Movable G Chord Shapes

by Pete · 1 comment

Below are three of the comon G chords that I use.

Starting with G Major. This one is a bar chord, and one of the easier bar chords. The root of this shape can be found on the second string (E string). Another version (for G only) of this chord can be with an open fourth string(G string).

The second shape we have here is the G Minor. This chord also has the root on the second string. Remember this and you will know what you’re playing up and down the fretboard.

The final chord shape is the G7 Chord. With this chord, the root is found on the open 4th string. Just remember when you move this up the fretboard, you will have to use your index finger.

Move all three chords up two frets and you will find the A alternatives.
