I am starting new on the guitar. I have been practicing my transitions from chords G, C, and D and am struggling with quick transitions? When I try to move faster for the G, C, and D song I get worse. Any pointers?

Newbie here too. I struggled with a couple of things that held me back in those chords.

- using too much pressure when holding the chord. With a strong grip it is harder to release and move to the other chord. Try to loosen the pressure to as light as possible , but the chord on all strings still sounds good.

- not all fingers need to move when transitioning from one chord to another, move only those that need to change

Guitar takes lots of patience and lots of repetitive practise.

Rough transitions are normal starting out. Using a metronome will help, start out slow then speed up as you can.

Are you doing Fundamental 1 or 2?
