k. sometimes when i get the chords for songs it will be in an alternate tuning, well say half step down, then it will say to play for example a G Chord. Would i just play the shape for G


Eb:3
Bb:0
Gb:0
Db:0
Ab:2
E:b3

or an would actually be a G?

Eb:4
Bb:4
Gb:5
Db:6
Ab:6
Eb:4

In most cases, but not always, you'd play it as if you were in standard. Even sheet music will be written in a different key to make up for down tuning.

Would be a Gb, since your'e playing the same shape at the same spot, but your guitar is a half step down.

Eb:3
Bb:3
Gb:4
Db:5
Ab:5
Eb:3
Would be also be a Gb, and

Eb:4
Bb:4
Gb:5
Db:6
Ab:6
Eb:4
Would indeed be a G major chord.

I agree with Macabre_Turtle's interpretation but you'll hear if it sounds wrong you'll know the solution to your problem.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
