Funk Guitar Chords: 13th Chords
Played on it's own, this is a pretty "jazzy" sounding chord that might sound a little out of place in funk music. It is commonly used, however, as a "passing chord". Note that the above 13th chord is essentially a 9th chord, with the note on the first string being two frets higher. Many funk guitarists will play the 13th chord, then quickly resolve it to the 9th chord, by removing their pinky from the first string, and playing the chord again. Give it a try.
