Contemporary Guitar 7 – Eugenio Mirti

Notice that you can move up and down the neck   from one position to another on any of the chords. These positions sound incredibly fresh especially if the lowest voice is not the root of the chord. Also notice that the   D7 (and B7 as well) fingering implies b5, b9, #9, and 13.

Here’s an example written on the first 16 measures of “Autumn Leaves”.


Have fun!
