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 -
