hey im trying to play Gay Eskimo By corky and the juice pigs but its all chords and to be frank i dont have a clue what to do with chords EG: how would you play this:

e ---|---|---|---|---|
B -x-|---|---|---|---|
G ---|---|---|---|---|
D ---|-x-|---|---|---|
A ---|---|-x-|---|---|
E ---|---|-o-|---|---|
#2
im pretty sure thats a C chord. i dunno tho, i never really looked up tabs for my chords, and im a big fan of barre chords, buts thats probably a c chord


but your fingers where the Xs are.
#3
that's a C. Strum all of the strings, and put your fingers on the X's. I'm not really familiar with the song, is it just C all the way through?
#6
e ---|---|---|---|---|
B -x-|---|---|---|---|
G ---|---|---|---|---|
D ---|-x-|---|---|---|
A ---|---|-x-|---|---|
E ---|---|-o-|---|---|
That's a C chord.

Index finger on the 1st fret, 2nd string.
Middle finger on the 2nd fret, 4th string.
Ring ringer on the 3rd fret, 5th string.

Do not play the top string. You can mute it by using your thumb.

how can you tell its Eg: 2nd fret because it only shows 5 frets? and there is like 20 odd frets ?
#9
no if you play the low E its still a C chord

C-E-G make a C chord

so I suppose its just an inversion
#10
It is implicit; if it doesn't indicate the fret numbers, you can safely assume the area to the left of the 'vertical line' is the first fret.

For instance, for the C#m, the diagram indicates, you are starting at the 4th fret

Also note

e ---|---|---|---|---|
B -x-|---|---|---|---|
G ---|---|---|---|---|
D ---|-x-|---|---|---|
A ---|---|-x-|---|---|
E ---|---|-o-|---|---|
are equivalent.

e 0
B 1
G 0
D 2
A 3
E x
In the second the diagram, the numbers indicate the fret numbers.
