    Guys the easiest way to play G is to put one of your fingers on the third fret of the e string and strum eBGD strings i.e the bottom 4 strings (xx0003)...And for the F Chord:-
    3rd finger on the 3rd fret D string
    2nd finger on the 2nd fret G string
    1st finger on the 1st fret of the B and e strings...strum the bottom four strings i.e. eBDG (xx3211)
    ....Enjoy!!!!My guitar sir taught me these...

    no offence, but the G chord sounds crap without the bass, its not 2 hard 2 play neway, a bit of practice is all it takes :)

    Hey....Theres not much difference in the two with or without bass....and without bass it sounds sweeter...As for the practice thing-Hey dude?Know what....I can play the G chord using bass with ease....Its just that i wanted to post the new method as it is novel and uncommon.....Peace

    Lazy but nevertheless effective on acoustic guitar for beginners like me....Though i can play the G with bass comfortably,i prefer to use it without the bass on acoustic guitar...peace

    you know hendrix usd to do tht a lot..but the exact opposite ..he used to play only the G bass note and strum the rest of the strings ..

    and the open F chord you are sayin requires the same amount of effort to play as a barre F ..cuz ppl arent used to barrin only the E and B strings and it takes some practice to get the notes from the E and B strings to ring properly ..sure u can play it sloppy barrin only 1 string properly ..but u are better of learnin the bar form ..

    on the acoustic ..the easiet g and F chords will be the power chords ... and i mean the three finger power chords are the easiet to play .will sound chunky but will get the job done ...

    for g .this aint a power chord but


    its taken frm the bar chord but sounds cool .and al u gotta do is slide the E chord shape to 5 fret ..

    I cant play G,does that make me a fake n00bie?? :annoyed:

    @satch_attack: yeah, the best thing about using such chord shapes is that one can easily slide between different chords, which is very cool.

    agreed.....barre chords are the best.....
    well....earlier even i used to play F like that.....but then i practised a lot(for weeks)and finally got it right:banana:....playing the easier versions of the chords is a bad habbit....once u learn the easy way...u dont want to learn the real itz better to learn it the hard way, no matter how much time it takes....
    guys, why is this thread in "hindi guitar tabs-submit or request" forum???:confused:

    These pattern is good while doing rpgo..
    But while chording, the absence of bass strings matters..
    Any way for a beginner this is a good way to progress..
    Once one expertise on this pattern then he/she can gradually expertise on the six string pattern too.
