Hi Damian,


It's completely normal.

Keep practising, it took me ages to train my fingers to go to the right place. Just keep practising as slowly as you need to, slow enough that when you put your fingers to the guitar they only go to the correct place (not put your fingers on and readjust)...and eventually they will go to the right place quicker and quicker.

However I do recommend learning other basic chords at the same time as the C chord, like practising a progression. I started with C, G, D, E. Just practise carefully and don't give up.

Make sure you are using your fingertips to press down the strings as well.
