I was in guitar lesson with me teacher and just in the end of it he talked about the emotion of the chord. like he said, for example, an added 11 chord (like E with G#), sounds like hope, or hopeful. I'm just asking if you know what notes you can add to the chord to make them sound like certain emotions(like fear, hope, saddness, joy or whatever)?

It depends on the context. In a major key, a dominant 7th chord can sound bluesy; in a minor key it can sound dark and proggy. And it depends on how you play the chord - strumming it, arpeggiating it etc.

In an Eadd11 chord though, it means a G# above the top fifth in the chord (eg E B E G# B G#).

I think C9 has a very emotional sound, although i cant pin down what emotion exactly.

Harmonic context is what allows chords to have "emotional" voice. A chord in isolation doesn't give a whole lot of emotion.

If by Eadd11 you mean Eadd10, then you've got it spot on. The eleventh (fourth) degree of E major is A, so Eadd11 is some E, G#, B with a high A over it in root position. Inversions make add11s and add9s sound very different, so have fun.

That isn't Eadd11. That's Esus4/G#.

^ Ah, yes, you're right .


It's more chord progressions that are emotional, than individual chords imo.

Yeah, I thought something wasn't right there. From what I read, add11 = sus4 but with the third (if that makes sense).

Pretty much, but as has been pointed out, if the third is only in the bass note then it is generally called Esus4/G#.

add9 and m7 chords tend to work together to beautiful effect, in my opinion.

You ever watch one of those old mystery movies/tv shows where the detective is like "So and so did it!" Then the piano plays a chord? Usually, the chord played is a minor chord with a major 7th. I guess that's the chord to use when you want people know there's been a twist in the plot.
