Hey my uncle, a professional musician, was telling me some things about how to play some hendrix, and he told me that usually they are tuned in E flat. so i got that, then he said instead of doing barre chords they would do "wrap arounds". idk what that is. he wraps his thumb around to hit the bass/route note, then what is the shape that your other fingers do? please help thnx

Its the same notes as a barre chord. Also, hendrix usually didn't fret the note on the A string when playing wrap-around chords, he muted them instead.

my other fingers were in the form of an 'F' chord. Just slide up the fretboard with that (with the bass note being fretted w/ your thumb) when I do barre chords like that. I usually mute the A string. Whether I play the high e string varies. I don't know if that makes sense, hope it helps.

^When doing this shape, your pinky will be free to do small hammer-ons and pull-offs. This gives you those Hendrix type chord based melodies. There are several others you can do, but I'll leave it up to you to figure them out.
