Minor7 voicings give the basic minor triad a little more class by achieving a richer sound.

The minor7 chord is based on a minor triad while adding the 7th note a whole step below the root up the octave.

I use these chords a lot and they sound great. Again, the red numbers symbolize root notes. Roots occur in most of these shapes except one.
