How to play a C chord

You’re going to be dealing with three fingers with your left hand: one, two and three. We’re going to start with the first finger. We’re going to put that first finger on the second string, which is the second one from the bottom, so you count up: one, two. So, the second string, and then you’re going to take that first finger and put it behind the first fret, this is fret number one right here. So, sitting there on the second string, first fret, first finger. Now, we’re going to take the second finger, and place it on the fourth string, so counting up from the bottom: one, two, three, four, fourth string. And we’re going to go to the second fret, using the second finger, you’re going to place it right behind the fret. Then, we’re going to take the third finger, and place it on the fifth string, the fifth string is the second one from the top. So, here’s the sixth string, here’s the fifth string. Taking that third finger, placing it on the third fret, of the fifth string. Now, you got to really curve your fingers around, and use the tips of the fingers. Now, you’re going to strum only five strings of the chord. So, you’re going to strum, five through one. Strings one through five. And that is a C chord.
