Build My Life Guitar Chords

If you’ve played any worship guitar, then you should be familiar with these chords. You can cheat the C chord by playing a Cadd9 (Like your G chord, but your first and second fingers move down a string). The G/B – “G over B” chord might look like trouble, but it’s just your E minor 7 chord without the low E string and without your middle finger.

G guitar chord - g major
G/B guitar chord - g major

(The above is a G major chord. To play a G/ B just play a G major chord without the lowest string)
