C Major Guitar Chord

The C major open chord is an ideal chord for anybody who has just started to learn to play the guitar. It’s played on five strings only and uses three fingers on your fretting hand.

  • Put your ring finger on the 5th string, 3rd fret
  • Put your middle finger on the 4th string, 2nd fret
  • Put your index fingeron the 2nd string, 1st fret
  • Begin from the 5th string and strum every string below it in a quick succession. Don’t play the 6th string.

The C major chord that you’ve just made ought to look a little bit like a staircase, with your index finger forming the lowest step. It might seem uncomfortable initially to hold your fingers in that position, but do not be concerned.

Make sure none of the strings are buzzing or being muted. The more you practice each and every chord, the stronger your fingers turn out to be, the simpler it is going to be for your hand to form the chord structures.
