Fmaj7#11 Guitar Chord Lesson

In this post, you will be learning how to play the Fmaj7#11 guitar chord (also known as Fmaj7(#11)).  This chord sounds a lot more difficult than it really is.  It is not really an advanced chord, but I wouldn’t classify it as a beginner one either.  It is sort of in between your basic open chord and a barre chord.  This is a beautiful sort of dark and dreamy sounding chord.

The Fmaj7#11 chord is found by locating the 1, 3 , 5, 7 and #11 positions (F, A, C, E and B) of the F Major Scale: F G A Bb C D E .  See the chord chart below.

Chord Playing Tips: Be sure that you are pressing down on the strings hard enough. You should play each string one at a time to make sure you have a nice clean sound. If any of the strings buzz or sound muted, then something is not right.
