Im on this lesson - https://www.guitartricks.com/lesson/31286 and while i know the Chords im still having to place my fingers one at a time, 3rd fret, 2nd fret then 1st fret for the C Major chord rather than being able to place them all down in the right place together.


Any tips or is this something that will just come with practice and time?


Thanks.

As long as you keep practicing it will eventually become second nature to place your fingers more simultaneously to form chords.


You can help yourself by focusing on chord change motion for part of your practice session.


Form a C major chord. Strum it once. Stop. Form a different chord. G major, whatever you are working on. Strum it once. Stop.


Repeat!


The idea is to focus all of your practice efforts towards forming the chord and getting your fingers in place. Don't worry about strumming in time or anything other than forming the chords.


Hope that helps.
