    I’ll throw in my two cents–

    1. Most importantly— Go s – l – o – w at first, to learn it muscle-memory-wise…..

    2. Mechanically-speaking, anchor your index finger first. (To me, the “C” is one of those chords where my fingers just kind-of “lay-in-there” perfectly– once the index finger has landed).

    3. Pay attention to your pinky. Keep it “up” & out of trouble on this one….

    4. Get your transition reps in— lots of them. in 1 or 2 minute spurts.

    5. Work on another 2 or 3 chord transitions at the same time. That might some counter-productive, but planting that seed for “the next one” will pay benefits up ahead. Working and focusing too hard on just ONE transition that’s giving you trouble can freeze you up…… (believe me– I know).

    6. Have the confidence that it will very soon come easily to you!- no worries, have fun with it!

    Carry-on, all good.

    Long-winded two cents-
