    Hi there, I'm a very new guitarist, so far I have played a few songs which were written in tabs format... my problem is I dont know how to read/play songs written in chords format..... i have learned a few chords but i dont understand how can someone play a whole sentense of a song in just 2 or 3 chords..... do we strum the whole chord at once or we do it string by string.... for example

    G C
    Gal sunja o meree Tu jaan waliya
    G D C
    tainoo rab da he raakha o jaan waliya


    G#m C#m B
    Aap ki yaad aati raheeeee raat bhar

    A B C#m
    Raa aa aaat Bhaaaar

    Please help me out here guyz...... I love to play, I just need a little push, I'd be really greatfull
    regards... Kash

    Hi Guys. Start practicing the Basic NUT position chords.

    i.e. C , D , E , F , G

    The strumming has to be done by following a PATTERN..

    i.e. DDUD, DDDU , like wise listen to SONGS and design a PATTERN ...

    Start it slowly .. Learn some CHORD PROGRESSIONS afterwards ..Keep Practising ...
