    My songwriting partner is a guitarist. In our latest project he has notated a few chords I am having trouble making sense of. Can anyone suggest chord names or mando fingerings for what he calls:

    Fingering for G-9

    I have a song I'm working on with two guitar chords: G minus 9 (which I think is G, D, Bb and D) and A/G (A with a G in the bass? or G, E, A and C#?). Anyway, the verse goes back and forth between...

    Re: CM7add6 Fingering

    The context is now (the song has changed a bit from my original post) a three chord phrase that ends each verse in a Steely Dan-esque jazz tune:

    BM7 F#M7 CM7add6

    The melody line is: B F# ...

    CM7add6 Fingering

    Can anyone recommend a fingering for this chord: CM7add6 ?

    I like 7445 for the DM7 and 6411 for the F#M7 so something close by would be cool.

    Thanks

    A7-9

    Could someone please name the notes in this chord and also suggest some fingering options. It falls between a GM7 and DM7 in a song I am trying to learn.

    Thanks,

    Re: F chord

    I like 2-3-3-x for the F. It has everything. The root is on the D string, the 3rd is on the G, and the 5th is on the A. It's a handy shape for a IV chord because the three finger I chord (5-2-3-x for...
