  • Bluegrass G chord

    Nearing the beginning of my third time round TAC, finally got the bluegrass G chord back smoothly. Good to have a handle on it again!

    That’s a fantastic win @Guerra6007 . I wasn’t even aware there was a bluegrass G chord. So much to still learn …

    Tony favors the G chord that I (and others) call the bluegrass G chord, with the B string and the high E fretted at the third fret.

      Ah, now I get it. I never knew it was called the bluegrass G chord (I’m a slow learner sometimes – haha). Thanks for clarifying that @Guerra6007 !

    I use this alot and I call it the lazy g chord. You typically fret the g on the low E and mute the A string. Does t sound too much different. Usually both the high e and bstrings are played at the third fret as usual. Sometimes its even played by just fretting the 3rd fret on the e strings using two fingers instead of 3. But basically the blue grass g just mutes the A string.
