Our Major Seventh voicings contain the root, the third, and the major seventh.
they can be played with a 6th string or 5th string root.
G Maj7


or
C Maj7


The lowest note in these voicings is the root,and it tells you what chord you are playing. When played on the 3rd fret, these are GMaj7 and CMaj7. If you move to the fifth fret, they become AMaj7 and DMaj7. Note the ease in which you can play any Major 7th chord you want, with no major adjustments required.
