I was just wondering what chord this is. I know it's a C of some kind, I'm just not sure what that G in the bottom does to it

It's just a C major chord. C E G are the notes in a C major. Instead of having the 3rd on top you have the 5th. Brightens the chord a little.

its just a c....C/G if you want to call it. You can add the 3 on either E string and its still a Cmajor chord, just with an added bass or high note.

Well, let's use a little theory and find out what you have there.

C D E F G A B

A major chord is going to use R, 3, 5. Which notes are these? Use the handy key I provided above.

You should've gotten C, E and G. Your added G on the first string is really nothing more than another voicing for C major. You've just added another G, so instead of having the single G on the open 3rd string, now we have a doubled G. Pretty cool, eh?

That's pretty much the same thing as your standard C chord except you move the G up an octave.
