Watch the Major 6/9 online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Next Steps Jazz: 2-5-1 Progressions

This is also used as a 1 chord but with a different color than a major 7th chord. It may be a little tricky fingering this chord at first because of the double bar, you are doing both with your index finger and ring finger. Once you get it, hold it and try to get your fingers comfortable making this shape. Then move it up and down for a great sound! This fingering is very similar to a dominant 9 chord which we will discuss in upcoming segments.
