Bb7 = Charlie Parker
I don't think that chord shows up in Couldn't Stand the Weather. Also, Stevie typically played Em7 in Superstition rather than E79.
Wasn't it really the Ellington chord?
The 7#9 chord has always been there. It relates to the A diminished half whole scale. It wasn't originated by Ellington or Hendrix, that is just how we became familiar with it. But it has been used in many arena's for hundreds of years.
It's actually a sound of nature, musical nature.
Me thinks the chord appears in...
Shoot to Thrill (AC/DC)?
Born to be Wild?
I don't think anyone can top this one: CCR Keep on Chooglin is almost 8 minutes straight of that chord!
It's in Born To Be Wild
I'm pretty sure Igor used it back in 1910 in this famous shred tapping piece:
C# mi.7 Robin Trower
Lady Love, Day of the Eagle, Too Rolling Stoned is Cmi.7, and others.
Thank you for the progression. I just added new spice to my kitchen! To quote Newman - Jambalaya!
My ear hears E7#9 as E7b10. I understand the conventions used in naming chords, but that will always sound like g, not f## to me.
I think that John Scofield could have named his recordings "Bump" and "A Go Go" something like "I Know a Buttload of Great Grooves and Lines over 7#9 Chords Volume 1 and 2".
Like others have said, it definitely predated Jimi.
Love it, but he stole that from Hendrix.
Lady love is B standard. Eagle is c#. You are correct stoned is in C standard.
The whole point of C# is the open low E. Love it. I spent about a year in that Key. Relative minor of E = good on guitar.
C7#9 the opening chord riff in Chicago's It Better End Soon. Kath did a better job of it on Carnegie Hall than the studio version, IMO.
An appropriate song for today.
E minor major 9 the "James Bond chord.". Cool end to a fun to play and very recognizable song.
Then you could call it the Debussy chord.
I beg to differ sir, Lady Love, is right out of a C# mi. grip 9th fret. @26:00
It may be sounding in "B" relative to A440 cuz he tunes down a step from concert pitch, so I guess "technically" you could say it's in "B". Is that what you mean?
