Introduction

9th chords take chord construction to the next level, as we potentially get into the world of 5 note chords. As you can imagine, with this many notes in a chord the sound starts to get a little crowded, and massively changes. In this course, we cover major 9th, minor 9th and dominant 9th chords. We discuss the effect of adding the 9th, how it makes the chord sounds, where they are used and how you don't have to play all 5 notes every time! This course is great for those of you looking to advance from basic 7th chord ideas and add even more chords to your repertoire.

Playing 9th chords on the guitar is like painting with a broader palette of colors, allowing you to create musical landscapes that are both vibrant and expressive.

All of our Theory Lab courses are hosted "on the blackboard". This means that it is theory in the truest sense of the word. We're working with our brains and our thinking mind to try to understand the concept, before using the Guitar Skills, Player Studies & Challenges to put the ideas into practice. Therefore, you can watch or listen to the course without a guitar in hand, perfect for a journey to work or chilling with a notepad handy!
