February 26, 2015 | Minor 7th Chord streams up the neck
We reprised our dominant 7th Chord Streams up and down the fretboard last week.
These are an incredible tool for energizing your blues accompaniment, but don't forget you can do the same thing to minor 7th chords, too. This is a terrific resource for modal jazz in minor keys.
We not only mapped out the inversions, we inserted an appropriate filler chord so you can walk this up the neck.

For you theory geeks, these are Root, 1st inv, 2nd inv, and 3rd inv. Recall, in mandolin chording, the bass note is kind of irrelevant because it's being sound out by a lower instrument in the ensemble. Our point was to let you know with 7th chords, there are only 4 inversions. If you were to go up a hypothetic neck of infinity, each of them would repeat again, 12 frets up (one octave).
Ready for all your Modal jazz standards, including:
