Hi All

I am fairly new to the uke and guitar and have an observation/question about the G chord when I am playing in the C G Am F chord progression.

I understand the G chord is normally fingered with the index on the 3rd string and the middle finger on the 1st string, but inside this progression it seems to make a little more sense to me to reverse the index and middle finger. The advantages I see are that I only need to move my middle finger one string over if I am trying to play the Am chord. It also seems easier to move to the F chord since I don't need to reverse my index and middle finger.

What I am wondering is this alternate fingering going to lead me down the path to some bad habits or does this seem like a reasonable thing to keep?

Thanks

I think the question is about uke chords. I normally finger the G the same as a D on the guitar. Index on the first string and middle on the third.
