How to Learn Guitar Chord Transitions in 4 Easy Steps

Chord Transitions: The Pivot Technique

Most beginning guitarists remove their fingers from the neck when switching chords. While this may occasionally produce a dramatic pause, it's more likely to inspire awkward silence. Here's where the pivot technique comes into play. In the pivot technique, one finger remains at the same fret during a transition, functioning as a pivot for the rest of the fingers. For example, the index finger is in the same location in a G chord as in a­n E minor; leaving it in one place saves time and effort, producing a better transition at a quicker pace.

But what happens if you need to switch between two chords with no common note? Watch the next video to find out.
