These shapes might be associated with certain players, but that doesn‚Äôt mean you can‚Äôt use them!
The Hendrix Chord: E7#9
The E7#9 is the Jimi Hendrix chord, as used in Purple Haze, Crosstown Traffic and Foxy Lady. It might bring Jimi's tunes to mind, but 7#9 chords have long been used in jazz and blues.
The "Wonderwall" Chord: Em7
This voicing has been associated with Noel Gallagher since he used it in Wonderwall, but the Em7 shape is a staple in acoustic folk guitar playing.
The Police Chord: Asus2
Andy Summers played this shape (sometimes as an add9 or minor add9 shape) in The Police's Message In A Bottle. It's more common now (try playing it in drop D tuning for an easier finger pattern), especially as a post- rock variation on grungy powerchords.
