The Bluegrass "G" Chord

An October 2006 "Acoustic Rock" magazine article explains it this way: "The "G5" chord ... [shown below], commonly called the Bluegrass "G," has become the standard G formation used by nearly every bluegrass guitarist today. It has a nice ringing sound that cuts through the louder mandolin, fiddle, and banjo in a bluegrass band." A lot of acoustic rockers have borrowed this great sounding first position open-string chord.
