Chord #10 - Amin6/7(9)

I encountered some difficulty in naming this chord because I don't typically see both the 6th and 7th in a chord name. If the F# was in a higher register, I would have named this a 13th chord instead. Nevertheless, putting naming conventions aside - this is a cool Dorian voicing. Again, I used the open strings to contrast with the low register fretted notes.

The line here is an arpeggio type idea that starts off looking like a F#dim triad going into a GMaj7 arpeggio. In modal settings, it's useful to design lines based off the diatonic triads or seventh chords from the scale and not just thinking from the chord tones and tensions.
