No, they are both G/B.
The note after the slash simply refers to the bass-note. So G/B means that the lowest note played should be a B.
Check it yourself. What notes are in a G/B chord and what notes are played within the given shapes?

 thanks neph, but third fret up on B string isn.t b  or do you mean it can still be played that way as in the rock G,where that note is held down also .  ta for taking time out to help .  i understand the basics of slash chords first letter, chord second, the bass note :)

yes. third fret b string is like the "rock G". Important is to mute the high e-string here since that note is not part of Gmaj!
the fingering x-2-0-0-3-x means B-D-G-d which is a proper Gmaj, but since the B is in the bass it's called G/B.
If you like you could still play x-2-0-0-3-3 which is even more like the "rock" version, just has an additional high g but it's still G/B

Good day Justin and everyone else!

Can someone tell me what is the best technique to do the

D  d/C#  bm  progression that you hear in

Feist's  "1234"

and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes  "Janglin"

for some reason this  slash chore progression is especially tough.

Thanks

Hi Chi,

I just tried playing a normal open D and stretching my pinky up to play the C# on the A string and that didn't seem too grim.

Otherwise knock yourself out here http://www.guitarchords247.com/guitar/770.html

Good luck :)
