This chord can be played in the place of most minor chords and can replace chord ii, iii and vi in major keys. Minor 11th chords use these degrees of the major scale: 1, b3, 5, b7, 9, 11 though it's really common to leave some notes out - our inversion is missing the 5th and 9th.

Bm11 uses the notes: B, D, F#, A C#, E

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: B, A, D, E, A

Tune in tomorrow for another Guitar Chord Of The Day.
