Live365 Radio VIP Club – Start Your Free Trial!

The major 7th chords are a very smooth sounding. They are also very easy to make from the major scale. You are only adding one note to a major chord.

Two Chords in One

This chord is actually a combination of a major chord and a minor chord.

The C maj7 chord notes are C-E-G-B

The C major chord notes are C-E-G

The E minor chord notes are E-G-B

This applies to all major chords. If you make a minor chord(Minor 3rd + Major 3rd) from the 3rd of a major chord and add it to the major you will have a major 7th chord.

There are two notes which are common in both chords. If you didn’t understand the major and minor 3rds check out these pages to learn about them.

What are the requirements to run Joomla! 1.5?

What are the requirements to run Joomla! 1.5?
Written by robert griffith

Joomla! runs on the PHP pre-processor. PHP comes in many flavours, for a lot of operating systems. Beside PHP you will need a Web server. Joomla! is optimized for the Apache Web server, but it can run on different Web servers like Microsoft IIS it just requires additional configuration of PHP and MySQL. Joomla! also depends on a database, for this currently you can only use MySQL.

Many people know from their own experience that it’s not easy to install an Apache Web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP, WAMP, and MAMP are easy to install distributions containing Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl for the Windows, Mac OSX and Linux operating systems. These packages are for localhost installations on non-public servers only.The minimum version requirements are:

  • Apache 1.x or 2.x
  • PHP 4.3 or up
  • MySQL 3.23 or up

For the latest minimum requirements details, see Joomla! Technical Requirements.

The Ionian Sharp 5 Mode…for Maj7♯5 Chords

Follow @learnguitarasap

The Ionian sharp 5 mode will give you a scale to use for major 7th chords with a raised 5th. Not a real common chord but you may run across it in your musical journey.

Some scales or modes may sound very strange to you at first as with some chords, You have to develop an ear for these new sounds. Rock and roll sounded strange to many people when it first came out.

This Mode comes from the third note of the harmonic minor scale.

Here are a couple maj7♯5 chord diagrams

Here is this mode played against a Cmaj7♯5 chord. Mode notes only.

The C Ionian sharp 5 mode played against a C major 7th sharp 5 chord

It has an out of tune sound to it but this type chord changes fast.

Ionian ♯5 Mode List

As with the other modes the D♯ and E♭ are the same scale just written different.

The Ionian ♯5 Formula

1-2-3-4-♯5-6-7

An easy one the Ionian mode is the same as the major scale except you have to raise the 5th one fret.

Do You Need HelpReading Music Notes on Staff

Learning what note each line and space are will have you reading music notes on staff quickly.

The staff consists of 4 spaces and 5 lines.

The musical alphabet is A-B-C-D-E-F-G thats it.

There are flats and sharps we’ll learn about later.

bass-clef-symbol-2.gif

Treble or G Clef Staff

A clef sign tells you what pitch the music is written in.

The treble clef is used for singing and many musical instruments.

The spaces spell face from the bottom up. This will be known as an F major 7th arpeggio later on.

There was a saying for the lines to help remember this by reading from the bottom up – Every Good Boy Does Fine.

In both cases what you are doing is skipping a note. A to C, B to D, C to E and so on. This is also how chords are made.

If you go from a line to the next space you don’t skip a note. The same is true if you go from a space to the next line.

Bass or F clef staff

The bass clef is what you see in piano or keyboard music. This what they play with their left hand while playing the treble clef with their right hand.

The next image will tie the two staffs together.

The Grand Staff
Both Staffs Together

There are 3 new note positions. Middle C is actually an invisible line that runs between the two staff. The wide space between the two makes it easier to read.

The other two notes are D that goes on the bottom of the bottom treble clef line and the B which goes on the top of the top bass clef line.

They staffs are usually tied together on the left side with a bracket.

More Notes – Reading Music Notes on Staff

There are other notes above the treble clef and below the base clef.

The guitar pitch range stops on the 2nd space down from the top on the bass clef. This is our 6th string E note.

Higher and Lower Pitches
Reading Music Notes on Staff

There are other notes above and below these notes. In other words there is a lower staff and a higher staff or used to be.

You will only have to be concerned about the treble clef but I think this will help you understand notation easier.

The Lower Notes

This is how you will see these notes most of the time in guitar books, they don’t use the bass clef.

I used it to show you how and where notes come from.

Count the Spaces and Lines

If you don’t know what a note is you can count the spaces and lines to find out.

The space on the bottom of the treble clef is a D. Look at the E note above and count each space and each line as one note going backwards

Did you come out right? The same will work above the staff but the top space is a G and you count them forward

If you look at the E above you see 3 lines above it. If you look at the E in the bass clef you will see 3 lines above that too.
One on the F, A and C notes

The rest of the notes are similar. If the note has a line through it the note is on a line. If it doesn’t have a line through it. It is written on a space.

The Upper Notes
Reading Music Notes on Staff

Just like below the treble clef there are note above it in a staff similar to the bass clef but higher

I don’t know the name of this upper staff we don’t use it except for now to show you where these notes come from.

The high C on the right would be played on the 1st string 20th fret.

If a solo was to be played in this high range it would be written one octave lower with a symbol 8Va, which means play one octave higher for easier reading and writing.

Low E to Middle E
Reading Music Notes on Staff

Here is where you can play the low to middle E notes.

If you play an acoustic guitar you really won’t be able to play anything but single notes past the 14th fret.

The frets get very close past the 15th fret

Middle E to High E
Reading Music Notes on Staff

Here is where you can play the middle E to high E Notes

The Vb and Va

When a lot of the music in a song needs to be played in a high pitch a lot of time the music will be written an octave lower.

This makes it easier to read. They will use the symbol to tell you that the music is to be played an octave higher. This symbol means an octave lower.

The a after the v means higher and the b means lower. The 8 stands for an octave 8 notes.

Reading the Tab

The Bottom line is the 6th string, heavy E and the other lines are the other strings up to the high E. The numbers are the fret numbers.

I hope you found this page useful.

Guitar ChordsRight Out of Your Head

Guitar chords is our chord section of Learn Guitar asap. Here you can learn to make guitar chords without using a chord book. It fairly easy to do. This is also a good way to get more familiar with the guitar neck.

Chord books are good to use but they don’t have all the possible ways to play a chord. If you learn how to make chords you can come up with some unique voicings, combining fretted notes and open strings.

I find that making a chord book also gets you more familiar with where the notes are on the fretboard. You should also write the note names along with the finger placement. This will help a lot later on for arpeggio’s and improvising.

All you need is a Chord Diagram Blank. Right click and save to your computer then print out as many as you need. Punch some holes and put in a notebook.

Major Scale Chords

7 Notes – 7 Chords

Every major scale has 7 basic chords, 3 major, 3 minor and 1 diminished.

Every major and minor chord are in three different scales. The C major chord is in the keys of C, F and G. It is a I chord in the C scale, a IV chord in the G scale and a V chord in the F scale.

Chord Making Table

The top row is the C major scale in two octaves. We need two octaves to name chords and other notes.

In the middle row are the numbers the we will use for naming different chords. Not all these numbers are used but I put them there to make it clearer.

The bottom row has Roman Numerals that we will use for each chord. The upper case is for Major chords and the lower case is for minors.

You can write out chord progressions using these Roman Numerals and you will be able to play them in any key as long as you know the chords in the keys. This isn’t too hard to do.

Need help finding the notes on your guitar fretboard? This will open in a new window so you can go back and forth easier.

Making Guitar Chords

What we do to make a chord is use every other note. The triad is a basic three note chord, the root of all guitar chords. We will make a three note chord for each of the seven notes of the major scale.

Scale Note

Chord Notes

Chord Type

To get a complete understanding of the triads and the chord building process check out the page below.

This is how all chords are built and it’s pretty easy to understand.

Beginner Guitar Chords

Here is a list of all the triads in all the major scales

Major Scale Chord Triads

This is the beginning of making chords, you can keep adding notes. The most common chords after triads are 4 note chords. These are mostly 7th chords like C7 or Dm7. The extra notes add a little “color” to the chords.

Major Scale – Chord Formulas

All of these guitar chords and any others that we make will be referenced to the major scale.

In other words the formula to build a minor chord would be 1 3b 5.

The 3 is flat because the major scale has a major third not a minor third or 3b. This is just a tool for making chords and has nothing to do with keys although there are similarities.

All chords are referenced this way to make things simple, instead of trying to make a chord from the 2 or 5. It would get confusing because we have numbers in a lot of our chord names.

Most chords are made by stacking major and minor thirds together, every other note. If you are having trouble understanding how these chords are being made you should go to the music intervals page. also check out the Chord Formulas Page

Chord Symbols

Most written music and tab uses symbols for guitar chords so they can be written easier. I’m not talking about chord diagrams I’m talking about a chord symbol like E7+9 or Cmaj7. Here is a page on how to read chord symbols.

How to Make Chords

Here is a page that shows you how to make chords from the major scale in more detail than the above paragraph.

Chromatic ScaleEvery Note Included

Hover your mouse over headers, links and marks for more info.

Hover your mouse over headers, links and marks for more info.

The chromatic scale is probably the easiest scale to remember but not the easiest to play because of moving out of position from the beginning positions.

This is a good scale for finger exercise. This will help you to switch strings smoothly while staying in time. Just practice slow even notes. You don’t want to be able to hear when you switch strings. Speed will come with accuracy.

Sharps and Flats

All the rules of writing music go out the window when it comes time to write chromatic and other symmetrical scales as you can see below

There is no standard an A flat could be written as a G sharp or vice versa. Here is the C chromatic.

There is actually only one chromatic scale you just start on a different note, All the notes are in this scale

C Chromatic Ascending 6th string

C Chromatic Ascending 5th string

This is similar to the last one. The same moves. The next one after this is different.

C Chromatic Ascending 4th String Start

The difference happens between the 3rd and 2nd string because these two string are tuned a major 3rd apart instead of a fourth

C Chromatic Ascending 3rd string

With the ascending scale we moved down one fret except between strings 2 and 3. With the descending scale we will move up one fret except for strings 2 and 3.

C Ascending Audio Example

Flash

QuikTime

Windows Media

For the example up above I combined the first and last scale samples to make a two octave audio

Descending Chromatic Scales

We’ll start backwards from the first section starting on the high E string. The reverse of the last ascending scale.

C Chromatic Descending 1st String Start

C Chromatic Descending 2nd String Start

C Chromatic Descending 3rd String Start

C Chromatic Descending 4th String Start

C Descending Audio Example

Flash

QuikTime

Windows Media

Chromatic Audio Example

Here’s a sample of how to use this scale. We’ll use a G to C Chord change

I had to leave out a note or two to get it to fit but you got the idea right. Just another tool to make your leads or rhythm guitar more interesting.

Rhythm guitar players use notes and chords. Listen to how the Rolling Stones guitar players work the rhythm and leads together.

Flash

QuikTime

Windows Media

You can hear this scale in Blues songs when going from the I to the IV chord, usually when comping with short chords sometimes refered to as “Fat” chords because of their full sound.

I’ll be adding more on comping and “Fat” chords later in the Chord section of the site.

Easy Acoustic Guitar Songs

Discover some easy acoustic guitar songs. The acoustic guitar has a sound that you can’t get from an electric guitar.

You can hear acoustic guitar in many rock songs like The Who’s “Behind Blue Eyes” and The Eagles use them in just about all their songs.

This is one reason why many players use acoustic guitars in the studio.

Many of the acoustics nowadays have transducer pick-ups under the saddle, making them easier to use live instead of using a microphone to amplify them.

Although some players still prefer to mike them than to use the electronic pick-up for tone reasons.

Horse with No Name

Writer – Dewey Bunnell – Group – America

This song was recorded using an odd-ball tuning which we won’t use

These chords will be close enough so you won’t have to retune your guitar

A Little Chord Lesson

The reason the Dmaj6/9 chord is different from the D6/9 is the Dmaj6/9 has a major 7th in it. The C sharp on the 5th string.

Any time a chord has a major 7th in it. The name of the chord will always have a maj in its name no matter what else is in the chord.

A major 7th is one half step or one fret back from the root. Usually an octave up from the root.

You should mute the 6th string except when playing the chorus, otherwise you get a muddy sound.

This is really one of the easy acoustic guitar songs you will run across.

Here are links for an mp3 download and digital sheet music of this song in case you want to add it to your collection
