Or mute the strings in between, play it like this:

E 10
B 8
G x
D x
A 10

Use your pinky on the E, ring on the B, put your middle down lightly to mute G and D and use your index finger on A.
#6
Pluck the notes simultaneously with your fingers, or mute the strings you aren't using with the sides of your fretting hand fingers.
#7
sure it is, G5
(responding to the guy who said its not a chord)

Yeah, it's D G G, making it a G open chord.

Crap, somebody answered that.

That's a terrible hand position you're describing.

Yeah, good catch, that's not what I meant to say, I saw it wrong in my mind.

Yes, it is.

EDIT: Nobody said it's G Major.

anything thats more than one note at once is a chord, BUDDY.


ignorant -_-

a chord is three or more DIFFERENT notes.

and as to help the dude out in the first place... try finger pickin it (with your thumb hitting the A string.. and your pointers the higher strings)

umm no its not, BUDDY. you need three notes for it to be a chord that has two. power chords arent actually chords there intervals.

ok, lets settle this knobbish dispute.
its not a triad, we know that.
its the root, the dominant, and the octave.
call it a chord, dont call it a chord, i dont give a crap, but it musically exists, its common, and it works.
let it go.
#23
okay so mute the notes in between with my free fingers?
ive wondered about this for a while
the chord i mentioned was in cliffs of dover

try fingerpicking it... with your thumb hitting the a string and your pointers plucking the higher strings.. that might be less akward really
