Rare guitar chords

Rare guitar chords DEFAULT

Chords are probably the very first thing guitar players learn when they start playing guitar.

Think about the hundreds of songs you can play with a handful of chords. If you use a guitar capo, things are even easier because you can transpose the chords in different positions of the guitar neck.

It sounds good, right?

The problem is, playing the same chords over and over again is the main reason why you get bored of playing the guitar.

All the songs sound the same, and after a while you find yourself thinking “How can I learn new chords?” or “When can I learn intermediate chords?”

In this fingerstyle guitar lesson, I am going to show you nine beautiful chords on guitar and how to actually play them.

Once I show you the chord, I will demonstrate how to play it in a beautiful chord progression.

These are the beautiful chords we will learn:

  1. Cadd9
  2. Gsus4
  3. Em9
  4. Am(add9)
  5. Amaj7
  6. Dsus2 and Dsus4
  7. Bb13
  8. C#m9
  9. Emaj7

About Chords and Extended Chords

Before we start playing any chords, you need to learn about extended chords.

The list of chords we are about to learn includes many extended chords. An extended chord is a simple chord (or basic chord) played with additional notes from the scale.

The difference between basic and extended chords is that:

  • A basic chord has three note only, the root note, 3rd, and 5th. The root note gives the name to the chord; the 3rd determines if the chord is major or minor, and the 5th is the perfect, diminished or augmented interval inside the chord.
  • Extended notes such as 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th add beautiful colors to the basic chords.

Enjoy these chords guys.

1. Cadd9 Chord

The Cadd9 chord is an extended chord that can be used in the C major and G major key as well as relative minor keys such as A minor or E minor.

It’s a basic triad with the extended 9th.

The notes of the Cadd9 chord are C E G D (root, major 3rd, perfect 5th, major 9th)

This is the Cadd9 chord diagram:

Cadd9 chord diagram

The Cadd9 chord is a beautiful open chord that fits perfectly between chords such as G or E minor. The additional note D creates a resonating cluster with the top E string open.

The chord progression I am about to show you is Cadd9 | G | Am | Fadd9|. The F chord is also played as an add9 chord.

2. Gsus4 Chord

The Gsus4 is a very popular chord on the guitar.

Also called “Suspended” chord, the Sus4 is an extended chord played with the root note, 4th, and 5th.

Because this chord doesn’t have the 3rd, it can be neither major or minor. That explained the “Suspended” label.

The notes of the Gsus4 chord are G C D (Root, perfect 4th, and perfect 5th).

This is the Gsus4 chord diagram:

Gsus4 chord diagram

One of the things I like a lot about the Gsus4 chord is that it’s easy to create simple voicings within the chords.

We can move the 4th back to the 3rd and use the voicing to create a simple melodic idea.

Check the example below.

Gsus4 Chord

3. Em9 Chord

The Em9 chord I am about to show you is indeed one of the most popular chords on the guitar.

The cluster between the F# and G is pretty much the reason why I love this chord so much.

The m9 is a chord with root, minor 3rd, perfect 5th, minor 7th, and major 9th. We add the minor 7th even though it doesn’t show in the chord name.

The notes of the Em9 chord are E G B D F#.

This is the Em9 chord diagram:

Em9 chord diagram

As I was saying, I love the cluster between the note F# and G and between the note D and E.

With this chord we can come up with a simple yet beautiful chord progression like this one: Em9 | Cadd9 | G | D |

Check the example below.

Em9 Chord

4. Am(add9) Chord

The Am(add9) chord is another great chord that will take you from beginner to intermediate level.

This chord can be quite stretchy on the little finger, so I highly recommend that position your left hand correctly (more info in this article).

The add9 chord is a basic chord played with the major 9th. The notes of the Am(add9) chord are A C E B (Root, minor 3rd, perfect 5th, and major 9th).

This is the Am(add9) chord diagram:

Am(add9) chord diagram

I love the exotic sound of the Am(add9) chord. Once you overcome the initial struggle, you will find yourself playing this chord over and over again.

The chord progression is Am(add9) | Am(add9)/G  | Fmaj7 | % |. Repeat the Fmaj7 for two measure.

Am(add9) Chord

5. Amaj7 Chord

There is one word that best describes the Amaj7 chord, and this is “Dreamy.”

The maj7 is indeed one of the most satisfying chords family to explore, learn, and put into practice.

The Amaj7 chord is a basic chord with the extended 7th. The notes are A C# E G# (Root, major 3rd, perfect 5th, and major 7th).

This is the Amaj7 chord diagram:

Amaj7 chord diagram

It’s easy to write a beautiful chord progression when you work with such an amazing chord.

In this example, we are going to play Amaj7 | Dmaj7 | Amaj7 | Esus4 |.

Amaj7 chord

6. Dsus2 and Dsus4

Let’s explore more suspended chords in D major key.

You already learned that the suspended chord is a chord played without the 3rd.

The difference between the Sus2 and Sus4 chord is that

  • With the Sus2 we lower the 3rd of the chord down to the 2nd.
  • With the Sus4 we raise the 3rd of the chord to the 4th.

The notes for the Dsus2 are D E A (root, major 2nd, and perfect 5th). The notes for the Dsus4 are D G A (Root, perfect 4th, perfect 5th).

This is the chord diagram of both chords.

Dsus2 and Dsus4 chord diagram

Using both DSus2 and DSus4 in the same chord progression make it easy to write awesome chord progressions. You can actually write a song with just these two chords.

Let me show you an example.

Dsus2 and Dsus4 Chord

7. Bb13 Chord

Let’s explore a Jazzy chord progression with the Bb13 chord.

The 13th chords are extended chords played with root, 3, 5, 7, and 13. Just like the Em9 chord, the Bb13 will also have the 7th.

For the Bb13 the notes are Bb D F Ab G (Root, major 3rd, perfect 4th, minor 7th, and major 13th).

This is the chord diagram:

With such a jazzy chord we can’t help but playing jazzy chord progressions.

In this example, we are going to play Ebm9 | Bb13 | Dbmaj7 | Dbmaj9 |. Some of these chords are stretchy so take it step-by-step.

Bb13 chord

8. C#m9 Chord

Let me show you one of my favorite chord on the guitar, the C#m9.

This chord is insanely beautiful, and it can be played with both strumming and fingerpicking technique. It’s a basic chord with the extended 7th and 9th.

The notes of the C#m9 chord are C# E G# B D# (Root, minor 3rd, perfect 5th, minor 7th, and major 9th).

This is the diagram of this beautiful chord:

C#m9 chord diagram

This chord works beautifully with chords such as A, E, F#m, and B major. If we also add extensions to these chords, the result is guaranteed.

This is a chord progression with the C#m9 chord.

C#m9 chord

9. Emaj7 Chord

Last but not least the Emaj7 chord made it to this awesome list.

This chord is a basic chord with the extended major 7th.

The notes are E G# B D# (Root, major 3rd, perfect 5th, and major 7th).

This is the diagram for the Emaj7 chord:

Emaj7 chord diagram

The Emaj7 chord is a beautiful dreamy chord that can be played along with the Amaj7, C#m9, or B major. In this example, we are going to focus on a simple example using Emaj | Amaj |x2

Emaj7 chord

Let’s Wrap This Up

I hope you enjoyed learning these beautiful chords.

The goal for this lesson is to show you that you can quickly implement beautiful chords into your playing as long as you put them into practice.

Good luck with this lesson.

Weird Yet Beautiful Guitar Chords Even Beginners Can Play

One of the great pleasures of learning guitar is discovering the beautiful non-standard chords that are actually easy to play! You can use them to enhance songs you already know because even though they may not be a part of the standard chord progression they can form the perfect embellishment when “normal” chords don’t quite cut it.

These chords are most often found in prog rock, fusion, jazz, and experimental music, not because they’re hard to play but rather because it’s the more musically adventurous who tend to like using them. But many of the chord positions are no harder to play than standard chords, and there are no firm and fast rules for where to stick them. Why not let that musically adventurous player be you?

We’ve included diagrams of some positions, but feel free to go to our chord finder and see if there are other positions you’d like to try. You can also use the Uberchord app to tell you the name of the chord you’re playing, so if you forget a chord’s name or if you do happen to create a “new” chord, let the app listen to you play the chord and then tell you its name.

Suspended 4th Chords

This is a gorgeous chord that raises the middle note by one semitone, essentially replacing the third note of the key with the fourth note. It’s called “suspended” because in the chord progression the fourth has been suspended from the leading chord, but you don’t really need to remember that now.

As beautiful as they sound alone, suspended 4th chords beg to be resolved. In other words if you play a Dsus4 you’d better play a normal D right afterwards or your listeners will feel like they’ve been left hanging. Don’t worry– moving from a suspended 4th chord to a plain chord is easy peasy– it just means moving one finger.

Suspended 2nd Chords

This chord is airy, ethereal, and resonant. It’s something like the suspended 4th chord but can stand on its own, and some of Joni Mitchell’s songs use one suspended 2nd chord after another. In this chord, the third note of the key is replaced with the second.

Major 7th Chords

In a major 7th chord the 7th note of the key is added to the chord, and because this 7th note is raised one semitone it’s major, not minor as it normally is in the major scale. It’s a slightly dissonant chord that can add just the right touch of confused melancholy.

Diminished 7th Chords

In diminished 7th chords, the 7th note of the key is added to the chord and flattened a semitone so that it’s diminished, not minor as it would be in a normal major chord. It too is dissonant, but also kind of quirky.

6, 9, 11,and 13 Chords

We’ve lumped all these together because it would take too long to explain each one. Besides, these chords share a few important characteristics. Some of them may be a little harder to play, but if you take them on in a spirit of fun and games you can easily incorporate a few of them into your chord repertoire.

The numbers refer to the notes in the scale. For example, if you want to play a D13 you would count on your fingers 13 up from D, which would be a B, up an octave. A D13 chord must, therefore, contain a high B.

These kinds of chords are often called “voicings” because they give alternative voices to the basic triadic chord. Voicings aren’t so much an integral part of chord progressions as they are options that you can use however you like.

The great news about these chords is that if you see one in a chord progression and you don’t quite know it yet or the position is too hard for you to play, you can replace it with the standard chord. It’s not perfect, but it’ll work for now.

Similarly, jazz musicians will insert these chords even if the sheet music doesn’t call for it, letting their ears tell them where in the music such a chord might enhance the sound.

______________

Weird chords can keep you motivated when you hit the boring repetition wall. They can give you self-confidence and greater satisfaction in your own playing. Even better, they can make you sound like a much more experienced guitar player than you are, especially if you can name the chords! Keep your Uberchord app handy and you’ll be looking and sounding like an expert in no time.

Weird Chord Shapes... THAT SOUND AWESOME!

Advanced chord progressions

This guide presents some uncommon chord progressions for guitar players that already know lots of fundamental progressions. You will probably learn some new chords and shapes that can help you develop your guitar playing further, especially if you also write songs.

It is understood that you already know basic chords; therefore, only the rare chords are shown in pictures.

E – Aadd9/E – E

Aadd9/E chord
Aadd9/E

This is only two chords, but it is a very simple yet original combination that you can develop further into longer sequences, see below.

*

E – Aadd9/E – Badd9/E – Aadd9/E – E (see tab)

Badd9/E chord
Badd9/E

This is a continuation of the last sequence and as you can see the shape is the same for all three chords.

You can also try to experiment with the following nearby shapes: 0x2100, 7x7600 and 9x9800, more suited for finger picking.

tab chord progression

*

Em – A7/D – Dadd9

EmA7/D chord diagramDadd9 chord diagram
Em                               A7/D                            Dadd9

Observe that the thumb should be used to press down the sixth string in two cases.

*

B – E – F#7sus4

E chordF#7sus4
E                                                     F#7sus4

The E and F#7sus4 chords are played in different ways than usual as the pictures indicate. The B chord should be played as a pseudo-barre 799800.

*

D – G/D – A/D – G/D – D (see tab)

G/D chord diagramA/D chord
G/D                                          A/D

From the regular D chord you continue to play on the highest strings with two similar shapes.

tab chord progression

*

G – C/G – G – Em9 – D7/F# – G

Em9 chord diagram
Em9

As you can see is Em9 (more or less) a C major with the root on the fifth fret.  This progression is actually a part of the Bob Dylan song “Boots Of Spanish Leather” and is in the original context played with capo on the third fret. This progression sound especially great using fingerpicking.

*

C – G/B – Bm b6 add11 – Am – Am/B – C

Bm b6 add11 chord
Bm b6 add11

Bm b6 add11 has a messy chord name and can be a little tricky to play, but your muscle memory will probably get a hang of it soon.

*

E(II) – B/D# – A/C#

E(II) chordB/D# chordA/C# chord
E(II)                                         B/D#                          A/C#

An alternate E major chord is to prefer here since it use the fifth string for its root note.



This guide to uncommon chord progression will continue to increase in following updates.
