"A C/G chord is just a C major chord with an added low G bass note, so any C major chord shape will do?"

How to do a 513 chord on a gdg cbg?

Trying to figure out how to play Jack Elliotts version of cocaine blues. Totally different song than the Johnny Cash one. Anyway. C/G is the most used chord and I found a site saying that's 513/gce triad chord. Not sure how to accomplish that on my GDG cbg. Can't remember the other chords in that song but if anyone can help with that that would be awesome too.

I like the sound, the old timey look and how primitive they are. Plus I love the blues. CBGs and the blues go hand and hand.
