Nashville Number System: 3 minor chord in key of E
Use for: G#minor, G#min, G#m – ONLY when you are in open E
Playing Tip: it’s the same shape as the F#m11, just slide up two frets higher
Note: A very unusual voicing. ‘sharp fives’ have a weird sound. But in the key of E – it works! This is because the note that sounds weird in the chord – the sharp five – is the note E. The root note of the key. So overall this chord works as a normal G# minor, but with an extra note to emphasise the key you are in.
