Thanks S & R: This is a site I had in my ``favourites'' some time ago and somehow managed to lose it. Tried hard to find it without success.
It's a top site for finding chords in all sorts of tunings.

No. someone named Norma Troy showed to me: CGCGCD. D being the 9th. It is from Apalacian banjo , I think. She used it on a song about a fisherman named Johnah.

That's the one Brian C G C G C D, the site s&r put on is OK in it's own way but you have to insert the notes for each and every chord, I don't really want to go through the whole gamut of majors, minors, sevenths etc for each key it would take hours

HELP !!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Raggy -I read your request as being for 'The Chord of C9' in open tuning , rather than the full chords for C9th Tuning !!

C9th is (of course) the tuning for "Can-a-dee-i-o" by Nic Jones. Thats not too hard to work out once you've got the tuning. Its also close to tunings used by Martin Simpson for a lot of his stuff.

The strings from the bottom are :- CGCGCD. Martin Simpsons variant is CGCFCD (third string lowered by a tone). Its also the tuning for Jim Morays "gypsies".

Thanks, GUEST. I now I know how Nic got that great sound. I have never mastered that tuning. I must admit I am a hopeless strummy-strum boom-chicker when it comes to guitar. I remembered it because Norma made it sound so good. I think she said she got it from a musician in a group called Trapezoid (I know, a bald-faced folk rock rip-off of a name(Gee am I hyphenated tonight)!

Raggytash,

Could you be more specific about what chords or what song you are trying to learn. I know there are much better musicians in this forum who could answer all sorts of questions about chords, tunings, conflict resolution, ect...

For non standard tunings I use a freeware programme called "Nutchords".

Laid out like a guitar fretboard you can alter the tuning of the open strings to whatever you want and then flip through the inversions of any selected chord, or see almost every imaginable scale. Pressing one key lets you hear the chord on a guitar and another lets you hear the same inversion on a piano. It'll do printouts too.

It's useful for reverse engineering fingerings you've seen played and telling you what the chord is too.

I can also be used for tuning up to as well.

great little prog, and it's FREE!

Here's a handful of chord shapes that work well in CGCGCD tuning:

000002, 000323, 000203, 007770, X55557, 000505

I don't worry about what they're called. They just work.

There is a video on www.songtown.com about alt tunings. One of them is an open C9 tuning. They play several song styles, you could catch at least 8-12 different chords. The videos are free. They are taught by Clay Mills a multi #1 hit songwriter. He names the chords as he plays. Good luck
