A Guide for Beginner - More Minor Chords - Page 3
by Christopher Sung
Now that you've become an expert with barre chords, it's time to learn one more. I find this fingering to be a bit easier because you only have to barre 5 strings instead of the 6 strings for our G minor. The fingering for a C minor chord is shown below:
So how do you go about fingering this? Take your first finger and lay it across the 1st 5 strings on the 3rd fret. Now place your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fingers in the appropriate places according to the diagram. Try strumming it. It's OK if some notes don't ring. That's natural. In time, all the notes will ring loud and true. The important thing is that you now know the two basic barre chord forms for all minor chords!.
Try playing the music example below, set your loop count to "Forever" in your preferences at the bottom of the page, hit the play button, wait for the music to start, and try to play along with the example. It'll help you become more comfortable with the chord.
