Depends. There are a couple of songs my praise bands have done that have a G-C2-D4 progression. For those I use the 320033, x32033, xx0233 progression (when I play on an acoustic).
When I’m on electric, 355433, or 355xxx. Sometimes if I’m after something different, xx9787 or x10,12,12,12x or maybe x10,9,7,8,7. There are other moveable/inversions that I don’t have down as well. But you get the idea.
The best thing one of my guitar instructors ever gave me was the idea that we should spell the chords, then figure out where those notes are on the fret board. Years later, I’m still not great at it, but I try to do it more and more.
The Em is actually an Em7 with the D on the second string...
I learned the "320033" form as "bluegrass G"....I play that most of the time...it depends on the progression, chord extensions, etc...
Also xx9787...a D shape G chord at 7th fret is a valuable fingering...
This is good G chord stuff...
but I still can't find the elusive 'H' chord
Count me in the both category. I use both depending on the flavor I'm looking for.
It's a silent H
I played a low H at Jefferton bass fest last year. It was totally wizzed out.
320033 - the 'Clapton' G chord.
They know how to in Germany.............
Here you go:
x13331 The German notation for Bb is H
I always thought adding the second D note to a G chord would make it a G5, but I suppose you'd need to dampen the B note for that to be technically correct. Is that right?
Chord voicing is based on what sound and what chord progression is called for, imho. There are progressions in which one or the other of the voicing sin the OP are either called for or not advisable due to movement to and from the other chords in th eprogression. Fwiw, I find that many players, especially younger players, who use the 3,2,0,0,3,3 form play a C+9 when they go to the IV chord...and a C+9 is not a C chord. They do this because going to the first position C chord is more troublesome. There are two ways to 8nger 3,2,0,0,0,3; and one way facilitates the movement to the IV and V chords whereas the other method calls for a wholesale shift of the hand position. and....to play the rhythm to say ‘Sloop John B’ or to fake Keith Richards while in standard tuning, there is only one way to play 3,2,0,0,0,3: and that would be with the low G fingered with the ring finger.
There are many ways to play a G chord. As for the first position G, here is another one.....3,2,0,4,3,x.
while you're all G jangling away ..I'll just sit on this for a bit..3xxx.... says the bass player...
German notation for B is H.
German notation for Bb is B.
You're right about G5:
If you're only playing the notes G and D, it would be G5, but as long as there is a B somewhere it's G major.
What the OP showed are different voicings of G that are both equally valid. The first voicing (which I would suggest playing without the index finger) has the extra major third, so it sounds different. I use both.
I play it 000000
Except this time...
I almost always add the B3 (D) note. It sounds good, and makes it easy to pivot to the C9, which I often play in place of a C.
B for me
Nobody mentioned the A shape G at the 10th fret. I use that one too.
3x0033 for me usually. But depends if I wanna do tricks with the G to Gsus4 move. Then 3x0003 works for adding 3x0013.

I thought this was going to be a joke.
