D69

Today's guitar chord of the day can be substituted for almost any major chord. As the name suggests, it's an ordinary major chord with an added 6th and 9th.

This chord is moveable and has its root note on the A string (indicated by the black box in the chord diagram). This chord is fingered by playing the A string with your middle finger and barring across the D and G strings with your first finger.

69 chords can be played in place of major chords. It can replace chords I, IV and V in major keys.

69 chords use these degrees of the major scale: 1, 3, 5, 6, 9

D69 uses the notes: D, F#, A, B, E

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: D, F#, B, E, A

Tune in tomorrow for another Guitar Chord Of The Day.
