When playing Cadd9 we start with our middle finger on the second fret of the C string. Next the ring finger is placed on the third fret of the A string. This seems like it should be easy with two fingers, but it is an awkward grip. Especially since you will have to keep the fingertips straight up to avoid interference with other strings. Pluck each string and make sure the open G and E strings are not being muted. Some players may find it easier to use the index finger on the C string instead.
