Now let's explore some other chords within our open position major scale.
What other open chords do we have that we haven't tried yet? There's the E minor chord, which of course has the root note on the low E string.
We have our F chord made easy. For this chord we have our root note on the D string, which is a fretted note, but it's the same concept going down the scale.
We of course have our G major, too. But that one is a little more tricky, because as you notice while you're holding down the chord, we're fretting our root note (in the 3rd fret of the low E string) with our middle finger, and when we play the scale we fret that note with our ring finger.
So if you want to use our bass note trick with the G major chord, you'll have to remember to fret that note with your middle finger, once you get there.
