the g use your index for the 3 on the E string , your middle on the 3 on the B string , your ring finger on the 4 on the G string and your pinky on the 5 on the D string.

For the G and the A chords you'd use your thumb on the low E string, and then index on the B middle on the G and ring on the D.

Lol purple haze ftw, 8 on the b string is pinkey 7 on g is ring 6 on d is index ad the 7 on a is middle. Use your thumb to get the 3 and 5's on the low E string.

Barre the third fret.. pretty simple


And how would he do the pull off?

Don't barre... Use your thumb.

Only pull-off I see is on the B string.. You'd use your ring finger or pinky. Has nothing to do with the barring

Yes, if you lift your pinky off the D string to do the pull-off then you'd be changing the chord from an A to an A7. You can't use your ring finger because your pinky is on the D sting blocking the way. You could shift your hand down and have your middle on the D string and your ring on the G string, but then your index finger doing the barre would also be covering the D note on the A string which would made it an Aadd11 chord, which is also wrong.

I suppose you could over fret with your ring finger to block the A string from ringing, but seriously why bother?

Also, barring would give you that high A note on the E string. when you're playing with distortion or overdrive, you generally want fewer strings ringing.

Finally, it's purple haze. Jimi used his thumb. That's just the way it's meant to be played.

Edit: It's also worth mentioning, if Broagan plans to learn anything else by Jimi, or Stevie Ray Vaughan or guys like that he's going to need to learn to use his thumb. Some of their stuff is impossible to play any other way.

Use your thumb, and if you doubt me, just look up some clips of Jimi playing on youtube.

I didn't bother to read all this but I have some news for you.. It wouldn't require changing the chord to do the pull-off.
