The Easy E Chords

This is one of the easiest chords to learn and play. It was my first chord that I learned on the acoustic guitar. Most people can play the E or E Minor chord right off the bat.

        The E chords are in so many songs you hear everyday on the radio. Its an easy transition chord as well.

Remember This…


“I don’t mind stealing bread”
The verse most of us know from the song Hunger Strike by the combined bands of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. 


The time was April 16,1991  Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder we’re taking their bands to new highs ,and making this album was a bonus for all the Soundgarden and Pearl Jam fans. They were no strangers to one another both being vocalists in the band Mother Love Bone

During this time the Seattle scene was hot with bands like Soundgarden ,Pearl Jam and Nirvana all making a come up.This album was icing on the cake for A&M records,with hit songs like Hunger Strike and Say Hello 2 Heaven.temple-of-the-dog-4fd30d7435541

Recorded at the London Bridge Studio in Seattle Washington in only 15 days they say. If you’re in your mid 30’s this band will bring you back. Both bands combined for this album was a great move and will go down as one of the bast albums of its time. Sometimes you might catch Cris Cornell singing one of the songs from that album on his Acoustic tour.

Finger Tips 

Keeping your hands in the right position will not only help your chord changing skills, but will make your chords wring more clear. 

Your Fingertips are the wheels that keep this car moving.  If you are a beginner and you are dealing with sore fingertips start practicing like this. 

Practice every other day ,that way it’s not so hard to pick up where you left off.

 Learning these chords require lots of repetition (muscle memory). Once you get them down,it’s stuck in your brain for ever. Just like riding a bike

If your fingertips are starting to get sore “and they will” just take break for a day and fight through it on the day after.  

Your fingers will develop tough skin on the very tips. After a few months of playing you won’t even notice.   Playing the guitar has a lot going on all at the same time, sore fingertips is just half of it.

Acoustic buddy  Tip 1 

Tip: Learning the acoustic guitar is painful on the fingertips. But not so bad if you go with a lighter gauge string.   

 Easier to manage pressing with your fingers. 

Beware  a lighter gauge string means easier to break during installation.  Just make sure you know what you’re doing when installing a lighter gauge string.
