    The entire Trower tune I referenced is built upon that iconic minor 7 chord!

    Well, actually a BbMaj 7 chord is a Gm7 chord with a 9 rather than 7.... But, you could play the 7 too! Chord descriptions are just a snapshot in musical time dependant on what's accompaning it.....Let's go make some music!

    I use maj7 and maj9 voicings all the time, even with overdriven tones, and it adds much richness and lushness without sounding like yacht rock.

    Never ever ever thought I would play a Bread song, but now it’s a Cake song, so we’re working it in. :cool:

    Something about this version really sticks with me. Great possibilities for a jam at the end with the E > C.

    (Actually off Pressure Chief, not Fashion Nugget.)

    sharing my new release here since the second track on the EP (and damn near 50% of my songs overall) leverage the maj7 chord - hope you enjoy!
