Break Free from "Normal" Chords 14

I have not put a fingering for this shape because I play it in at least three different ways depending on context.

In the soundfile demonstration I am leaving out the note in brackets and simply moving an open D7 shape up to fret 6.

The example is a nice variation on a standard A7 - D7 - G7 turnaround in the key of C.

By using this shape and 2 different A7 shapes we get a melodic line over 2 bars while keeping a chordal sound ( basically A7 ).

In a different context try using the full shape shown below along with an open D minor.
