This video has been requested by so many of you that I simply could not avoid shooting it :)

Today we learn together how to play 9th, 11th, 13th chords and we see the difference between, for instance, a "9th" chord and an "add9" chord. You will learn how to add chord tensions to your chords to make them sound wonderful.

Many of these chords will sound Jazzy, but you can definitely do much more than Jazz with them! (Metal songs are full of min add9 and min add11 chords...)

We also cover "stranger" chords like Cmaj9 or C7/b9, and we see what we can do when the chord has too many notes to be played on a guitar (chords like G13 have 7 notes in them... hard to play on a 6 string guitar!)

So if you don't know how to play chords like Am add11 or G9/#5, go and see the video and you'll learn all about them in less than 10 minutes ;-)

The video above requires you to know how to build triads and seventh chords. There's nothing hard in either triads and seventh chords, but in case you find yourself not completely familiar with them, here's a video that explains what 7th chords are and how to play them:

And here's another video that explains triads and the basics of music theory. These 3 videos taken together give you a nice "introductory course" on chords on guitar:

To understand everything about chords, how to play them on guitar, your options, and especially how to make it EASY for you to create interesting chord progressions and wonderful harmonies, there is no substitute for the Complete Chord Mastery course.

This is a complete video course that explains you everything step by step. Even if you are a beginner you will find yourself doing advanced harmony from the very first session, and if you are an advanced player you will still find a lot of good juicy material to sink your musical teeth in.
