In this lesson, we’ll learn 3 new chords: G, G7, and GM7. Some beginners find the G chord hard to form, so if you find it difficult, realize you’re not the only one.

The G chord is formed like this:

  • Place your 3rd finger on the 3rd fret of the low E string
  • Place your 2nd finger on the 2nd fret of the A string
  • Leave the D, G, and B strings open
  • Place your 4th finger on the 3rd fret of the high E string
