FUN C Chord Strength Exercise [beginner guitar lesson]


Now that you’re familiar
with the c chord shape, I want to walk you through a musical
exercise that you can do with a c chord shape that will be musical, but it will also reinforce your fingers
and the strength required to make the shape consistently and make
the cord cleanly all the time. Now this is a little bit of
an unconventional exercise, but I found it extremely fun when I was
first playing and I think you will as well. This is just one lesson in a series
where I’ll take you from zero to guitar player in 30 days by teaching you the
four superfund skills that’ll get you hooked on guitar. Before you get started, you’ll need to download the tabs course
guide and 30 day checklist to get yours. Just click on the link in the
video or visit 30 days to play.com. So we’re going to start with the basic
c chord shape, the one you just learned, index finger first, Fred of the
beast, uh, uh, middle finger, second fret of the D and ring
finger. Third friend of the a. Once you’ve made that shape, I want you to hold on tight because your
fingers are not going to leave those strings, but we are going to move
the shape. Here’s what it looks like. We’re going to do two
strums on the c chord. [inaudible] then we’re going to
move this entire shape. Each finger is going to go up two frets
towards the guitar body, so this way, right? And we’re gonna move that ring finger
to the fifth fret of the d or The a, I’m sorry, the Middle Finger, fourth
fret of the d and the index finger, the third fret of the B. And you’re
going to do two strums there. [inaudible] do we know what chord that is?
We actually don’t care right now. It sounds cool and it reinforces the
c chord shape. Once you’ve made that, I want you to go ahead and move it
all the way up to the 10th Fret. So your ring finger is going to zoom
to the 10th fret of the ace drink. Your middle finger will be on the ninth
fret of the d string and your index finger will be on the eighth fret of
the beast. Drink two strums there. [inaudible] and then now we’re going to
descend the whole pattern again, so two more strums on this
shape at the 10th Fret [inaudible] and then you’re going to dive vomit
way clear down to that fifth fret shape [inaudible] and then you’re going to move
it back to its home position. Our lovely new c chord, two more strong [inaudible]. As I mentioned, this exercise is a great one for the
c shape and it will promote callouses eventually, but if you need a break, you can always take a breather
and come back to this. This is just one lesson in a series

  1. Thank you. Still working to heal my left wrist pain but this will be quite helpful when I’m able to play again. I truly miss learning but have been advised to continue treatments first.

  2. C chord isn't a problem, it's the F barre chord that kills me. I can play it cleanly, but any song that uses it makes my hand burn when I play through it
