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.
