That's a G, as in Garbo

Greta Garbo displaying her unique method of playing a G chord. (via The Silent Movie Blog, with a h/t to Amy Crehore!)

Is that the same 'G' shape as the one Jim Beloff talked about during the NAMM expo?

It makes it easier to transition from G to G7.

She has long fingers tho, I don't think i can do touch the tuners with my fingers that way.

Jim Beloff's is the "pinky" G. Greta's is the "ringfinger" G. Much more exotic, albeit less useful.

Hey, if I'm thinking about her fingers and what they could do, Gary, I'm not
thinking ukuleles.
