Ok so im still a beginner to playing blues style guitar. I want to know some more chords that i can play for blues. i know all the major, minor, and 7th bar chords. what are some other good blues chords to learn.
"I wanna see movies of my dreams"

the hendrix chord is always useful, and kinda funky, X7#9

E7#9, but movable. Root is on the A string, so moves the same as A system barre chords

Everyone loves that chord! I know I do! (also used by Clapton in Cream)
Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god
Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
Out here in the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned
Immaculate.

everybody loves it

it's like, the ultimate funk chord
Last.Fm

“If there was anything that depressed him more than his own cynicism, it was that quite often it still wasn't as cynical as real life.”
― Terry Pratchett

Jeremy Clarkson is a knob.

and don't forget to flat the 9 every now and then!

e|x
B|5
G|7
D|6
A|7
E|x

all of the major and minor triads are very important to know as well, in many positions...

MAJOR TRIADS
e|x--x--x-------6--7--5
B|5--7--6------6--8--7
G|6--7--5------7--7--7
D|7--7--7------x--x--x
A|x--x---x------x--x--x
E|x--x---x------x--x--x

make any of them minor simply by flatting the third. the bolded notes are the root notes. I hope I didn't make any mistakes

X7#9 FTW!

the blues aren't very complicated in chord structure, i think you've pretty much got all you need with dominant, minor, major, minor7, maj7 and a few substitutions and you're set. know the I, IV, V's and get started on perfecting some blues rhythm and you'll be well on your way
