I've seen a couple of versions of how to play it at the 5th fret,


7
5

... but also the slightly different:


7
5
5
5
x

... is either OK?

Also, another variation is:


0
0
0
2
3
x
... but isn't that the same as a Cmaj7 chord or is there a relationship?

I'm looking to use these as substitue chords for a piece in the 'key of G'.

Thanks.

The first two are ok. The only difference is that the second includes an A note, and you're doing an A chord. The third one is a C maj 7, and just shares an E note with the chord you're looking for.
Hope that helps

Look up "every chord" on tabs and you should find what you are looking for to be clarified on.

that is an Am9 as far as i know, you could play it an octave lower if needed

EDIT:

e|-x
B|-x
G|-4
D|-5
A|-X
E|-5

I guess that would be it an octave lower..

The second and third ones would only really be used in jazz, since they have no roots. The other one is fine for rock purposes.

the second one i would call a CM7, mainly because i have a song that uses that exact fingering and thats how its used
