So let's talk about C major. C major can be a tricky chord at first to learn. So what you're gonna do is you're gonna put your first finger on 2nd string, 1st fret. Then your 2nd finger is gonna go on the 4th string, 2nd fret. And then your 3rd finger is gonna go on the fifth string 3rd fret. And that's kind of a, that's, that's the hard part I think cause that's a little bit of a reach. In fact I have to really make my finger, really bend a little awkwardly in order to get it in there, and I don't want anything to hit the other strings. And this is it, when I strum it I'm trying to avoid the 6th string. C major.
