Cool 9th Chords You Want to Know

9th Chords

All these 9th chords have the 9th on the G string.
The notes from low to high are the root, 7th, 9th, and 3rd.

The 9th and 3rd on the adjacent strings, add a nice dissonant 2nd interval in the top range of the chords.

Jazz guitarists use these rich-sounding chords quite a lot.

Here are the fingerings:


Moving the 3rd, on the B string, up to the next note in the scale, gives you a sus chord.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
