Jon demonstrates these piano style chords with unusual voicing’s as follows; Gm7 (G minor seven), 10th fret of the 5th string with 4th finger, 8th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger, 7th fret of the 3rd string with 2nd finger and 6th fret of the 2nd string with first finger. Next is Gbm7 (G flat minor seven), 9th fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger, 7th fret of the 4th string with 2nd finger, 9th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and 7th fret of the 2nd string with first finger. When switching from the Gm7 to the Gbm7 is that the melody is going up and the bass is going down, which is referred to as contrary motion. Next chord is Fm9 (F minor nine), 8th fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger, 6th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger, 8th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and 8th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger. Next is E7, 7th fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger, 6th fret of the 4t string with first finger, 7th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and 9th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger. And finally EM9b5 (E major nine flat five), 6th fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger, 5th fret of the 4th string with first finger, 7th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and 6th fret of the 2nd string with 4th finger. Guitar TAB’s are available at GuitarControl.com.
Contrary motion is where you have one melody note going down and another melody going up at the same time.
