Using the F Major as an example: We know the Intervals for a Major Chord is 1-5-8. Using the Major – Minor Guitar Chords Chart find the fret map for the F Major Chord. Here you will see the notes of F – A – C that make up the F Major Chord.

Anywhere you can reach and play these three notes at the same time an F Major is played. With Guitar there are standard Chord Shapes. These shapes are used repeatedly to play different chords.

The Chord Shapes are displayed in Chord Blocks where the dots represent the notes played and the vertical lines reflecting the strings. This first shape, when played in open Fret position makes the chord E Major. Slide up one position and barre the first Fret and you play a F Major (E, F, F#, G, etc..) as you move up the fret with this chord shape.

This next shape is the typical shape of a C Major on the open fret. Move up to the 5th fret, barre it, (put your first finger across the entire neck of the guitar) and play another F Major.

The 3rd chord shape is that of the A Major when played at the open fret. Move up to the 8th fret barre it and play the chord shape as shown. Another F Major.

Notice that the chord shapes remain the same, yet the chord changes depending on where it is played. As the shape progresses up the fret board one step it changes to the next chord. E.g. F to F#, then to G Major.

Using the Major – Minor Guitar Chords chart, spend some time noticing how these patterns move and change. The chart has been organised in a progressing order, meaning that major chords on the left side of the page are harmonically balanced with each other and to their immediate right are their related minors.

Using the Major – Minor Guitar Chord chart play the chords immediately above or below or to the left or right to remain in Key. Experiment with different chord positions and combinations. Through this practice resource, you will soon get a feel for how the chord patterns move up and down your guitar neck.

Here are two of the Minor Chord Patterns, the first A Minor from the open fret position and the next A Minor with a barre of the 5th fret.
