Today we'll add the C Major chord, and there are lots of songs that we can play using the new chord in two, three, and four chord combinations. 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.
