How To Play The C Chord For Beginners


In this lesson we will learn how to play the C Chord

Now we are going to start to stretch the fingers across the fret board with this chord shape.

C Chord

This chord can be difficult to play at first due to the 3 fret stretch you between the 3rd and the 1st finger. Always make sure that you are creating a bridge with all of the fingers so you don’t touch any other strings and cause a muted noise.

Make sure that you don’t play the low E string, many players mute the string by rolling their thumb over the top of the fret board so it rests on the E string.

Listen to this audio clip and compare the sound of your chord.
