I have diagrammed what I think Mark had in mind.  Mark let me know if it's wrong.  Too bad the proceeding C7 has that high C as the melody note.  If it involved a lower note, we could play some type of C7 with the 3rd an octave lower than what I diagrammed.  I tryed, but I can't make the reach.

Also, I corrected the fingerings of that Dm(maj7), the f and a are double stopped with the 2nd finger, the d note on the d string(12th frt) is with the 3rd finger, to leave the 4th finger available for the b melody note...

That's it exactly. And don't feel too bad about the C7/E being an octave up...the effect still works, and similar effects have been used in organ music, as well as conventional orchestration where, say, the lower strings would be brought in on the I chord... There are psychoacoustic reasons why it will still seem like a linear moving bass line, I've seen articles based on Schachter analysis that would point out that the ear sort of memorizes the F-E-F and doesn't really notice the jump of a maj 7th interval, rather instead senses a sort of strengenthening of the tonic, etc.  Highly disallowed in vocal part writing of the XVIth century, but Bach did stuff like this all the time...

Sorry to sound like an egghead, I'm no professor, and the bottom line is that it works!

For those who were asking about my guitar at the picnic; it's a 1979 Fender Stratocaster with Barden pickups. It's a hard-tail (no whammy bar), and is amazingly light for a 1970s era Fender. I originally bought it because of the weight. Solid ash body and maple fingerboard. The neck has been re-fretted and the fretboard radius was made slightly flatter. It also has the Feiten tuning system. To my ears, the hard-tail strats are a little closer to the Telecaster sound than a regular strat.

Here's a shot of Dan with his Barden loaded, hardtail, 70's strat. It does sound fine!
