    I’m in the second week of my first week of the thirty day challenge. Guess its going to take about 45 days for me to finish the 30 day challenge. Anyway, why are we taught the G major chord while fretting the B string?

    @Notn2bars Welcome to the TAC community!

    That’s what they refer to as the bluegrass G chord. It’s just another way of making a G chord

    Hi @Notn2bars : It is a variation. It helped me open my mind to see how many possibilities there are. It is not mandatory but rather an option. The three finger G chord is like a baked potato, solid staple, but as I started to add other tonal flavors with different shapes it was like I found Mashed potatoes and hash browns and poutine, and potato salad and twice baked potatoes, french fries, curly fries, tater tots and etc. Okay… now I am hungry.
