I’m trying to read along and play The Firehouse Jazz Band version of “Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans.” I’m stumped. Whaat’s a good way to make the F9 after the C? D9 after Am7? I know there is a basic moveable form for the 9th but making it seems to be cumbersome. Or, is it just me?
Hi Chris, I surely would, but I don't have a playable 5 string with me at the moment. It's all the same though. The thing to remember is the 3rd and 7th are the two important notes in any chord, and then you can add any extension you want. You can even leave out the 3rd in some of the wider extensions.
