Steve and Michael, I was wondering how you guys go about playing chords, i.e. what finger configuration do you use for Maj7, Min7, Dom7, MajMin7, Min7b5? Currently what I do to finger a CMaj7 chord, is to place my middle finger on the C, index finger on the E and pinky on the B, to play a C7 I pick up the pinky and use the third finger for the Bb, to play a C-7, I place my index finger on the Eb, middle finger on the C and third finger on the Bb. Depending on the situation I'll strum with my thumb or I'll pick with thumb, index and middle finger of the right hand. I'm playing a five with a high C and usually do this higher up the neck where the stretch isn't as great. What do you guys do?
