        (repeat to fade)... 

Please Note: The transition from G6-G7-G9-G11 is very easy with very easy changes between chords. G9 is perhaps the trickiest but becomes very easy with practice.

Make sure you are comfortable with the | G - G6 | G7 - G | G9 - G7 | G11 - G7 | run before playing along with the music as the chord changes occur at a fair rate.
