Hi, I just started learning Drop 2 chords a couple of weeks ago and i am finding it very difficult to move all my fingers at once while switching from one chord to another. I have been practicing it everyday a lot but still cannot seem to change from one chord to another quickly. Especially this one particular chord below where in i am unable to get all my fingers in a single movement. Please help.

G7

Firstly: never heard the term "drop 2 chord" before; I suspect it's something someone made up that means nothing.

Secondly: slow down. You can't do it because you don't have the coordination, slow it down to a point at which you can do it and get it right and comfortable there before trying to bring it up to performance speed.

Thirdly: that chord, whatever it is, cannot be a G7.

You might want to include notes on your lines, otherwise there's now way to tell what that chord is.


What do you mean by a drop 2 chord?

1. Don't double post. There's an edit button for a reason.
2. What you tabbed, if played like this:

e|-13-
B|-11-
G|-12-
D|-12-
A|----
E|----

is a Gm7 not a G7.

3. All you're really doing is playing a Gm7 with the fifth in the bass.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

I don't really see the point of that term. It's only making an inversion.
