HandyChord is for learning guitar chords.

If you're a beginner, or a life-long player, this website is for you. HandyChord allows guitarists to quickly and easily find and learn chords by delivering them in high definition video. By watching a hand play the chord, you not only see the correct fingerings, but the proper technique. You can also view the chord as a simple diagram, or a hybrid of the video and diagram to make things more clear. If you're a lefty, you can flip the chord. If you need a close-up, you can zoom. If you need to see the chord from a first person perspective, you can even flip the video around so that the guitar neck appears as it would if you were holding it.

Users can also chat in the forums, look for help in the help area, or learn more from the free lessons as they become available. This is a great place to be if you want to improve your guitar playing skills.
