Cool, yeah seeing the intervals and note names on the neck makes reworking chords like this much easier then if someone is struggling to find the notes on the fretboard.

Seeing a chord as 1 3 5 rather than just a shape is a big step in the learning process of any guitarist, well worth working on when first starting out on the instrument and exploring the theory behind what you're playing

Yeah, man it's important to get rid of shapes even though our instrument is built in such a way that it favors shapes, as opposed to a piano for instance or a wind instrument smile.gif

I love those three-note chords that you showed.

One version that Joe Diorio showed me way back when I was in school was to plane them across the neck, get's a very cool "slippery" sound, and only uses one shape for the ii V I progression

Dm7 xx556x - Dm11 sound
G7 xx889x - G7alt sound
Cmaj7 xx778x - C6 sound

Thanks for reminding me of that one. Which reminds me of this one, possibly stolen from Diorio(?)
Dm7 xx556x
G7 xx889x
C xx 12 12 13 x

I like it because of it's m3/M3 motion (also works as an extended/altered ii-V-I in Eb ... which I did get from Diorio - any ii-V can be sub'd with a ii-V a minor 3rd up).

*Matt, did you go to MI or USC?

Another great chord sequence!

I went to McGill in montreal and Joe came for a masterclass so I got to study with him there. Learned a ton in a short amount of time.
