Chord #40 - A7sus4(add6)
Today's chord is a variant of some more typical voicings I usually play. I really like the minor 2nd interval between the F# and open G string a lot and having the doubled root in the lowest and highest voices sounded good to me. This voicing could be used as both a dominant chord or a minor chord.
For the musical example, I used a right hand pattern that was inspired by one of Villa Lobos etudes. Instead of having a pattern using all six strings my pattern uses the string skipping pattern (5,5,4,2,3,1) followed by (3,2). This is a rather new pattern for me and it felt like a nice addition to my 4/4 fingerstyle pattern repertoire.
The actual progression felt very Joni Mitchell inspired particularly when I go to the FMaj7 chord in the last bar.
