Want to hear a "jazzy" or "bluesy" type of sound on your guitar? The 7th chords give you this effect and can be a great way to enhance the feel of a song!
How to Play an A7 on guitar:
- Place Your Left Middle Finger on the 4th String, 2nd Fret
- Place Your Left Ring Finger on the 2nd String, 2nd Fret
- Strings 5, 3 and 1 are used this A7 Chord, but are not fretted - they are called open strings
- String 6 is not used in this A7 Chord
Bonus Tip: You can easily move from an A Major chord to an A7 by removing your middle finger from the 3rd string, 2nd fret when playing an A Major. Try it out and see if you can hear the difference between a Major and a 7th chord!
