Now we are going to understand what a chord is and how to make a chord!
A chord is a combination of notes played together .To make you understand, I'll give you an example. If we play all the strings or some of the strings of the guitar we are possibly playing a chord.
There are some basic chords which we need to know how those are formed and played in the guitar.
