In a recent lesson with a student we began with some stretching exercises which led me into a discussion of add9 chord grips (which are awesome as a stretching exercise). Discussions then went to the music of The Police and the chord choices of their guitarist, Andy Summers, in some of their most iconic songs.
I can't claim to be any aficionado on The Police but I did know that Summers used sus2 and add9 grips in songs such as 'Message In A Bottle' and 'Every Breath You Take'. Now, I love the sound of these chords and so I thought I'd bring it to my YouTube channel in this week's lesson.
Below are chord boxes that I uploaded to my Instagram feed in support of the video lesson:
