Don’t waste time learning chords with over 100 chords for each key. Learn at least 50 of them. And this is not only for the guitar, but also for piano, violin and other instruments. You will be able to play chords quickly and quickly learn any scale.
Don’t waste time memorizing chord progressions either. Learning chords requires only 2 or 3 simple practice drills. The progression for any scale that goes up to the last ii-V is: (Eb-F-Abb9),(A-D-G/#11) ,(B-E-Bm-Dn11),(C-Ds4-D7) ,(E-F-Ab9,B-E7) and (G-F-Ab5,G7) .

This will help you pick chords faster. For example we learn the D7 chord in the first step when the first step involves moving up a minor key. On the second, third and fourth steps, our focus switches to a major key. Once we get used to it, the chords sound different.
