Nah mate the 6th is major unless otherwise specified. Chord naming always uses the major scale for reference in naming - even if the underlying triad is minor or diminished.

So it would be minor flat sixth. E.G. Amb6 will work fine or FMaj7/A (F major seventh in first inversion.

The notes of Amb6 are A C E F

the notes os Fmaj7 are F A C E So next time some pisses you off tell them their FMaj7 is pretty ugly. Or to shut their FMaj7.

Yeah I think it can really improve your ears more and know what to play over chords better. Your post was very informative by the way , thank you. And thank everyone else for your input on the chord.

Lets say you have a static G minor bar chord root on low E and you play a minor 6th interval over it (Eb)....there is no right way to hear it right? Like how would you know whether to hear it coming off the root or the 5th? Is it just the way you want to hear it?
