dammit... yeah, what i meant to say was to not have the root note be the bass note.... an inversion. damn, i wish i knew what i was saying before i clicked that "submit reply" button....

lol, yeah no root in a chord..... bah. dont know what the hell i meant.

Looking for my India/Django.

Ok, chord extensions are a little more complex. There's also a LOT of them around. Here are many of the ones I use most often. Bear in mind, I didn't write down 11ths and 13ths and many other polychords (I hate these!) and the such. Oh, and don't forget, these degrees are all based of your roots MAJOR scale.


Chord Construction:


Maj: - 1st, 3rd, 5th
Min: - 1st, b3rd, 5th
Aug: - 1st, 3rd, #5th
Dim: - 1st, b3rd, b5th


Sus 2: - 1st, 2nd, 5th
Sus 4: - 1st, 4th, 5th


Maj 7: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th
Min 7: - 1st, b3rd, 5th, 7th
Maj 7 #5: - 1st, 1st, 3rd, #5th, 7th
Maj 7 b5: - 1st, 3rd, b5th, 7th
Min 7 b5: - 1st, b3rd, b5th, b7th
Min/Maj 7: 1st, b3rd, 5th, 7th
7: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, b7th
7 Sus: - 1st, 4th, 5th, b7th
7 #5:- - 1st, 3rd, #5th, b7th
Dim 7: - 1st, b3rd, b5th, bb7th
7 b9: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, b7th, b9th
7 #9:- - 1st, 3rd, 5th, b7th, #9th
7 (b5 b9): - 1st, 3rd, b5h, b7th, b9th
7 (b5 #9):- 1st, 3rd, b5th, b7th, #9th
7 (#5 b9):- 1st, 3rd, #5h, b7th, b9th
7 (#5 #9):- 1st, 3rd, #5h, b7th, #9th


6: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th
Min 6: - 1st, b3rd, 5th, 6th


Maj 9: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th
Maj add9: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, 9th
6 9: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 9th
Min 9: - 1st, b3rd, 5th, b7th, 9th
Min add9: - 1st, b3rd, 5th, 9th
Min 6 9: - 1st, b3rd, 5th, 6th, 9th
Min 9 b5: - 1st, b3rd, b5th, b7th, 9th
9: - 1st, 3rd, 5th, b7th, 9th
9 Sus: - 1st, 4th, 5th, b7th, 9th
b9 Sus: - 1st, 4th, 5th, b7th b9th

I apoligize in advanced in case of any errors, someone please check these for me. I'm doing them off memory and chord shapes.

Oh, and I know RedWing already posted the link, but I thought this would be easier to print out. Feel free to do so.
