In this lesson, our instructor Laura Ryan goes through an introduction of seventh chords, or chords composed of 4 different notes. Laura explains the difference between major-major, major-minor, minor-minor, half diminished, and fully diminished seventh chords. She also discusses how to form each type of chord, with demonstrations on both the staff and keyboard.
A seventh chord has an added third on top of the fifth in a triad.
Major Seventh Chord labeled simply FM7
Major/Minor Seventh Chord labeled F7
Minor/Minor Seventh Chord labeled Fm7
Half diminished Seventh Chord labeled F07 (with a slash through the 0)
