Hey guys,

I have a chord book, which voices an A9 like this...

e ------
B --12
G --14
D --14
A --16
E ------

However, one of the suggested fingerings for this chord is using the second finger to barre the D and G strings. I can't do this without muting the B string, and my pinky on the A string partially mutes the D string. Are there any tips on how to barre this?

Thanks!
Tom.

You may as well just use all 4 fingers. Barring in such a situation is unnecessary and can lead to some awkward wrist positions.
modes are a social construct

That's what I thought.
Well, are there any hints on helping with the pinky finger on the A string not mute the D string?

Just curve it and hope for the best, really.

Just practice. I'm still having a he'll of a time with g7 buts it's getting easier with time. I ncan get it ring out right now, just can't move to it fast. For such a simple looking chord it sure is a pita.

E-- 1
A--- 3
D open
G---2
B---4
E---- open
