Subject: RE: What the 'F'! The sequel.
The first GMaj7 chord I usually think of is the 3-X-4-4-3-X fingering that M.Ted prefers. Another choice I really like is 7-X-5-7-7-X. This one is really pretty in descending passages like you might find in "Summertime."

These are really jazz chords and as such you should always strive to move from one chord to the next moving as few notes as possible while keeping the general direction—descending vs. ascending—consistent.
