its called a 2 because you push down on the second string (B string)

Its just another way of playing it. Idk if its actually called a G2, but it is a variation of a G major chord.

he's right by the way. there3 isnt really a theory base to that chord name. i think its just a heavier sounding g

oh ok, well I have a lot of music that has G2. So you could even play "G2" in a song if it was just a G chord if you thought it sounded better?

and what would

e 2
B 2
G 0
D 2
A 3
E x

or the same thing but with Em and the 2 at the high e and b string be called?

Usually you will see 9 instead of 2, as in G9 & G major9 and Gadd9. Typically you will only see 2 for a sus chord such as Gsus2


The chord you tabbed above is a Gmaj7#11 - not any type of 2nd/9th

Whats the song? Is it a tab or from a book? 'G2' isn't a very clear symbol for a chord but it mostly likely means Gsus2 which = the notes G A D. here are a couple of voicings...



e-----------------3----3-------10---
b-----------------3----3-------10---
g-----------------0----2-------12---
d--7--------------0----0-------12---
a--5--------------0----0-------10---
e--3--------------3----3-------------------

i use 320033 over the standard Gmajor all the time. i like how it sounds a lot more. it also transitions well with Cadd9.

Cadd9 is probably my favourite chord Lol I dunno why, it just has a really cool sound.

And the other G is just Gmajor just a different way of playing it, B and D are both notes in a G major chord so it's the same whether you fret the 2nd string or not..

As for G2 I've only ever heard of a Gsus2 but maybe it's some weird rare chord no one ever uses.. What's the song?

It's called a G2 because you put the 2nd of G in it, which would be A. I see G2 in alot of the church music I play. Not really anywhere else though.

320033 is a standard G major chord.
look dude thats straight from Andy Aledort so i think i trust his advice not yours. and its a rock chord used by bands like acdc and the who it is called a G2

^Tom is right - the 2 refers to the note , not the string number - You can play G2 without using the 2nd string at all

Right, that chord isn't Cadd9 like the other post says.

As for the standard 320003 and 320033 can both be considered 'standard' the both have the same 1, 3, 5 major chord pattern the only difference is an extra B or extra D.

I have no idea who Andy Aledort is but if you think

"its called a 2 because you push down on the second string (B string)"

then im afraid you have been misinformed.
