Hello everyone! Thanks to our participants from last week:
Telecrater, MoshZilla1016

Every week for the next 8 weeks, we will choose a chord. In that given week, we will have to find someway to use that chord in a song, whether in be part of a progression, arpeggiated, fingerpicked, etc. Though we must write something that will use this chord shape in one week. I figured, why not let the rest of this board benefit from our undertaking.

So here's the deal:

1. Somewhere at the beginning of the week, I will select a chord for us to all learn about.
2. I will post a little bit of background on the chord, how it could be used or where it is being used.
3. You will all noodle around on your guitar with it.
4. Record your favorite riff, progression, lick, etc.
5. Post here and explain to us your mentality when you approached this problem (MOST IMPORTANT PART!!!)


I really urge more people to attempt these challenges each week! They have been a huge value to my guitar playing and have opened my eyes quite a bit in just 3 weeks of work. It benefits me to have more people doing this so I can see how they approach the same material as me!

For this week, we will be looking at 9 chords, specifically maj9 and m9.

Maj9 Chord Diagrams
m9 Chord Diagrams

What everyone should know about 9th Chords

Now there are many variations on 9th chords, and all of them will be valid for this week's challenge. Use any 9th chord you see fit for your progression/lick/riff/arpeggio. Good luck! Have fun!

Go to your main profile page (while logged in), mine is here. Find the upload you want to use, and click on "Full" next to its name. When you get to this page, scroll down a bit and you'll see "Single Song Widget." This is where you have the embed code.

For this i cheated by playing the 9ths with no 7 starting on the major 9th going to the same chord as the minor 9th then throwing in a couple major chords to finish off the 4 chord progression.

I went with more practical application of a 12 bar blues this week. THis is a complete 9th chord jam and sounds really cool with some funk.

Chords

B9 - Em9 - F#9 F#7#9

-7----7-----9----10-------
-6----7-----9----9--------
-7----5-----8----8--------

@Null:
What a great progression! Sounds so smooth and elegant. I can really see it either as an opening line, or a closing line to a progression. Awesome work :) Great to see you participating!

@telecrater
Awesome lick man! Though, i do have one comment: Your first chord is not a B9! It's missing the B in the bass, which pretty much makes it a min7b5, or half diminished chord! But I do love the turnaround on that progression. Good work!

Yeah your right, i started with the b9 and it was a pain to play i dropped the low b, it still sounded like if fit so i left it. thanks for pointing that out

So, after holidays and some internet outages, I was finally able to get this uploaded. Sorry for the long delay! We will begin Week 5 on the new year and I promise I will keep them updated :)

My Em9 Riff

There are a lot of songs out there when you look at what they play, it's just one chord with different nuances added. This is what I wanted to accomplish for this week. The m9 and maj9 chords are often used as fluff to progressions, so I used the Em9 as a way to seem like I'm moving somewhere, but in reality I'm staying on the Em the entire riff. I try to keep a simple bassline going the whole time, but I struggle a bit. That whole independent thumb thing... There is a lot of room for me to add to this, and I really see it is an intro to a verse or the verse of a song, leading into the jump away from Em.

Same as Jeff the past 2 weeks has been extremely busy, work & holidays. This is just a rhythm track. I figured the lead could be done so many different ways that I'll leave it up to your imagination what should be played over the progression.


DM9 Am9 DM9 Am9 DM9 Am9 GM9..FM7(4X) DM9
e--2----3----2----3----2----7--+--7----8-------+--2--
B--2----1----2----1----2----5--+--7----10------+--2--
G--2----4----2----4----2----5--+--7----9-------+--2--
D--2----2----2----2----2----5--+--7----10------+--2--
A--5----0----5----0----5----7--+--10---8-------+--5--
