E minor add9

Learning new guitar chords is a great way to come up with new song ideas and to spice up regular rhythm playing. Following on from yesterday's Am add9 inversion, today's Guitar Chord of the Day is E minor add9. Although in this diagram the guitar's E strings are muted to allow for transposing the chord to other keys, you can include them for an Em/9 (Em add9 can also be written as Em/9).

Minor add9 chords can be played in place of most minor chords and are a great way to add interest to regular chord progressions.
