The "Hide Away" Freddy King 11th chord

Weird chord, but great sound.

This is a follow-up to my latest podcast specifically concentrating on just this one chord, because I think it's that cool. And you'll be able to hear where it originally came from.

Above is the first video where I actually show the guitar tab to chords I find interesting. The easy ones are A6 and D7sus2, but the "weird" one is what I call the Freddy King chord, the 11th.

You can hear this chord being played from the original 1961 release of the song Hide Away at the 1:29 mark here:

...and this is Stevie Ray Vaughan playing Hide Away, where at time mark 2:09 you will hear the chord:

...and this is Eric Clapton playing Hide Away, where at time mark 1:27 you hear it:

Ordinarily I wouldn't put so much attention towards just one chord, but this is a good one. It just sounds cool.

For the one I specifically play, you'll notice in my video the web site I used labeled it as a C(#11,add9). I'm assuming that's correct. If it isn't, email me with a correction and I'll post it here.
