Wouldn't it be a G on the 3rd fret high E string? If you barre the 3rd?

Not sure what you're asking. Yes, the third fret on the high E string is a G note. I'm no musical theory guru, but one note changes the chord.

Em

E|-----3--------
B|-----5--------
G|-----4---------
D|-----5---------
A|---------------
E|---------------

Cmaj7

E|-----3--------
B|-----5--------
G|-----4---------
D|-----5---------
A|-----3---------
E|---------------

Gmaj7 in the 3rd position would be

E|--------------
B|-----3--------
G|-----4---------
D|-----4---------
A|---------------
E|-----3----------

Here's a pretty passionate version complete with some Malmsteen Garcia shredding on the solo.

Bodiddley, your Em chord form is used exclusively by Jerry on every pass. Good ear...

To make it really interesting:

This triad we have been discussing here

E ----------------
B -------5--------
G -------4--------
D -------5--------
A -----------------
E -----------------

Root it with E = Em
Root it with C = Cmaj7
Root it with A = A9
Root it with D = Dsus6/9 (if it exists)
Root it with G = G6
Root it with C# = C#m7-5
:D
There are only two mantras. Yum and yuk. Mine's yum.

was at this show...I think this is the show that Dylan did Mr tambourine man much to the shock of the rest of the band (was never rehearsed or on the tour play list) .....


also, maybe it is the shadow and camera angle, but during jerrys solo look at the 2 humbuckers, they dont look like super 2's!

Not to beat a dead horse here but I thought you agreed a couple posts back that to be an Em you would play the high E string open. I'm getting cornfused.

:D I live in a constant state of confusion.

Going back, what I posted was:

Usually, when I play that voicing of a minor chord I also include the high E string. For an Em, it would be:

E|-----3--------
B|-----5--------
G|-----4---------
D|-----5---------
A|---------------
E|---------------

...So I think the idea of the high E being open was your own idea. Having said that, it certainly wouldn't be in any way wrong to have that high E played open.
