The real beauty of the guide tone theory is simplicity. If you play the 3rd and the flat 7th of any chord as your 1 chord, and move it down one fret, that is your 4 chord - then move it up above the 1 chord by one fret - that is your 5 chord. So it works like that all over the neck! And can really make for a nice addition to just banging out the full barre chords all of the time.
