All The 9th Piano Chords

Hello again, and welcome to the next edition of the newsletter. I hope you are enjoying learning about all the piano chords in the world -- and we're going to cover them ALL before we're done -- you'll know more about piano chords than 99% of the people in the world -- believe it or not, it's true.
Last time we covered maj7th chords. That was the last of the piano chords you can play without doing some fancy manuvering. Today we're going to learn 9th chords, and from now on we will be inverting the chords and using a 2-step process to play the piano chords.
A 9th chord is made up of a root, a 3rd, a 5th, a 7th (not the maj7th -- just the 7th) plus the 9th note of the scale, which of course is the same as the 2nd note of the scale, but an octave higher.
Why don't we call it a '2nd', then, instead of a 9th? Because the chord has a 7th under the 9th, whereas a 2nd wouldn't have a 7th under it.
