The C major chord uses five strings, with the bass note being located at the third fret of the fifth string.

Remember to skip over the low E string with your pick when you are playing the C chord.

Try your best to make the C chord, then be sure and do a tone check on yourself to see what little micro-adjustments you might need to make in your hand and finger positions in order to get the best tone you can.

Don't worry if it doesn't sound perfect yet - you'll get it with practice.
