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.
Dead strings and fret buzzing means you are not holding down the guitar chord correctly. Stop, check your fingers, and start over.
If you are a beginner guitarist, start by learning to play easier beginner guitar chords at first, and advance to harder ones with time.
