Many songs use what musicians call “Slash” Chords. No, this isn’t named after Slash, it’s a reference to the combination of chords used to make one single chord. For instance, a C/G is a chord that has C qualities but with a G in the bass.
Understanding how to read these chords is simple – the letter to the left of the slash is the type of chord – so in this case it is “C” chord (aka a C major chord). The note to the right of the slash is the bass note in the chord – a “G” in this circumstance. So, a C/G chord is a C major chord with the note G in the bass. If you study the chord in part three, you can clearly see the C major chord, with the G on the third fret of the sixth string also being fretted in the bass.
What I love about these chords is they all sound great together and are fairly easy to play! Here are a few more to jam on.
For great examples of these type of chords in action check out Wonderwall by Oasis.
