Chord #33 - FMaj7(no 3rd)
This chord uses a minor 2nd interval in the voicing to create a beautiful effect when arpeggiated. The chord does not contain the 3rd, so it can be used for both an FMaj7 or a FminMaj7 chord.
For the musical example, I played a I-VI-IV-V progression: FMaj7-Dmin7(11)-BbMaj7(#11)-C7(9)-C(add4).
This example reminds me of Joe Satriani's Always with Me, Always With You arpeggio guitar part. I can picture this example being used to accompany a soloist during an open improvised section.
