Dream Theater’s legendary guitarist John Petrucci revealed his favorite guitar chord. According to the guitarist speaking in an interview made by Cosmo Music, you can see his favorite guitar chord from below.

Here’s the his statement on it:

“It’s the opening chord for ‘Hemispheres’ by Rush – the F# major with an added 4th and the flat 7. That should really be named ‘The Alex Lifeson Chord,’ ’cause he invented that.

“Hemispheres” was released in October 1978 as Rush’s sixth studio record. The chord John talks about is the first note of the opening track “Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres.”
