Awesome Chord: Aadd9 [5 7 7 6 0 0]

Today's awesome chord is one of my favorites, especially when used on an acoustic guitar! Aadd9 is basically an A Major barre chord, but you leave the 1st and 2nd strings open, giving you a terrific variation on a chord that is so often used in songs.

How to Play Aadd9 on the Guitar:
  • Place Your Left Index Finger on the 6th String, 5th Fret
  • Place Your Left Middle Finger on the 3rd String, 6th Fret
  • Place Your Left Ring Finger on the 5th String, 7th Fret
  • Place Your Left Pinky on the 4th String, 7th Fret
  • Strings 1 and 2 are used in this Aadd9 chord, but are not fretted - they are called open strings

It took me a long time to discover this chord, but now find myself wanting to use it often in my playing. You can also slide this chord shape up a whole step (2 frets) and you'll hear a Badd4, which sounds awesome too! Check it out!
