How do I play a G5 chord on guitar?
Fret the 6th string on the third fret, and 2nd string on the third fret.
A G5 chord can be played on the guitar (acoustic or electric) by fretting two notes and playing the rest of the strings open. Fret both notes at the 3rd fret, on the 6th and 2nd strings. Mute the high E.
