This emphasis on voice leading is often what makes the playing of these progressions so beautiful. Here's a progression similar to Dave Navarro's intro to "My Friends" by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The fingerings for this are:
D
Fmaj7
G/B
Cadd9
So what's that chord on the end? Why, it's our trusty Cadd9 chord. Here's yet another example of how the add9 chord can be used to create nice voice leading.
