E7#9 'The Hendrix Chord'

'The Hendrix Chord'

Carrying on with the Jimi Hendrix chords mini-series at guitar chord of the day, we'll follow up yesterday's post with another fingering of the famous 'Hendrix Chord', used in Purple Haze, Stone Free, Cross Town Traffic and more

This chord is moveable and has it's root on the the D string, though if you play it in other keys you'll have to leave off the open bottom E String.

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: E, G#, D, F## (G)
