DaddG?

I'm trying to learn M. Ward's "I'll be Yr Bird" and there is DaddG and a DaddF# in the song. I searched everywhere for how to play these chords and I can't find anything. Can anyone help me out?

Re: DaddG?

Hi MegB
Don't know the song but a DaddG is played usually a straight D chord with a added Gnote played on the the low E string 3rd fret.
The DaddF# is the same chord with added F# note played on the low E string 2nd fret. It's a small walk down. If played one after another.

Re: DaddG?

wow lot a theory questions lately welcome to Chordie Meg, a D add G is a open D chord with your little finger adding the G on the 1st string 3rd fret,to keep it easy to understand all major chords are 135 in the key of D the notes are D F# A adding the G on top gives it a "suspended feeling" the note F# is already in the D chord (1st string 2nd fret) but adding it on the bottom as Arkady suggested gives it a nice Tom petty sound hopefully this explanation is not to hard to understand for you but all theory questions usually are if you are unfamiliar with it smile

Re: DaddG?

The Open D with the little finger fretting the G on the first string is usually referred to as a Dsuss4... ie there is no third being played so it's neither major or minor...

My take on D add G is that you fret the G on the fat 6th string along with the normal D and allow the finger that's fretting the G to mute the A string so it doesn't sound although you can let it play without any dischord...

same with the DaddF#, you have to ensure you mute the A string but can get away with it

personally, I would have notated it as a D/G and the other one as a D/F#

but some people really freak out at the prospect of slash chords

Re: DaddG?

yes it is a slash chord I misunderstood all add chords usually are extensions like 1 3 5 9 and the 9 is actually the 2nd only one octave higher as there are only 8 tones in a major scale smile
