CGDDAE - Breakfast in the Field

Description

The title track off Michael Hedges' album. Possibly the only piece of music on the planet that has minor and major 11 chords voiced - 1 5 3 9 7 11, and 1 5 3 9 7 #11 on 6 string guitar! This is because these voicing's are impossible in standard tuning, except for the minor 11, which can be played in only 1 position in standard tuning - EBF#GDA fretted E open string, first finger on 5th string 2nd fret for B, third finger on 4th string 4th fret for F#, G open string, second finger on 2nd string 3rd fret for D, fourth finger on 1st string 5th fret for A.
