    John Martyn used this quite a bit for a D minor: XO3O1O. Sounds even better in dropped D tuning (003010). Try hammering on and pulling off the second fret A on the 3rd string for an embellishment.

    Here's a teaching page I use sometimes.
    A few of them are a little tough w/o some visual explanation.
    If there's interest, I'll do a little video.

    What is a Adim13? The notes in 000550 are E A D C E E, so Am(add 4).

    There was an old blues guy that ended every song on an Eb major chord, and dagnammit, I can’t remember who it was! I googled it to no avail.

    At end of Secret Agent Man (in Em) I always play this: 021002

    I know it wasn’t played like this in the original Johnny Rivers recording, but a jazz guitar player filling in on bass for our band one time showed it to me. I like how it sounds. It may well work in other minor key songs.

    If anyone can explain the theory behind the usage of this chord, that would be great! I call this Em maj9, but not 100% sure I am correct.

    I have "The Spy Chord."

    But if I showed it to you, you'd have to die.

    Huh - stumpy little, short uns. There are some chords that most people I'm sure can play and I can't even stretch my fingers there using my other hand to pull and hold them. I guess if I ever meet Tony Iommi I'll tell him how hard done by I am...

    It looks like 2 notes are in the wrong positions

    C13
    -8
    -10
    -9 <
    -8 <
    -10
    -8

    =)

    Almost, E/Am(add4)

    I see little need for the E in the bass.
