Does anyone know how to make guitar parts sound sad without using minor chords? I'm running out of ideas that use minor chords. Acoustic guitar btw.

i believe the Phrygian Mode is supposed to sound sad. perhaps you can construct runs from that.

I've made an extremely sad sounding song with Cadd9, D, G, C and F, so, you don't need minors..

It's the tune (melody) and the rythm.
Check out a few LPs from Meatloaf.

the dorian mode, locrian mode, and super locrian modes are good. especially the latter.
