As the label indicates, add9 chords are major chords with an added 9th degree note. They are four note chords, as opposed to the original 9 chord, which is a five note chord. An add9 has the notes 1-3-5-9, while the 9-chord has 1-3-5-b7-9. The add9 is a sweet sounding chord, while the 9-chord is dissonant and needs to be resolved.
Here are 6 voicings of the Aadd9 guitar chord, with a chord chart to each voicings' fingering.
Keep your hand loose, rather than stiff and hard. A loose hand is essential for playing chords and switching between them.
Learning guitar chords may seem hard at first, but with time and practice, you'll be able to play all the chords you want.
