Slow Motion Tuning (D.G.D.F.C.D)

Any tuning with multiple octaves of a single note allows chord variations by moving fingers among the octaves. Will Ackerman's Slow Motion tuning is no exception. The open position D minor chord, for instance, can be varied in sveral ways...

One quirk of the Slow Motion tuning is the seventh chord form (the second D7 on the chart), which fingers exactly like a 7th chord in Standard tuning. The Fmin7 is also fingered exactly like a Bb major in Standard tuning. Though the fingers remain the same, the sounds are quite different.
