What Is An E9 Chord?

The notes E, G#, B, D, and F# are all found in the E9 chord. It is created by taking the 1 (root), 3, 5, b7, and 9 from the E Major scale and adding them together. We refer to the 9th note of the scale as a 9, even though it is the same note as the 2nd note. We do so because it indicates that the chord is a dominant 7 chord (1, 3, 5, 7) with a 9 thrown in there.
