Its just a harmony with a root, 6th and octave
Gibson SG Standard
Ibanez S2170FB
Peavey JSX
Marshall 1960A
It's either an Em/G (Em 1st inversion), or you could call it a G6.

Honestly, I've always found that context is necessary to properly name a chord like this.
What is the Bass doing? Keyboards? Other Guitars?
Whether they're playing a G or Em (or something else entirely) makes a huge difference on how to label this chord...

If the other harmony is playing a G, we have a G6.
If the other harmony is playing an Em, we have an Em (1st inversion).
If the other harmony is playing a C, we have a C (2nd inversion, obviously with no Root).
If the other harmony is playing an Am, we have an Am7.

BTW, that's chord from Sweet Home Alabama main riff

I don't know which tab you're looking at but that chord is in no version of Sweet Home Alabama I've ever seen or hear...
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.
