This time the chords are voiced with the bend on top. I have taken the root and the fifth and placed them on the bottom. In example 1, the D and the A are the high notes in the first chord. In this example, the D and the A are the low notes of the chord. The result is a very warm sound. Notice the A7th starts with the chordal tone and bends out and the same with the final D chord. The interest in the phrasing is created by using the two different techniques (bending in and bending out).
