Dominant 9b13 - Guitar chord diagrams - Drop 2 & drop 3 voicings

Chord formulas chartDominant ninth flat thirteen chords (7b13) are actually dominant 9 chords with an added lowered 13th. Dominant 9b13 chords are built with a root (1), major third (3), perfect fifth (5), minor seventh (b7), ninth (9) and flat thirteenth (b13).

This will help you to locate the chord and give it an appropriate name.
