Im having trouble with a specific chord in lenny by SRV. Its actually the very first chord in the song. On tabs it would be:

9
9
8
9
7


This doesnt seem possible to me, because I dont have 5 fingers haha. Obviously there is a way to play it, any one care to help me with the fingering? Its driving me nuts.

I know SRV used to use his thumb a lot to bar bass notes of chords. Try doing that if it's not too awkward. =)

Got it, I think the post was just deleted, but I wasnt barring the two top 9's properly, its just kinda an awkward chord to play at first. I cant wait till I nail this song.

haha yeah i did delete my post as i wasnt 100% sure right on how you diagramed it, and didn't want to look like a fool

so i'll say it again: barre the two 9's on the higher strings and your sorted tbh

9 \ Barre

That should work....unless by "i don't have 5 fingers" you actually mean you're missing fingers. in which case...wow
