That 'big G' is also called the 'bluegrass G' because EVERY bluegrasser uses that for a G chord. Including myself although I'm not even a bluegrasser. ;)

It's pretty and more full. Like the C/G that you can play instead of the C. It's got a little more arse to it.

Some guitars, a ukulele and an amp.

That C/G is a really useful chord for alternating bass lines in fingerstyle or flatpicking.

Yeah, the big G is my go-to G as well. But lazy as I am, in the end I mostly use the one that the least trouble to get to/from. But default it'd be the big one.

The C/G is also great for actual acoustic rock, it's got a really nice fatness to it. Like it a lot.


You're thinking of Big G.
Got ya.

Don't worry; I'm going senile, too!  ;D
That's very reassuring. Although...

Wait...

What where we talking about...?

Ah yes, trout fishing. Rright.

Errrr...
