When I started, I was taught this position, which I assume is the standard: 3 - G 0 - B 0 - G 0 - D 2 - B 3 - G The later I heard about an alternative way: 3 - G 3 - D 0 - G 0 - D 2 - B 3 - G Now I find myself tending to play it the second way. I'm not sure whether my hand feels more comfortable, or sub-conciously I prefer the sound or it's just a habit. Another point is you can also mute the A string and play it over a major or minor. Which method do you prefer, or is it something completely different? (FYI I'm pretty much self taught and know little theory).
