So my guitar teacher gave me some 7th chord progressions to learn this week. He's given me a list of all the 7th chords, but the problem is he's given the progressions in the number format (i.e. 2 4 6 5) but neglected to tell me which chord applies to which number.

Could someone help me out with this?

What key are you supposed to be using? The numbers will refer to the scale degrees that form the roots of the chords.
Actually called Mark!

If all else fails, give him a ring and ask him.

I'm sure he'd far more appreciate the fact you're trying to clarify and learn what he asked you to than turn up next lesson without a clue.

G

And I know what the numbers mean, I just don't know which number means which chord.

Like, if I was in the key of G, playing a 1 2 3 progression in major and minor chords, I'd be playing GMaj, AMin, BMin.

Well then It'd look like I haven't been trying to practice these for the last 3 days.

^ Sounds like you know which chords represent each number.

2 4 6 5 in G Major would be

2. Am7
4. Cmaj7
6. Em7
5. D7

Dominant does, yes, it's the 5, or V.
Min7b5 is the 7th, or vii degree. It would be F#m7b5

I don't mind giving you the answers, as long as you understand why the chords are what they are.
