It’s so hard for me to think “chords” when it comes to bass! I’ll keep working. It’ll sound really nice when I get it.
Daric excellent lesson. T
The 9 chord itself sounds great, but when the MAJ – MIN 3rd kicks in WOW it enhances everything. Plus it really trains your ear to hear the difference in the 3rds when you use the 9.
Trying for roughly two weeks now to fret the 9 chord (including the 3) but I barely succeed. Either I fret the 3 properly and can’t stretch to the 9 with the pinky (or i accidently mute the g string with the pinky) or i reach the 9 and then the middle finger lifts unvoluntarily. Any recommendations?
Honestly Lenny… I still struggle with this position of chord. That’s why sometimes I omit the 3 or the 5 in order to play efficiently. But it can also be a couple of other things….fretting hand fingers aren’t curved enough to reach notes(just have to work on stretching for that) your hand/ arm position/posture could be affecting your execution (I will show you in a video of what I mean by this) so in conclusion don’t feel bad, I struggle too lol. It takes a ton of time to be “comfortable” with this chord
Thanks for the reply Daric!
I will try to work on stretching and curving fingers more.
