Chord #47 - E+6(9#11)
Today's chord is a stretchy chord - which means I played it with the guitar neck facing toward the ceiling (vertical). I would suggest warming up before attempting this voicing and to always exercise care and caution.
In the words of Mick Goodrick - "No pain is the way to go" or better yet, no hint of pain at all. If you hands are uncomfortable, try this voicing with just the top 4 strings.
For the musical example, I played the chord as a funk-style arpeggio phrase mixing up muted notes and notes that were left ringing (the 16th note line on the fourth beat of the first bar. An alternative fingering for this phrase would be playing the first 3 fretted notes on the 3rd and 4th string and then grabbing the chord shape in the last beat of the first bar.
