Chord of the Month


Article from Making Music, September 1987

Minor 7/11th (late night shopping chord)

The problem these days is the memory. Seventeen issues, that’s 17 chords of the month. Can anyone remember if we’ve ever had a minor 7/11th? Does it matter as long as it sounds groovy? Well it does... sound groovy, that is. Index finger as a barre covering the D and E strings, 2nd finger on the A string, 3rd finger on the G string, and pinkie on the B. You can extend the barre to the bottom E, but that seems to cloud the balance to our ears, good with a touch of vibrato, and makes an unnerving beginning to a song. Play it anywhere up the neck.
