In this lesson I'm gonna show you a really useful type of chord called a "9 chord". It's used in all styles of music, and is particularly useful in the context of the blues.

All it is, is a dominant 7 chord, where you add the 9th scale step (Which is the same as the 2, but up an octave). It has a jazzier sound and is often used for the IV and V chord.

After going through the voicings, we're gonna play through the 12 bar form using thumb voicings for the I chord and 9 chords for the IV and V chord!
