The C chord gives a lot of beginner guitarists trouble, but it doesn’t have to be so bad. In this C chord guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play it easily.
This C chord
This chord, like the G, is going to stretch your fingers. In fact, the C chord is probably the basic chord that requires the most stretching. So, take your time to make sure that you are getting a clean sound. By doing so, you will not only have greater results with the C chord, but the rest of your playing will improve just from the extra stretching practice.
Remember to try to place your fingers toward the end of the frets — the closer you are, the less hard you need to press.

Guitar Chord Chart
Guitar chords are three or more notes played simultaneously. They have a much fuller sound than playing the individual strings.
The string to the far left is the thickest, lowest string – the 6th, low E string. The black dots show you where to put your fingers. The numbers at the top of the box are the left-hand fingers that play the notes. An “X” means that a string should not be played, and the “0” denotes an open string, which means it is played with no finger placement.
