By taking the class and practicing the ideas presented, the student will be able to expand on their 7th chord knowledge and learn new ways of voicing 4 different types of 7th chords in ways that will both be beneficial for their comping as well as having new exotic voicings as options for chord melodies.
In this lesson, Mike demonstrates some less common ways of voicing 7th chords by combining every possible combination of the 1 3 5 7 formula and seeing which ones can line up on the guitar. This will open up a new set of sounds within 7th chords that giving us voicings that are both spread and close intervalically.
The video breaks down mutiple sets of chord voicing’s and presents it in 4 sections by taking you through Major 7, Minor 7, Dominant 7 and Minor 7b5 voicings.

After that Mike demonstrates how to utilize these voicings together in a jazz context by demonstrating 18 different chord combinations that can be used for Major and Minor ii V I’s.
