View this chord in: G-Tuning (DGBE)D-Tuning (ADF#B)Slack-Key Tuning (GCEG)
To play Emaj7 we put our index finger on the first fret of the G string. Next the middle finger goes on the second fret of the A string and finally the ring finger presses down on the third fret of the C string. This stretch of the three fingers is a little on the uncomfortable side when you first play it, with time it will become more natural, and your hand will relax more. It helps to keep the top of your fingers straight up, but it is not easy!
