Talk like a pro ! Use the fact that musicians do not mention the major chord like C major,
we only say: C, however the “minor”, “seventh” and others are still listed.
Exceptions for seventh chords:
for major seventh CM7 (pronounced C major seven)
for minor seventh: Cm7 (pronounced C minor seven)
and C minor chords: Cm (pronounced C minor).

About major, minor, seventh chords

We are talking about major, minor , seventh, etc… Which differences ?
A major chord consists of 3 notes:

  • the first note is the tonic e.g. the first note of the scale : it gives the general tone of the chord.
  • the second note is the third e.g. the third note of the scale.
  • the third is the fifth e.g. the fifth note of the scale.

Examples for C chords:

Major chord : play C(1) – E(3) – G(5) The seven notes of the C scale are = C(1), D(2), E(3), F(4), G(5), A(6), B(7).

Minor chord: play: C(1) – E flat(3) – G(5) the third of the chord, is lowered = E dropped a half ton = E flat (shift one fret to the top from E).
See another example with the D and D minor chords above (the green finger is moving up in D minor).

Seventh chord: play C(1) – E(3) – G(5) – B flat(7) B flat is added ( B(7) yes… the seventh !).
CAUTION: B lowered by one semitone = B flat (shift one fret to the top from B)
