Gm6 Guitar Chord Lesson

In this lesson we will be learning how to play the G Minor 6 guitar chord.

The Gm6 Guitar Chord is found by locating the 1, b3, 5, 6 positions (G, Bb, D and E) of the G Major Scale: G, A, B, C, D, E, and F#.

See the chord charts below for four different ways to play this chord along the neck of the guitar.  These are advanced chords that you may find difficult if you are a beginner.  There is barring and muting of strings involved.

Here is a key that will help you read the chart:

Guitar Chord Chart Key

Everything on the above chart should be self explanatory, except for the last three in the third column. They may need a bit of explaining. The O, or open symbol, simply means that you do not press down on any notes on that string. The X means you do not strum that particular string. The Barre symbol means you need to barre that particular fret. When you barre a fret you are pressing down on multiple strings at the same time with one finger.

Chord Playing Tips

Be sure that you are pressing down on the strings hard enough and play each string one at a time to make sure you have a nice clean sound. If any of the strings buzz or sound muted, then something is not right.
