Thank you for your take on it! I will try it out tonight for funCertainly no expert but picked up a guitar to try it. To my ear let my ring finger on the second string rest against the first string to deaden it, then on the upstroke just hit the bottom 3 or 4 strings, not allowing the first string to sound. Hope that helps?
Found I personally liked the sound of the chord just prior to G leaving the ring finger and using the pointer and middle as if the G chord but just dropped to 5 and 4 strings, but that's less of a minor sounding chord than just using the middle finger on the 4string.
You'll get it how you want, just gotta keep working at it.
