How to Play the G, C, and E Minor Chords
I will teach first to play the simple G chord. This is the standard tuning of a guitar.

I will show you what strings are which.

The E, B, G, D, A, and other E are notes open to the strings.

If you were to pick the string open, this is the note it is considered.
E-1
B-2
G-3
D-4
A-5
E-6
E--3
B---
G---
D---
A--2
E--3
When you see numbers on the strings, that is what fret to put your fingers on.

There is another way to play the G chord.
E--3
B--3
G---
D---
A--2
E--3
All you need to do is add a finger to the second string on the third fret.

Now I will show you how to play the C chord.
E---
B--1
G---
D--2
A--3
E---
There is no other way to play this chord.

Now all that is left is the E minor chord. This only requires two fingers.
E---
B---
G---
D--2
A--2
E---
Now you know the G, C and the E minor chords.
