Although thousands of chord formations are possible, in reality most songs can be played using just a few chords. On each row below there are
five important chords listed for each of the five most common keys. Notice that although there are 25 chord diagrams, quite a few of them are duplicates. This is because they
are important chords in more than one key. Therefore there are only 17 different chords listed on this chart.
It is not necessary to memorize these chords immediately. As you learn new songs, each one will require the use of some of the chords below. At
that time you should commit them to memory. If you are an absolute beginner, be patient with yourself. Learning to change chords quickly is something that takes time.
