F minor 9

Today's chord of the day is a very useful and nice sounding minor 9 chord. This guitar chord is moveable, the square on the A string indicates the root note. This guitar chord can be fingered in a couple of ways either:
  • Barre across the G, B and E strings with you 3rd finger, or
  • Use your 3rd finger on the G string and little finger on the B string, the top E string should then be muted or not played.

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: F, Ab, Eb, G, C
