Chord Crazy!!!

I'm trying to play a "simple" part exactly as recorded by Kix Brooks on
"Brand New Man"...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbFv06CFyks

First chord into the solo, he hangs on that chord ala "Pinball Wizzard"
Seems like some kind of e shape at the 8th or 9th but no matter how
I try to finger it the sound isn't even close.

Anyone able to duplicate that sound?

I don't have sound here at work but, have you considered it might be in an alternate tuning?

I did think of that, but then he jumps right into an open D, adds and does a
pull off scale and it sounds like open E pentatonic just fine.

Try this:

Grab a first position C chord.

Slide that up to the 8th fret (now it's a G chord) and add your little finger to 10th fret (D) on the first string. Get the Gsus / G major toggle by hammering your little finger onto the 10th fret(C) 4th string. Finally if you want to, use your thumb on 10th fret last string (D).

The G is the drone tone--not the D. No special tuning required,

Hope it helps.

Whether or not he's dropped the low D string, it sounds to me as if he's strumming a seventh-fret (D-shape) G with a suspended fourth (C) on the high E string. This "Pinball Wizard" chord, along with the open D string (and a band behind you!) would get you close enough, I think.

I think you nailed it. The D is the acoustic playing GBDGDG, as in a G chord with a suspended D. The Strat is doing exactly what you said. Together, the G and D blend.

I'll use that.
Alone, it sounds weak, but at rehearsal I bet it fits great...

You still need to add the sus4 chord.

Here's an easy way:

Slide that 1st position C chord once again up to the 8th fret / 2nd string and add the little finger to the 10th fret / 1st string (D) and keep it there.

To toggle from the G major drone chord to the Gsus, just hammer onto the 10th fret / 4th string (C) with the third finger.

Here are the shapes:

G major drone chord Gsus

E-10 E-10
B-8 B-8
G-open G-open
D-9 D-10
A-10 A-silent
E-silent E-silent

ednew has a great ear for open chords, he's 100% right on the chord. It only sounds weak without the acoustic(Dunn) also playing the open "G" chord with extra "D" on the 3rd fret 2nd string.

Really good work ednew.
