Watch the Dominant 9th online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 1-2-3 Rockabilly Guitar
In this segment we will learn a D Dom9 chord shape. We'll start by placing the 2nd finger on the fifth fret of the A string. Next we will take our 1st finger and place it on the fourth fret of the D string and finally your 3rd finger will barre across the G, B and E strings by hyper extending. This is a movable chord shape. In other words it can be played anywhere on the guitar neck. The chord gets its name from the root of the chord which can be found on the A string. If you wanted to make this chord a C Dom7 you would simply find an C note on the A string and build this shape. Make sure to not play the low E string. It's not part of the movable shape.
