Subject: RE: Beginner guitar - G chord fingering
So it's the 2-3-4 then! I'm so glad I asked because I'm always sceptical about when somebody says do it different from the way the books tell you.

But it's a relief that so many of you real players give a generally similar response - I can now practice with greater commitment instead of feeling I am doing something wrong!

At present, it feels a little awkward only in that my pinky is a bit late getting down but even I have learnt that I can cheat by playing (approximately) five strings for the first strum. And I know it will become easier if I practice.......

Thanks for all the help.

Cheers, Terry
