Another version of the G chord with a little different sound is the following:

  • first (index) finger on string 5 – fret 2
  • second (middle) finger on string 6 – fret 3
  • third (ring) finger on string 2 – fret 3
  • fourth (pinky) finger on string 1 – fret 3

In this case the only difference is that the third finger is pressing the string 2 on fret 3. This version can be used along the first one of the chord for changing the sound of long strumming by alternating between these two forms.
