Glad everything is going good.
Question for the pros here. Ill keep it quick to not take away from thread.

I've been playing for about 12years. Can play many solos and full songs and make up some ok sounding shit. But I can't read music. Don't know any chords or structure or scales or anything. Where do I start to learn this? Phone Post 3.0

fretboard logic will help with that.

Justinguitar.com goes through all of this as well

Add chords are when you "add" another note to your chord. I hope you have learned about intervals in fretboard logic or this is gonna be mighty confusing, I will do my best to explain it as if you don't understand what intervals are.

When you play a scale in a position you should notice that you have the same notes repeat a octave higher after you complete the initial 8 note scale. All the notes past your 8 interval( the scale root note octave) will repeat the scale note for note just a octave higher and they are numbered as intervals 9, 10,11,ect

So let's say you want to play a C add9

Your C chord is a triad made up of the root note (C) which is your C scales 1st interval, the 2nd note of the chord is your 3rd interval which is the 3rd note of your C scale(E), and your 5th interval the 5th note of your C scale (G). All major chords are made up of this 1,3,5 structure.
Now you want to "add" your 9th interval to this chord.
Your 8th interval is your root note(in this case C) so your 9th interval is the 2nd interval of your C scale that is a octave higher. The 2nd interval of the C scale is D so you play a C chord and add the High D note, the D that is past your root note octave(1st postion C chord this would be the 3rd fret on the B string.
Strum a open C chord and then "add your 9" by fretting the D note at the 3rd fret B string with your pinkie. Just go back and forth strumming the 2 chords(hold the original C chord while playing a C add9 this way you can switch between the 2 easily buy just lifting your pinkie off the B string) listen to how it changes the sound( the eagles Best of my Love is a good example of how you can use a add chord to spice up a chord progression)
Add 9 is the most common add chord you would use outside of jazz.

Clear as mud? High as fuck watching the Wild make the playoffs and Typing on my phone so hopefully its not too confusing.

Next lesson Sus chords. Phone Post

Me too, I'll use the 6 string root barre chord shape even if I want to voice the chord with the top 4 strings. It's a similar shape to the 5th string root minor barre chord, which you'll need to have mastered to play B minor, C minor, C# minor etc without a capo.

The 'Dummies' guide to music theory is actually a pretty reasonable resource for this. It covers the stave, time signatures, subdivisions of the beat (minim, crotchet, quaver, etc), scales, intervals, chord construction, etc. It isn't guitar specific but this is all universal.

I'd recommend it over some of the guitar specific stuff which isn't really a music theory primer but a system of patterns for navigating around the fretboard. That stuff is useful, but it isn't the fundamentals.
