OK, so one last chord for you from open chords. There's many more open chords, but this will get you pretty far. This is called G with B in the bass. So how is that written? G slash B. Alright, so it is just like what I said. It is G, the chord G, but instead of the note G being in the bass, it is B. Note B. It is just a subtle different sound. We can play it. It is very simple actually. We are going to take your first finger and put it on the fifth string, second fret. Then you are going to take your ring finger and put that on the second string, third fret. That's all there is to it, except when you strum, you have to be careful and only hit these inside ones, right? What do I mean by that, I mean the fifth string, the fourth string, the third string, the second string. Don't want to hit anything else other than that. You can accomplish that a couple of ways. You can just aim for those strings. Alright? You can also mute out the first string a little bit. You can use sort of the edge of your first finger here. Just sort of, just mute it out. Now you can't hear that first string. So, G with B in the bass.
