Best Answer...


Rather than learning exact chords (like a C minor chord for example), you are better off trying to learn the chords within a scale. Learn the basics first, the main ones of which (are chords I (one), IV (four), and V (five), with chords ii (two), iii (three), six (vi) are also used often (upper case for major, lower case for minor. In a minor key the numerals are in a different case to the example ones - i.e. chord i rather than chord I). In the key of C major these chords would be: I. C, ii. D minor, iii. E minor, IV. F, V. G, vi. A minor. Chord seven is used less frequently and you need to learn the others first in my opinion.

After you know all of these in both major and minor scales, and the seventh chord of the scales, then you can learn about augmented, diminished, 7th, etc. chords.

You should be able to find some good lessons online. If you have a piano or keyboard, practice playing some chord progressions based around chord I (eg. I IV V I) over and over until you can hear it immediately. Try it in different keys. Get used to what each chord change sounds like. What chord number seems to be the most natural in succession to the last? What songs/pieces use particular ones (an example is Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star; figure out what chord progression it uses)? Don't give up if you find it hard. Some people find it much easier than others do.
