A Bunch of Guitar Bully

September 30, 2015

E_7s9

Above (from adamsguitars) are various examples (voicings) of the E7(#9) chord. The chord, while made famous by Jimi Hendrix (Purple Haze), is a popular jazz chord used through the ages. Other examples are the distinctive twang used by The Beatles’ “Taxman” and use in the so-called novelty song “Wolly Bully” by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs. The main part of the song uses the standard I, IV, V – E, A, B progression.

Wooly Bully – SSP – 1965

and on a different note (B7; a good ole blues chord):
