Key of C
Glenn Weiser

                   C                                     F                                      G7

1. Warm-up exercise, down-strums only: 4/4 / C / F / G7 / C / C / G7 / F / C //

2. The “short” F chord - Place your index finger flat over first two strings on the first fret, with the fingertip touching the third string. Then arch your left wrist downwards and forwards so that the distal knuckle (the one closest to the fingertip) of the index finger bends in, firmly pressing the first two strings down onto the fretboard. The short F chord is more dependent on wrist positioning than the other open chords.

 3. Speed Changing: C ® F, C ® G7, G7 ® C.
