Cadd9,

youve got the C E G from teh usual chord and the D on the B string as the 9th note.

EDIT: Damn SD got there before me

Go to your staff paper and re-write this song a half step down so on the paper it'll be like you have a "C" just move it down to a "B#"




Know your theory, then play like you don't.

It's also sometimes referred to as a C2, because it has the D in there(even though the d is the "ninth" note)

How would you make Gadd9 and Cadd7?


You don't need to "add 7" because 7 is generally the first extension to be added to a chord anyway. I assume you mean maj7, which is described as 1-3-5-7. An add 9 chord would be 1-3-5-9.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

That makes sense.

Gadd9 = 1 3 5 9 = G B D A

is a good way to play that.

Cadd7 = Cmaj7 = 1 3 5 7 = C E G B

|-8-|

is how I would play Cmaj7.

Each chord has its own formula. Any _add9 chord has the notes 1,3,5,9 from the _ major scale. So for G like said you would take the G major scale G A B C D E F# because the formula for a major scale is (w=whole note, h=half note) WWHWWWH. Hence Gadd9 would be G B D A.

Hopefully that made sense, and didn't confuse you more.
