    Wouldn't that make a Em7 chord?
    I know that it can be used as substitute in some places, but learning both would be handy.

    I learned something new from this thread. I have until now only played...

    Finding a Hawaiian song was a hard challenge, as I don't know a whole lot of Hawaiian artists.

    With a little help from Google I discovered Kui Lee, and decided to give this song a shot. I am...

    If you are not allready doing it, I would suggest using movable chord shapes rather than those closest to the headstock.

    Though Gm7 is usually easiest to play 1-1-2-0, quickly after Fm7 (3-1-3-1)...

    Where in Denmark do you live?
    If you are in CPH one day, I can recommend checking out Akustiken. I am not affiliated in any way, I just like their showroom in the back of the store. They have a...

    Yeah, the hard part is that you often have to play the correct inversion of the correct chord to have the melody note in it. It can be a struggle when you need to work up the neck. I always have a...

    Either it is strung linear or wrong.
    If it is strung wrong, it is probably strung with cheap strings.
    Switching strings have have already been on is tricky.

    The first question is why you pluck the g string on the "1" beat.
    What note is it fretted at?
    Is it part of the melody as in a chord melody arrangement, or just to mix up the strumming?

    If you...

    I have a bad habit of changing strings top rarely. Especially on my guitar that I seldom play. I can leave them on for years, until I can hang it on the wall for a week, pick it down, and it is still...

    I sure don't hope that in-tensioned strings deteriorate over a few years lying in a drawer.
    I would hate not to be able to have a spare set ready, and I usually use my strings for way too long.

    This song should fit the theme:
