This blog contains the chord diagrams to accompany a video which was requested by a viewer of my Celtic guitar tutorials Youtube channel, Folk Friend! Watch the video below:

Here are the diagrams for every chord I mentioned in the video.
The E9, E #9 and E b9 shapes mentioned are the same as the D9… shapes shown above. Move them up two frets and you have their E equivalents! This also means you can now leave the lowest E string in the chord to give a bassy root note.
Loads to play with there!
If you’d like to learn more about music theory for Irish, Scottish and general Celtic folk backing, along with strumming patterns, ear training, audio examples and loads more chord shapes, then you need my e-book, available here. You can also find the paperback edition linked on that page.
I also offer one-on-one lessons via Skype, Whatsapp or Zoom. These are the quickest and best way to become a better musician with help from a professional teacher, tailored to your needs! Contact me today to book your FREE TRIAL LESSON.
