And then you're gonna use your 2nd finger, your middle finger, to play the 3rd string, 2nd fret. And then your ring finger, your 3rd finger, we're gonna put that on the 2nd string, 2nd fret. And that's it, there you go, A major. Right, so when you strum it you want to try and avoid this 6th string. That's not supposed to be in there. But if you do that's okay. A major, right? Now sometimes you might watch some people play and they may make A differently, you know? Uh, for instance I tend to play it with two fingers. Some people play it with just one. But the easiest, most basic way to play A major is just with your three fingers like this. That's how you play A major.
