Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon,
which works really well for this. Check it out.
Guitar Lesson Overview
Here are some examples of how you can spice up the usual E, A and B major chords by creating add9 voicings. We just move the octave to the 9 instead. It's a bit of a stretch, but it sounds great. You may recognize this sound from "Every Breath You Take", by the Police.
There's also a nice Bsus4 chord in there, which is quite easy to play but sounds great.
I use all of these chords shown quite often when I play, hope you like them!
This is where I teach full time. Join me, and let me help you become the player you always wanted to be. I will teach you scales, improvisation, grooves, phrasing, chords, licks, solos, songs, lines, inversions, voicings, theory, tone, gear, and much more.
Just try me - it costs nothing to test drive my site for 3 days.
I use Guitar Pro for most of my video lessons. It is a great product that will not only show you the notes in both TAB and standard notation, you will also HEAR them being played at the same you see them. Very helpful for learning! Click the link below to try the free demo.
I have lots of gear demos too on this site. Go and take a look at some of my
Guitar Videos for some examples of gear I use or have used.

Nathan, it is just a different way of adding that 9th note. There many different fingerings for all sorts of chords. The key is to know the intervals well.

Sounds amazing thank you, only problem is that i am almost 15 and have very small hands for my age.
Just one question though, how come on Cadd9 (off topic i know) the bottom note is moved up a step instead of the middle, like on the Eadd9, Aadd9 and the Badd9?
