E7#9 (E Dominant seventh sharp ninth chord) is Jimi Hendrix's favorite chord.

It sounds psychedelic. Let's play Purple Haze!

E7#9     G     A
Purple haze all in my brain

I like that chord too, but this rootless voicing doesn't "do it" for me. Maybe it would with a bass instrument filling in the root. I prefer linear tuning either 2103 or 2133 which is A7#9 but is also moveable up the neck. Try that with normal C and chords. That's rawk! :rock:

Hi, Jim! I am not sure why but root and 5th can be omit in usual. Guide tones have priolity. It sounds good to me on my uke.
