How to Play A7 on the Guitar (Free Video Lesson)

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!
