Watch the Top Shelf online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Evolving Blues Vol. 1
Here we have a ton of cool sounding chords and we stay out of the way of the bass player by keeping on the top 4 strings only. Extended chords on the higher strings really give the progression some depth especially over a nice bass line. So always remember - if you are playing solo, adding bass notes is helpful, but playing with a bass player - try and stay out of his way!
