Your shape is always my favoured one for 7#11 (9#11) chords, but I would either omit the root (if there's a bassist you don't need it) - play top 4 strings only - or if I really want the full version (with 5th too!) wrap my thumb over to fret both bottom strings:

-7- = #11 = middle
-8- = 9 = pinky
-8- = b7 = ring
-7- = 3 = index
-8- = R = thumb
-8- = 5 = thumb

That's a nice rich sound, and I find it a little easier than the barre method described above - but YMMV. (And I wouldn't be going for that in an uptempo tune with fast changes...)
I really like that voicing - haven't played that one before.

Hi Jon...

I've known quite a few drummers who would be issued speeding tickets...
