Eight Guitar Chords You Need to Learn Now!
If you know how to play an E major chord, then you know how to play an A minor chord... just move the chord whole shape over a string. Make sure your first finger is curled, so the open first string rings clearly. Also, avoid playing the open sixth string when strumming the A minor chord.

Note: there are situations when it makes sense to reverse your second and third fingers when playing the A minor chord. Try playing it both ways!
