Chord of the Month


Major ninth

Nearly made it up myself, this one, but it turned out to be a major ninth, taking its root from the note on the A string. If you play it like it is, it turns you into Jose Pass for a good ten minutes; slide it up and down two frets and you can play 'Un Homme Et Une Femme', if you're really old and remember the film. And if you play it with that second finger on the seventh fret, and leave the two open Es ringing, you grow a beard, just like John Martyn.
