7b5, DI­A­GRAM C ma­jor C ma­jor 9#11 and C ma­jor 13#11 chords IN FIVE SHAPES

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON | FRETBOARD FLUENCY -

The most im­por­tant in­ter­vals in our three IV ma­jor chords are the root; the 3rd (which de­ter­mines the qual­ity of the chord); the 7th (which means any colour tone is then con­sid­ered an ex­ten­sion); and the high­est ex­ten­sion. How­ever, in cer­tain cases, we may have to omit the 7th de­gree with an ‘in­com­plete’ voic­ing that’s more sym­bolic of the full tonal­ity. One ex­am­ple of this can be found on the C ma­jor 13#11 in shape 2, where, start­ing from the fourth string, there sim­ply may not be enough avail­able range for the full chord. On each di­a­gram, the root notes are in­di­cated in black, with the in­ter­vals that make up the spe­cific voic­ing dis­played within the notes.
