C Major Chord

C Major Chord

The great thing about the C Major chord, is it seems like everything falls into place with finger placement. When you look at the shaping and the order of the fingers on the chord, it just seems natural. Ok, so the 1st thing you want to remember is do not start this chord on the 6th string. You will not play this string. You will start on the 5th string and place your 3rd finger on the 3rd fret. Next you will play the 4th string, placing your 2nd finger on the 2nd fret. The 3rd string is open. On the 2nd string, put your 1st finger on the 1st fret. The 1st string is open. Now you’re good to go!
