its called a 2 because you push down on the second string (B string)

Its just another way of playing it. Idk if its actually called a G2, but it is a variation of a G major chord.

I honestly prefer this chord to the normal G maj
Guild GAD-40C w/ PWM pickup
Martin 000-16GT
Washburn D10s-12
Fender Jimmie Vaughan Strat
Schecter C-1+ (For SALE!)
Epiphone G-400 Ltd. w/ EMG's

oh ok, well I have a lot of music that has G2. So you could even play "G2" in a song if it was just a G chord if you thought it sounded better?

and what would

e 2
B 2
G 0
D 2
A 3
E x

or the same thing but with Em and the 2 at the high e and b string be called?

Usually you will see 9 instead of 2, as in G9 & G major9 and Gadd9. Typically you will only see 2 for a sus chord such as Gsus2


The chord you tabbed above is a Gmaj7#11 - not any type of 2nd/9th
#8
oh yeah thats what I was asking. so how do you play a G2 then.. I have music that says G2 on it.
#9
Whats the song? Is it a tab or from a book? 'G2' isn't a very clear symbol for a chord but it mostly likely means Gsus2 which = the notes G A D. here are a couple of voicings...



e-----------------3----3-------10---
b-----------------3----3-------10---
g-----------------0----2-------12---
d--7--------------0----0-------12---
a--5--------------0----0-------10---
e--3--------------3----3-------------------

I'm wondering if they don't mean:

320033

thats called Cadd9
the other that you describe is Em7
#13
i use 320033 over the standard Gmajor all the time. i like how it sounds a lot more. it also transitions well with Cadd9.
#14
Cadd9 is probably my favourite chord Lol I dunno why, it just has a really cool sound.

And the other G is just Gmajor just a different way of playing it, B and D are both notes in a G major chord so it's the same whether you fret the 2nd string or not..

As for G2 I've only ever heard of a Gsus2 but maybe it's some weird rare chord no one ever uses.. What's the song?
#15
It's called a G2 because you put the 2nd of G in it, which would be A. I see G2 in alot of the church music I play. Not really anywhere else though.
Gear:

Fender Mexi Fat Strat
2005 Taylor 614ce


Fender MIM J-Bass Fretless

do you mean 320033 ? 320022 sounds like complete ****.

^Tom is right - the 2 refers to the note , not the string number - You can play G2 without using the 2nd string at all

Right, that chord isn't Cadd9 like the other post says.
#26
As for the standard 320003 and 320033 can both be considered 'standard' the both have the same 1, 3, 5 major chord pattern the only difference is an extra B or extra D.

I have no idea who Andy Aledort is but if you think

"its called a 2 because you push down on the second string (B string)"

then im afraid you have been misinformed.
