Here you go.

You have a set of 7 notes that belong to a key.
They make up a plain Jane Major scale.
Here's a plain Jane C Maj scale in two octaves -

C D E F G A B (C) d e f g a b (C)

Form ANY chord by starting on ANY scale degree and playing
EVERY OTHER note. ie -

Start on C (the first note) and play every other note,
you get C E G. That's the ONE chord (I chord).

Start on F (the 4th note) and play every other note,
you get F A C. That's the FOUR chord (IV chord)

Start on A (the 6th note) and play every other note,
you get A C E. That's the SIX chord (vi chord).

If you want 7th chords, you add a note above all that
which is again one instance of the EVERY OTHER NOTE rule.
C E G B = CMaj7
F A C E = FMaj7
A C E G = Am7

If you want 9th chords, you add a note above that 7th chord
which is again one instance of the EVERY OTHER NOTE rule.
C E G B D = CMaj9
F A C E G = FMaj9
A C E G B = Am9

Nothing magical. You're only "allowed" to use notes from
the scale that belongs to the key you are in. ie if you're
in the key of C, you're only allowed to use C D E F G A or B.

Do the same thing in the key of Eb. Here's the scale -

Eb F G Ab Bb C D (Eb) f g ab bb c d (Eb)

The I chord is Eb G Bb (Eb chord)

The IMaj7 chord is Eb G Bb D (EbMaj7)

The vi7 chord is C Eb G Bb (Cm7)

The V13 chord is Bb D F Ab C Eb G (Bb13)

Start on a scale degree (I, ii, iii etc).
Use ONLY notes which belong to the key.
Play EVERY OTHER note to form the chord.
If a chord has a number after it (7, 9,11 or 13) it
presumes that all the appropriate numbers BELOW it
are present. ie, 9th chords have 7ths included. 13th chords
have 7ths, 9ths and 11ths included.

If the chord requested is altered, simply apply the requested
alteration. ie a sharp 9 chord is a 9th chord (including the 7th)
but the 9th note is sharped a half step. The remainder of the
chord is as expected. It follows the "rules".

Chords are no big deal. It's simple math based on 7 notes.
It's NOT a book with "10,000 essential chords for the guitarist".

Lump

And that is what PT should have posted in his post on cords.

Fake Ed

I think PT was trying to provoke an OT thread. In that, I think he
succeeded. It's Usenet. You get what you pay for. :-)

I'm always "beginning" at something. Right now my nephew is beginning to
annoy me. I'm beginning to study classic Country solos etc...

BTW: Who uses chord books anymore? Take them to the used book store and
sell
them. The internet is making printed material obsolete.- Hide quoted

do you keep a laptop in your guitar case ? e

===

Just about everywhere I need to look up a chord there is a computer. When
I'm on stage (in my dreams) I better already know it.

I'm gettting a Mac laptop. Always wanted one. Bucket List.- Hide quoted text -
