These two guitar chords exercises are featured in the book 50 Acoustic Guitar Chord Exercises

On this chords exercise sheet, we will be working with four chords: Em, Edim7, Fmaj7 and Fadd9.

Exercise 9

Whilst we don’t usually play diminished chords at beginners level, this one is not very difficult because it is an open chord, similar to an A7 chord shape with an added finger.


Exercise 10

Fadd9 is a moveable chord. We sometimes forget about these simple moveable shapes and get stuck playing only barre chords and power chords. Move it up 2 frets and you have Gadd9. Two more frets up and you have Aadd9. Incase you were wondering what an add9 chord is, it’s a full major chord with an added major 2nd or major 9th note added (major 9th and major 2nd are the same notes, but major 9th is an octave higher.
