i'm guessing you haven't encountered the concept of voicings, but there is far more than one way to play any given chord on a guitar.

the notes of A#m7b9 are A# C# E# G# B. you're probably better off figuring it out yourself, really.

here's a simple voicing:

e|-1-|
B|-0-|
G|-1-|
D|-x-|
A|-1-|
E|-x-|

the third is omitted here, however. if you wanted to play the third, you could play the second fret of the B string instead, but then you'd lose the b9. if you want to put the b9 in the bass, you could also do this:

e|-1-|
B|-2-|
G|-1-|
D|-x-|
A|-2-|
E|-x-|

though this might not sound good (or it could sound excellent) depending on the context.

EDIT:

where's the b9? what you have there is just A#7sus2 (or A#msus2, depending on context).

honestly, that's pretty much it. the formula for a m7 chord is 1 b3 5 b7. just add a b9 on there and you've got a m7b9 chord. that's really all it is.

Ahh cheers. I always forget about that 9th in relation to the major scale terminology, if you catch my drift. Such are the hazards of non-formal learning

my dream is to have a formal music education. if i ever get the money, i'm going to go study music in a german conservatory.

that doesn't seem likely, though.

Although this is off topic, if you want to claim that you're gonna feel that 5% of your income missing from your elevated income after living on instant noodles for 4 years, you're obviously not living a true student lifestyle.

or you could see it like this example: Emi7b9...E G B D F...no root and you have a nice G7 chord...and lots of easy fingerings and nice sounding voicings...include the root and you have a G13 (no 9th) sound..

play well

A sharp Min7b9

yeah, how to position my fingers on the fretboard as simple as that



out of curiosity, why the interest in this chord? did you find it in a song or something?

They may "exist" but they are not common in mainstream music. Unless you have a specific reason to learn it, Id suggest focusing on more commonly used chords.


How to play one?......take a m9 chord..... flat the 9.
shred is gaudy music

it's not as if pop music doesn't already exist. and it probably won't cease to exist soon.

besides, i have no quarrel with pop music. makes it that much easier for those of us who have better composition skills to look good.

You think that being aware of modern conventions is solely responsible for the existance of pop music?

and you wave your finger at me as if there is something wrong with pop music?


Very sad.

But seriously, if your talking about the Jonas Brothers maybe, but the Beatles?

but your right , the business side of things has really lowered the bar. The thing is the people that like bands like the jonas brother aren't into it for the compositional skills, so you have no advantage with them.... unless your poster boy material. (thats the sell)

Let the bassist worry about the root and don't include the clunky 5th on the A string. Hell, you could even take it out all together and play it
