It's time to come home minor 9, clean yourself up a little bit and get back in the game. So where should you use minor 9 chords? They're a naturally chord extension for any ii or vi chord. For example in the key of C, whenever you see a Dm or an Am, turn those guys into Dm9 and Am9 and watch them soar!
The chord spelling would be:
1 b3 5 b7 9It turns into an easy, fretboard-spanning arpeggio that you can stack quite nicely next to like chords (check out the video to see it). So let's say you're in the key of F. Our prime minor 9 candidates are going to be the 2nd and 6th degree of F, which are G and D. Executing one arpeggio rooted on the 10th fret of the A string (G), sits neatly beneath the 10th fret of the low E string (D).
And just like that, the minor 9 has found a way home.
