Watch the Open Position Etude: C online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Fingerstyle Milestones

Now we're in the key of C, and I like teaching this because now it's a bit more difficult. We've got to move the bass, using this finger like that. We go to F, there's the F bar chord, which, for a beginner is pretty hard to play because you've got to push down all of those strings. But if you're comfortable with it, that will be easier for you. A lot of times I use my thumb over the top, but you may not be comfortable getting your thumb over there on the F. I'm so used to it that my hand does it without thinking about it. But now that I'm teaching you this method, I'll stick to the bar chords for you. So let's play C, F, G, and back to C.
