Yup, that was the issue! I fixed it now. Haha I got sweaty hands turning the strings tighter, afraid one would break. By now I know better. Learned a lot today which is great!

I made another video. The link is: https://youtu.be/RItpqzr7KRs which I hope you can see now or maybe another user can turn it into a direct video inside a post.

Thanks again for your reply.

Kind regards,

D

Your G string is still out of tune.
If your tuner says it in tone you may be pressing to hard and putting it out.
A big rookie mistake is to press way to hard on the strings.
You only need enough pressure to make the note ring out.

Music is the best you can give yourself.

Just reread what I wrote and see I left out the word gift.
It was supposed to say
Music is the best gift you can give yourself  :)

Thanks again! I retuned my guitar and it sounds better now!

Hi all,

Its been over a week now with the D chord ( never picked a guitar before) . While playing the chord I have to look down at the fingers, adjust a bit and then play. The adjustment time has certainly reduced but I cant  place the fingers at correct position as first go.
My question is when can I move onto the A chord. Should I be able to play the D chord without looking at the fingers ? And should I be able to place my fingers at correct location in one go ?

Welcome to the forum
You should learn all three chords together for a few reasons.
1 If you only play one chord you'll develop grooves in you fingers when your calluses
start forming.
2 You can get cramping in you finger repeating the same chord for to long.
3 You'll never learn chord changes with one chord.

What you experiencing is normal and not having to look at your fingers takes
a long time. Placing your fingers down all at once also comes with time.
Justin has a lesson later on called Air Changes that help.

Remember to have fun

Oh thanks, so I should probably move on to the next chord then, that is , the A-chord.
