Hello, please note that i have been into music/guitar for only 2 months now. Ok, i was wondering how to make minor chords, would i take the major scale and flat the 3rd? Example, (cmaj) c d e f g a b, would a c minor be, c d e flat? and same for a dominant 7th minor, would i take a major scale and flat the third then flat the seventh?

It'd be a good idea, to learn/memorize the formulas for all triads and 7th chords.

Triads:
Major - 1,3,5
Minor - 1,b3,5
Augmented - 1,3,#5
Diminished - 1,b3,b5

7th chords:
Major7 - 1,3,5,7
Minor7 - 1,b3,5,b7
Dominant7 - 1,3,5,b7
Minor7 b5 - 1,b3,b5,b7
Minor Major7 - 1,b3,5,7
Diminished7 - 1,b3,b5,bb7
Dominant7 b5 - 1,3,b5,b7
Dominant7 Aug. - 1,3,#5,b7
There's my way and the wrong way.

Anyway yes, you have it right (the formula anyway) it goes like this
Major: 1 3 5
Minor: 1 b3 5
Augmented: 1 3 #5
Diminished: 1 3 b5
Suspended: 1 4 5
Minor7: 1 b3 5 b7
So a Cm7 would be C Eb G Bb

edit: <.< his list is better

Yes, that is correct
