Ya, thats correct G_urr_A. Chord names can be a real pain in the ass to keep straight

C9 = A C7 with the next third added. 1 3 5 b7 9
Cmaj9 = A Cmaj7 with the next third added. 1 3 5 7 9
Cadd9 = A C with the 9th added. 1 3 5 9

And I don't believe there is a chord called Cmaj2, I believe it would be just C2. And i'm pretty sure when dealing with guitar you don't worry about C2's either. I think worrying about C2's is kept with piano's and such, I think those are generally treated as Cadd9's for guitar players. I mean, you could have and play C2's with a guitar, but I think they are just fingered in the same way as a Cadd9. Not 100% sure on that though, if a C2 has different fingering then a Cadd9, I'd love to hear about it!
