Chords in G Major
This is our second chord scale [first: C Major]. All of the chords you find on this page are found within the first position scale. Get these chords in the hands. We have options for which G fingering to use [2-1-3, 3-2-4, 2-1-3-4].
These are all triads, save the penultimate Dominant chord. The diminished chord is included [the diminished triad is inside the V7]. For chord scale strumming, try both [first time, D7, 2nd time F#o].
Numbers in brackets are optional tones. Also, some of these chords are technically slash chords. Slash chords have a different tone in the bass than the root. In this set, if C has the 3 fret on the 6 string, the chord is called C/G [and will often actually be called this]. For D, the bass tone shown is an A, yet we rarely see it written as a D/A [yet, we typically let this open string ring for D]. The F#o also has an A ringing in the bass, yet we rarely see F#o/A in popular music [or even F#o for that matter].
