The hendrix chord, a dom7#9no5 chord, can be tuned as an 8:10:14:19 chord = h7,19o10no5. An alternate tuning is 12:15:21:28, or 1/1 - 5/4 - 7/4 - 7/3 = h7z10no5.

It can also be tuned as an essentially tempered chord that splits the difference between the 19/8 ino 10th and the 7/3 zo 10th. This chord tempers out the hendrix comma of 57/56. It is notable for existing in 12-equal, but equal divisions with hendrix chords include, aside from 12, the 9, 10, 14, 16, 17, 21, 22 and 26 equal divisions.
