Hi Sairfingers,

I am using the standard 1,2,3  fingerings for the C major. I am an older beginner (56) and my fingers aren't as nimble as they used to be to make chord changes quickly, especially to that C major, and yes, I am doing finger stretching / fretboard exercises. Other than this issue I am making good progress and I even cracked the dreaded F barre chord, so this issue is indeed frustrating.

I will try the fingering you suggested, cheers

Laser, just in case...note sairfingers was talking about using fingers 234 for G chord not C chord.

Sorry, yes, I misread sairfingers post  ::)  I am using a full 4 finger G chord and often I will drop fingers 1 & 2 down a string to make for an easier transition to C when playing songs (Cadd9) but of course I should be able to change quickly to a standard C major chord by now!!
