How to play A7 open chord on a guitar

Okay, so let us talk about the seventh chords, often called dominant. These are chords that draw you to another chord. For instance the A7 chord; the whole job is to get you to D.

So let us learn how to make an A7. Here is your first finger on the forth string second fret, and then your second finger going to be on the second string second fret and that’s it. I am going to strum from the fifth string and down and there you have it. It is very similar to the A chord.

There is another way to make A7. What I will do then is to press down more than one string with my first finger. Put the first finger on the second fret and hold down the forth, third and the second string, and add the second finger on the third fret on the first string. A little different but it is also an A7 chord. Again, strum from the fifth string and down.

Learn both versions and you are ready to play A7.
