Example2 Close voic­ings in a Latin fu­sion groove

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

These close voic­ing shapes are on the top four strings, built in 3rds R-3-5-7, they sound sweet and har­mo­nious. They’re great for light rhythm gui­tar play­ing in all styles and are all de­rived from the top of Shape 1 in the CAGED sys­tem. Play the m7 chord us­ing 4-2-2-1, the sec­ond fin­ger cov­ers two strings to en­able you to stretch fur­ther when play­ing lower down the gui­tar neck.

m7b5 The chord is nor­mally played us­ing 4-3-2-1 (with a fourth fin­ger stretch)

m7b5 but the F# in Bar 4 sounded too high up around the 15 fret, so I dropped it an oc­tave and used an open string in the voic­ing.
