Minor 7th Chords
More Minor 7th chords! In part one we looked at the 4 minor 7th chords in a string group, then flipped a note from low E to high E and made 4 more chords. Now, we’ll look at the same chords presented in a different string group. Like the first Minor 7th article. All the examples will be presented as G Minor 7th (G-Bb-D-F).
The first example shows two different voicings. The first being a Gm7 with D in the bass. Chord charts written as Gm7/D, is another “more modern” way to show the same information. The second example is Gm7 with F in the bass. This one is also the same fingering/sounds like a Bb Major 6 chord.
The next example is the Gm7 most guitar players know and use. The second example is another uncommon, but cool sounding voicing, using Bb (the flat 3rd) as the bass note.
There are many other voicings for these chords. Try to experiment and find ones that you like the most! Get out of using the same chord shape over and over!
