THIS SECTION IS FOR THE GUITARIST THAT HAS PROGRESSED IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF CHORDS BEYOND THE OPEN STRING CHORDS.

FIVE DIFFERENT POSITIONS OF THE G CHORD WILL BE GIVEN. OBJECTIVE IS TO BE ABLE TO MOVE FROM EACH POSITION TO THE NEXT POSITION WITH ONLY ONE BEAT ON EACH CHORD.

Remember the various 9 steps on the basic chords. These are treated in the same way. The difference is that the diagrams are not intended for beginners, however I would not discourage a beginner from trying to make these chords.

Four Positions of the G chord.

It should be noted that there are no full barre chords here. Elimination of the grand barre allows the chords to be played much faster. Moving from one position to the next within seconds.

If you like the barre, by all means use same.

I need to thank two people who helped with two items in this lesson page. Pedro Lima caught one error in the fingering of the second G chord. Tom Moese, a student of mine, brought to my attention the last G chord I inserted.
