Category Archives: More About Chords

In these articles we look at what can be done with the basic shapes. We start by looking at how to make the minor chords , then the minor 7th and then the minor 9th and 6th. We then look at extending the major chord by making the maj7th chord and the 6th chords. We then look at how to construct the Dominant 7th on all the pattern shapes including the 2 lesser used shapes of D and G. Finally we look at Dominant 7th cords that omit some of the basic chord building notes.
