Tip: One Finger Chord Primer Part 8

Welcome back to the One Finger Guitar Chord Primer. In this lesson we’ll learn another two-finger chord shape.

Here’s the new two-finger shape:

G Chord

Play this on strings 1 to 3, on any fret. In fact, you can use most of the shapes in the One Finger series on any starting fret.

Form the new shape by first making the one-finger foundation shape on strings 1-4, any fret. Then, bring in finger two directly onto string 3, one fret up from the first finger. Don’t let finger two touch any strings besides string 3.

This lesson will have to end here. Practice the shapes and chord progressions in the previous lessons of this series. As always, take the time to experiment.
