Cool 9th Chords

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.

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