Can someone tell me a common fingering for an altered dominant chord with a #5 and a #9 please? I've been experimenting with coming up with some fingerings, but none of them are really that playable.

How about if you take the Hendrix chord and barre the e and B strings with your pinky? (I would post a tab if i knew how xDD)

A7#5#9

E--8--
B--6--
G--6--
D--5--
A--x--
E--5--

Play the that low A note on the E string with your thumb.

Or forget the Root all together and think of it as a rootless Eb6/9 chord. ala...(this is a very common form when comping in a band)

E--8--
B--6--
G--6--
D--5--
A--x--
E--x--

That way the Eb (if it was there, and take liberties to play it) gives you both the #5 and the b5 against A. Or you could play just a straight Eb9 chord and it would be a b5, #5, and b9, like...

E--6--
B--6--
G--6--
D--5--
A--6--
E--x--

Now dig this, you can move that low note to the E string, 6th fret, and put the #9 back in place and get a A7#5b9#9

E--8--
B--6--
G--6--
D--5--
A--x--
E--6--

If you're able, you could go all Ted Greene on it and catch that Eb on the A string too and get an A7b5#5b9#9 chord...

E--8--
B--6--
G--6--
D--5--
A--6--
E--6--

Tune your ears into that baby with a steady A drone going and you'll be able to hear with cake in your ears!

This is probably what I'd do.

Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.
