F add9

Today's Guitar Chord of the Day, is a nice variation on a standard major chord: it's a standard major chord with an added 9th. This chord is moveable and has its root note on the guitar's A string.

You can either play this as a four string guitar chord, or barre across the G and E strings with your first finger.

Add 9 chords can be played in place of pretty much all major chords. It can replace chords I , IV and V in major keys

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

F add9 uses the notes: F, A, C, G

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: F, A, C, G.

Tune in tomorrow for another guitar chord of the day.
