A chord symbol, such as CMaj7, usually contains three parts:
• A pitch-letter (such as C) to indicate the key
• The chord type of a major (Ma) or minor (m) key
• The number that indicates the top note of the chord (6, 7, 9, 11, or 13)
Normally, a chord contains the 1, 3, and 5 notes of the key plus one or more extensions
(higher notes in the chord). For example, CMa7 contains the 1, 3, 5, and 7 of C Major (C, E,
G, and B), while a CMa9 chord contains the 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 of C Major (C, E, G, B, and D).
A chord symbol can indicate any of the 12 keys, such as C#, D, Eb, E, etc.
Building Major Chords
A major chord has the 1, 3, and 5 degrees of a major scale. A major 7 chord has the 1, 3, 5,
and 7; a major 9 chord has the 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9; and a major 6 chord has the 1, 3, 5, and 6.
