Chord Of The Month #5

It's that time of the month... Episode 5 of Chord of the Month!

In this one, we look at another voicing for a major 9. It's a nice and simple one that creates an open, sparse kind of sound. It is interchangeable with basically any major 7 chord.

If you really want to implement this voicing into your own playing, I recommend taking it through the circle of fifths and learning it in all 12 keys.

Lesson Summary:

  • Intro & demonstration of the chord
  • Step-by-step breakdown of the voicing
  • Quick run-through in a couple of different keys
  • See the chord being used in context
