On C Major, well, I have to stretch my fingers quite a bit to get it, and I was wondering how this chord is supposed to sound, and I think it's kinda lowish, but I can't be sure when i don't think I got it right. My fingers are always touching other strings, because i go back to check if they are or not. and when i strum it, it just doesnt sound like their all going. any suggestions? (should i wait for my fingers to get longer or what? lol)

Well, just focus and make sure you have your fingering perfect before you strum... and do it everytime you try to play it.

Remember: when learning something you can'y quite do, playing slower is the key.

id also suggest running the open C major scale alot.

e - ------------------------
B - ------------------0--1----
G - -----------0--2---------
D - --0--2--3-----------------
A - 3-----------------------
E - ---------------------------

doing scales will help limber the fingers and get them able to stretch for anything ;)

Yeah, I've also got really short fingers. But still I reach more and better than alot others with longer fingers.. Simply practicing would do the trick :)

Wow this brings me back to my first year of playing. I have short fingers to. But if you practice at least 1 hour a day, within a couple weeks your Cmajor will start sounding cleaner. Make sure your fingers are not touching the open strings as not to mute them, and always remember to play with the finger tips! well except when playing barre chords. Well hope it helped!

And remember to at least try and fret the strings with the tips of your fingers, that way you are not hitting any other strings behind it and get the scratch sound. I hate doing that.

i think the more you play the bigger your hands get :)

at least they get used to stretching more so, you finger can cover more frets.

Yeah and you get like used to stretching. Well, put it this way: Your fingers develop calluses to ease the pain so you don't feel much or any. When you get used to stretching, you feel less pain because your hand is used to it.

That's what happened to me anyways

C major is notorious for unwanted string muting because of the open D string.

god this reminds me of when i just was starting (3 weeks ago) i got so fustrated with how mi fingers would mute other open notes. this is where practice comes in. try some songs with easy chords like d or g and eventually ull get it
