High “A” chord - The first chord covered in this lesson is the high A chord. When you are playing the basic "A" chord, you will place your middle finger on the G string’s second fret, and your index finger on the first fret of the C string. To create a higher A, you will place your index finger on the fourth fret of the C string, and your middle finger on the fourth fret of the A string. You also need to place your ring finger of the E string’s fifth fret. There is even a third version of a high A that you can play. Bar the ninth fret, and then place your ring finger on the A string’s twelfth fret.

High “C” chord – Next, you will move on to the high C chord. You will place your ring finger on the A string’s third fret, for the basic "C" chord shape. It’s as simple as that. To get a higher C chord, you will place your index finger on the third fret of the E string, and then your pinky finger on the seventh fret of the A string. There is a third version of the chord as well. You will want to have your index finger fret the seventh fret of the C string, while your middle finger is on the seventh fret of the A string, and your ring finger is on the eighth fret of the E string.

High “D” chord – Lastly, you'll learn how to create the high D chords. You will place your index finger on the G string’s second fret, while your middle finger goes to the C string’s second fret. The ring finger will be on the second fret of the E string. To achieve a higher D, use your index finger on the fifth fret of both A and E. Have your middle finger on the C string’s sixth fret, and your ring finger on the G string’s seventh fret.
