How to Play G Minor on the Guitar (Free Video Lesson)

If you're a beginner guitarist, playing a G Minor chord can be a challenge, especially if you are trying to barre the whole chord. It took me a long time to get comfortable with using my index finger to press down across all of the strings, so this is definitely not a basic chord to learn.

Instead, I suggest you try a partial barre G Minor. This partial chord shape is exactly the same as F Minor except that you form the chord on the 3rd fret.

How to Play G Minor on the Guitar:
  • Place Your Left Index Finger between Strings 3 and 1 on the 3rd Fret - this is a Partial Barre Chord Form
  • Place Your Left Ring Finger on the 4th String, 5th Fret
  • Strings 6 and 5 are not used in this G Minor Chord

Try this version out and see if you can play each note cleanly on the guitar. Once you become comfortable with the partial barre G Minor, see if you can play a full barre chord of G Minor.
