The Chord of G Major

g-major

The G Chord has a slightly differently look then the F or C chords, mostly because it is formed in ‘reverse’, with the first and second fingers going across the neck, and the third finger held back.

Here’s how it’s formed:

  • Index finger behind the 2nd fret on the 5th string (A)
  • Middle finger just behind the 3rd fret on the bottom string (E)
  • Ring finger just behind the third finger on the 1st string (E)
  • Note: You must arch your index and middle fingers to avoid brushing the adjacent strings
