    Thank you! Those of you who are not familiar with the key of C and need a little help with fingering I have a chart diagram that helps you with a chord on how it voiced. Here's the link:http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/chord_name.php And good luck!

    Your use of the word "bottom" is confusing. It looks (from the notes listed) like you mean "top", ie the top-sounding note of the chord. The "bottom" note of a chord is its bass note, not the one physically nearest the floor in a guitar chord. Your "bottom" string on a guitar is the thick 6th E string, not the thin E 1st.

    And your chord finder has enharmonic errors. That's not unusual, most online chord-finders make the same mistakes, because they have no way of determining the appropriate enharmonic.
    Eg, a C7 chord has a Bb in it, not an A#.
    So while it works in giving suitable chord names for keyed-in shapes, it often gives the wrong note names.
    I guess for the level of player who will be using that site, that's not a big issue - it will only come to bite them later (and maybe not severely!).

    Yea your JonR I got confused with saying bottom which I mean top. I just heard Eric Johnson say bottom string indicating the first string in one of his videos that's why. So no big deal here.

    Well, I guess even the greats can get things wrong... (I presume it made sense in context)

    The principle is we always work with pitch. "Low" strings are those producing a "low" sound. Same with frets: "low" frets are those near the nut; going "up" the neck is moving towards the bridge. It doesn't then matter how you hold the guitar. You could hang upside down, the strings and frets still have the same descriptions .
