How to Transpose Gadd9 Etc. At Capo2?

I wrote a tune with these chord shapes.

 

Gadd9 (320033)

Cadd9 (032033)

Dsus4 (000233)

E

Am

 

Challenge is i am playing these shapes at Capo2. Rather than irritating jam partners with capo madness, i want to just tell them the actual chords.

 

I know the E becomes an F and the Am becomes a Bm, but I am clueless on the first three. Can anyone help?

 

Thanks,

 

BB

I might be wrong, but I think you guys have missed the point. I think pekoe is trying to play the same chords he was playing open, but with a capo on II.

Trust me, It's better to put the capo on III.

-G (which is not actually a sus4 chord, just G with an extra 5th) 320033 becomes E (022100)

-Cadd9 becomes Aadd9 (577657) or Asus9(?) (x02420)

-Dsus4 becomes Bsus4 (x2445x)

-E becomes C#M (x46664)

-Am becomes F#M (244222)

 

Those are the chords, but IMHO the progression doesn't work at all. :facepalm:

No, he is asking what chords his buddies with no capo can pay along with him.

Yes, I want to know what the actual chord is when I play those shapes at Capo2 - so they can play along with no capos. Judging from the responses, the actual chords may not be the easiest for beginner level friends - correct? Should I just hand out capos ("Capos for All My Friends!")

 

The whole reason for the capo is that singing with no capo is too low for my lame voice!

 

The progression is not in that order! it is:

 

Gadd9 Cadd9 Dsus4 D

(four times)

 

D Am

(three times)

and ending on Cadd9 (one strum)
