The notes in your chord are G - B - D. The name of your chord is Gmaj - and this is the most common way of playing that shape.


e|--3--| = G - First finger.
B|--3--| = D - First finger.
G|--4--| = B - Middle finger.
D|--5--| = G - Ring finger.
A|-----|
E|-----|

That's weird it should sound very right, your guitar is in tune correct?

It's just the top 4 notes of a G barre chord (E shape at the 3rd fret).

my name is graham. No its not...


Hang on, does the "no its not..." refer to your guitar not being in tune? If so, that may be contributing ever-so-slightly to the fact that the chord isn't sounding quite right....along with everything else you're playing

Dont play the open strings, theyre notes A and E. That would not sound very good.
Play the full barre form since it will sound the same.

Shut up.

It might sound better if you barre every string on the third fret with your index finger, and played it like this:

|--3--|
|--3--|
|--4--|
|--5--|
|--5--|
|--3--|

Otherwise, it's probrably just that your guitar is out of tune.
