The ukulele only has 4 strings. So if I were to want to make a 9th chord, is there an easier way than the way I've been trying? I've been doing things like
as a C9, which isn't too bad until I try to make a D♭maj9 chord, which totally sucks
It's a rather ridiculous stretch, though it gets better with dominant 9th chords or 7♭9 chords and much easier higher on the neck (where intervals are less distance). I've also tried using harmonics (7 frets up) to produce the higher extensions of the chord, but they're an octave too high and they are quiet. I also noticed that the stretch was way easier if I used index finger for both C and E strings, then ring for G and pinky for A strings, rather than barr(e?)ing the entire thing.
Note: I don't mean add9 chords, I mean omitting the 5th. I also don't mean omitting the root either, I can do that just fine. But I want to know whether anyone has seen any inversions besides root position that hopefully are less of a stretch. Also same for 11th and 13th if anyone knows any good voicings for those. Thanks for your help.
