This is rhythmNpik here, i'm new to the house, anyway i've got an answer but it's not the only answer, here we go .....
As i know it, the chord is C with a G base, some purest's won't play the optional G base to a C chord unless it's
Written in the score and they would dud out the the E string, i've always used the optional G base note playing the C chord cos'
I'm not a purest, i just like the tone of it and it doesn't take away from any song i know of, anyway best of luck in all you do.
a purest is not a purest unless the purest is a purest ...... lolololol '''''' who said that ???? not me !!!! then who ????? i dunno !!!!
