OK I started like 2 months ago, practicing on & off.
For the last 4-5 days I was doing the Gmajor to Cmajor thing using 2,3,4 fingers and basically had no progress. I couldn't do it smoothly at 60bpm. Seriously I'm wondering if my pinky is the weakest in the world, coz I see many beginners nailing this simple changing with no effort.

Should I stop? If not, can you give me some suggestions?

using 2,3,4 fingers


Use fingers 1, 2, 4

WOW That's quite a forum, 4 replies after 30 minutes, I'm impressed.

I don't understand what the first 2 said though.

I thought people used 3,2,4 for the G? Is that true? And I can't press the high E down at the tip of my pinky. It's always off.

I always use 1,2 and 3 for C and G major.


Same here, I think that's standard. TS, you should really try to teach yourself to do the same, IMO. Particularly because your pinky will naturally be weaker than the other fingers; this makes your fingering far more difficult.

Just practice with a metronome until you can do it smoothly, just keep practicing and everything will be fine. I usually play those chords like this (fingers, not frets):
G:
e-4-
B-3-
G---
D---
A-1-
E-2-

C:
e-open--
B-1------
G-open--
D-2------
A-3------
E---------
Good luck!

i use fingers 1,2,3 for both C and G as well. the pinky is naturally weaker then your other fingers. you might want to try using fingers 1,2,3 instead and see if its easier.

If you use 3,2,4 for the G, then you have the index finger available for the Gsus chord. It's awkward at first, and your pinky is weak, but keep practicing the technique and you WILL nail it. It will after time become easy for you.
