“Slash” Chords

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.

slashchordcgNotice that the dots are all numbered.  1 is index finger.  2 is middle.  3 is ring.  And 4 is pinky. 🙂

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.
