Does a yellow line mean hold down all the strings with one finger? I'm trying to learn G/B and don't see how I can hold down all the strings in the diagram with one hand.

Hi goodps!

I don't now the diagram that you're talking about, but G/B just means to play a G chord with a B note in the bass ( or as the lowest note). It's commonly used in a chord progression to provide movement in the bass. For example: C - G/B - Am - G/B etc...

That's my 2 cents. Hope it helps...

Good luck!

Thanks, that helps. I'm still curious about a yellow line across all the strings. Does it mean hold down all the strings with one finger?

I'm no talking about reading music. I'm referring to the chord diagrams on this site that have a yellow line across all six strings (for example the 1st variation on B Major). If you don't have a helpful comment, please refrain from replying. I'm sure you have better ways to spend your time.

Hello again, goodps!

I saw the yellow line you referred to in your original post for a G/B chord in the 'guitar chords' calculator thingy. It does mean to hold down all the strings with one finger...but I really have to add that, even though the chord thingy is technically correct...that is one GOD AWFUL FINGERING for that particular chord! A simpler way to play it would be to put your 1st finger at the 2nd fret on the 5th string; put your 3rd finger at the 3rd fret on the 2nd string; put your pinky at the 3rd fret on the 1st string. Play the chord from the 5h string through the 1st. The 4th & 3rd strings are left open (don't play the 6th string at all!). Voila! Fairly EZ fingering for a G/B!

Good luck!
