E minor Chord time to lift a finger...
Time to lift a finger! E minor is very easy and you should have no trouble with it. It’s just like an E but with one less finger to worry about. There are actually two more options for fingering this chord:
Check that your E minor sounds like this clip:
Learn to play this chord with your 2nd and 3rd fingers as shown above; later on, you could come back and experiment with using your 1st and 2nd, or 3rd and 4th fingers. You’ll eventually find that you’ll decide which fingering to use depending upon the song you’re playing, and the chords you’re playing before or after Em.
You'll probably get this one pretty quick, and then we are on to BC-123 • The Dmin Chord

Justinguitar Beginner's Products
I have four great beginners products that will help you make the most of this course. Most popular is The Justinguitar Beginners Songbook which contains 100 songs arranged by difficulty that perfectly match up with each level of the course. Many people told me they like books more than web pages so we've made The Justinguitar Beginners Course Book (comes with 2 x CD's too!) and many people found being online to watch the videos a pain so we offer The Justinguitar Beginners Course DVD which also means you can watch the vids in much better quality. Together they complete the whole online course and are perfect when there is no internet connection!! Also very popular is Practical Music Theory for those that like to know what they are doing and why!! It covers very basic theory in an easy to digest way and puts it onto the guitar! They are all available in Bundle Packs too where you can save a bunch of money!!
