Em add9 Guitar Chord

Today's guitar chord of the day is E minor add9. This guitar chord is in open position and is a simple variation on an open E minor chord. Today we've got two different inversions of the same chord. The first one is my favourite with a nice close interval between the F# on the D string and the open G string, it's also easy to play using just two left hand fingers:

Place your fingers close to the frets and make sure that each note sounds cleanly.

The next fingering is like a regular open E minor chord with with the addition of the second fret on the top E string.

Here are the notes used in our chord:
  •  Minor add9 chords use: 1, b3, 5, 9
  • Emin add9 = E, G, B, F#

This chord is used in lots of songs in the key of Eminor, this chord can be played instead of most Eminor chords to add some extra colour.

Tune in tomorrow or browse through some more Guitar Chords Of The Day using the labels or search.
