Now we will talk about minor 7th chords. Specifically a drop 2 E minor 7th chord with the root on the 5th string. We'll start with the basic voicing of root, 5th, b7th, b3rd, 5th. 

In this case, the common extensions are the b7th (1st string), 11th (2nd string), and the octave (3rd string).

As mentioned on the previous page, by having the pinky free, that finger is able to play the embellishments. In these examples we are catering to what the pinky can grab easily.
