E Major 9

Here's a nice E major 9 inversion. It makes use of the guitars open strings so isn't moveable, but is a nice sounding guitar chord inversion.

Major 9 chords can be played in place of major 7th chords, and often in place of major chords. It can replace I and IV chords.

Major 9 chords use these degrees of the major scale: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9

E Major 9 uses the notes: E, G#, B, D#, F#

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

Tune in tomorrow for another guitar chord of the day.
