My best guess is the classic clawhammer or crowfoot G.

That chord sounds adventurous and not disharmonic at all.

Looks like a G7th with the the high D added on string 2. String 5, A string is muted.

From low to high, looks like G, Eb, Db, G

If it's not just a fake grab, it could be an Eb7 (3rd, root, b7, 3rd)

Jim,
I'm sure Dwight Yoakum never even heard of that chord! Whoa!

Never heard of Eb7? I'd give him more credit than that... it's just a standard dominant chord.

Just give me a good old three chord country song, with no Eb7th! Very Happy

I've listened to a lot of Dwight Yoakam's music, Erv, and I don't think there are many Eb7ths in there anywhere!

Methinks he's just posing... Although, I did see him live just a few weeks ago, and he's a very tasty guitar player.

Probably, like a lotta people, if he wants an Eb chord, he'll just use a capo and play in D.

Saw Daryle Singletary live recently as well, and he used a capo often. And, when there was a key change mid-song, he just reached down and slid the capo up a fret or two!

Well if Daryl was contributing legitimate rhythm guitar (rather than just using his guitar as a prop) it would be perfectly correct and for him to use a capo. That's the way country rhythm has been played for many years, particularly on music with a feel like Daryl's. Mostly out of a G or D open position. It's just as correct as playing bar chords for swing, etc. For example, watch a Time Jumper video and you will notice when Dawn Sears sang a straight 8 country song, Ranger Doug often put aside his Stromberg and went to a flattop with a capo! His archtop would just be wrong!

Always use the right tool for the job. Laughing

just use a capo
I get a kick out of where this is going... Pretty much the most times DY has ever played an Eb was when we used to tune everything down a half step while touring...
and then he would have been just fingering an E chord.
