If you are trying to learn chords fast, you don’t need to do any extra practice. Here are a few tips that can keep you playing guitar with no additional practice.
1. Use your left hand for finger placement
Even though it might be natural and logical to place your fingers on the strings that are below your fingers when playing guitar, the music you play will force you to do that more often, and that’s why if you make it easier to do, you will do some time more.
You can learn many useful finger placements in the first 2 weeks of music lessons.
2. Use your right hand
Nowadays, when playing guitar, people usually use mostly their right hand for right hand finger placements (for example: when you play a C, you should use your right hand, if you play a D you should use your left). Don’t you think about that before you go for lessons?

There’s not much that you can learn with just the A chord. In fact, it’s usually the most common, and you will find it so often that it will be a habit to practice your notes with this chord when you are not using the fretboard. That’s why you need to do something if you want to improve your performance of guitar licks and chords.
6. Get a guitar teacher.
Most guitar teachers don’t have practice videos for all the songs you learn all the time. They usually only have the ones of the songs you are really good at to try to practice. But you need to learn the chords of the songs and the songs you’re really weak at in order to learn it quickly with a teacher.
7. Always have a good memory.
