The E minor 7th add 11 or "Em7add11" chord is the chord you play when you strum your guitar open without pressing any strings down.   It doesn't sound like much when you do that but the importance of this chord is that you can use it to buy time between other chords if you need to so that you can move your fingers to the next position.   It also makes the song sound more full and flowing.

Try it on some of your songs that have dead spots between chord changes and see if it improves things.
