger on the seventh fret of the fourth string, middle finger on the sixth fret of the third string and pinky finger on the seventh fret of the second string…
