How do you make a gospel piano chord sound like a Cadd9?
Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. Take a major triad and add the second note of the chord.

Gospel piano players like to tuck the add9 note between the root and third, to create a crunchier sound that sticks out.

In the diatonic major chord scale, you’ll find minor chords on the second, third and sixth degrees—so you can very easily add some gospel vibes by changing those minor chords into minor 9 chords. Just be careful on the third degree, since the minor second on this degree is out of your major key’s scale and will sound very dissonant and jazzier.
