Does anyone have an inversion that sounds prettier?
I don't know, the one I'm using just doesn't sound full...

x20000

It doesn't really fit with the song...

The chord progression goes:

D
Dadd9/C#
G6/B
D/A
G/B

The G6/B just sounds bleh comming after the Dadd9/C#.

Try playing it in root position, so throw in the G on the low E string

But...wouldn't that make G the bass note and not B?

B|-5-
G|-4-
D|-5-
A|-2-

That voicing looks a lot more like Em7 than G6. Try x20030. Sounds a bit more like G6 for some reason.

What song is it, by the way?

Yeah I was thinking of that voicing, but it seemed a bit difficult. you could always move that down a string giving you 7 10 9 9, but I still think it sounds more like Em, especially because it lacks a D.

Sounds decent to me


This sounds like it fits the best actually, but thank you everyone!

That's even more like Em7, but if it works, then great!

The song is "Table of Plenty" by Dan Schutte.

What's the difference between a Gadd6 and a G6? For both you just add the sixth note, in this case E, correct?

Gadd6 is a misnomer, the "add" is redundant.

Well, when would it be suitable to use "add" instead of just putting the number?

Alright use this voicing, I think you will like it and has all the notes

I put my first suggestion in, because I play a lot of jazz lately, so I was kinda in that mood.

e|-0-
B|-3-
G|-4-
D|-5-
A|-2-

I hate to sound like a dick but that doesn't really fit it at all. I don't know now I'm so confused because I can't get a chord that sounds dead on the song...

Ah okay.

I used it in this way;

Here are all the chords;

e|-2--0--0--2--3--
B|-3--3--3--3--3--
G|-2--2--4--2--0--
D|-0-----5-(0)-0--
A|----4--2--0--2--
E|----------------


The 2nd chord lacks the major 3rd so it's more a sus2, but it would work just as well imo.

Though I haven't heard the song so I don't know.

The last one sounds great. But is it really a G6/B?
Thanks,

The last one is G/B.


The chord "food" gave would be the best option if this doesn't work.

How about this one?

e|--0--
B|--8--
G|--9--
D|--0--
A|--10-
E|--7--


It's a somewhat awkward fingering because there is no bar, but it's not too much of a stretch and I like the voicing.

EDIT: oh yeah, you can also skip the B string and play it open if you have trouble with that fingering.

It's when you omit notes of a chord.

Like sometimes you play C9 for example, then you would play the 4 notes of the seventh chord AND the ninth (so the second an octave up) However, if you say Cadd9 you just play C E G D and you omit the seventh.
