Actually, Gadd9. Gadd2 doesn't make sense in theoretical terms. :)

i had it explained to me once that Gadd9 implied that there was also the 7th...or something about octaves...haha...i'm not that familiar with the theory behind the numerical naming of chords.

G9 implies the seventh. When the word "add" comes before the number, then you simply add that note to whatever came before it. Gadd9 would be a G major chord with an added ninth. G9 on the other hand implies every odd interval before the 9, so 1-3-5-7-9.

I'm lost in this conversation so I'll just try and look on some sites because you guys lost me a while back.

Thanks anyway though :yep: :yep: :) :)

Instead of power chords and variations why not learn simple things first,such as the open chords? Maybe they don't sound "cool" and all that,but they're easy,and you can make songs out of them. I can play the complicated chords too,the 9th's and 6th's,but there will be times when they just won't do. Start out easy and work your way up to the hader chords later.

its a G cuz thats the root but is it considered a barre chord? if u left out the high e and made it xx578x would that make it a power chord? its playing the 5th and the octave of the root..... like the description of power chords posted earlier.... i guess it prolly doesn't really matter, im just curious as to what exactly that would be called....


I'm not exactly sure what it would be called but I use it a good bit. I think if you were to leave off the high e then it would be power chord. It would be the same as x101212xx which is using the root and fifth.
