C7 chord - just to say that my little finger wouldn't ever behave when trying to place this chord.

The solution that's worked for me was to:
a) place 3 & 4 first, then add 1 & 2.
b) lifting off/ replacing 3 & 4 in one go while still holding down 1 & 2

Maybe this will help someone!  ;)

Hey Justin, I have a question about your C7 chord in stage 4 of your beginners course. To make the C7 chord you have people add the fourth finger on the G string third fret but that is an A sharp which doesn't fit into a C chord and I'm curious what your reasoning behind that was rather than dropping the A from the B string and adding the seventh in there.

A C7 or C dominant 7 uses the intervals 1 3 5 b7 In the case of the C7 the G(5th) is left out.
The b7 of Cmajor is Bb

This part of you question I don't understand. The note played on the B string is a C if you leave it off you
will be playing a B note which is the 7th of C major so you would be playing a Cmaj7 1 3 5 7
