HEy UG! im jst checking if im understanding music theory correctly. So u have minor and major mode scales and they determine what key and what chords you gonna play in your chord sequence. also, if i was to flatten the octave note on a major c, wud it make c7? or have i understood it wrong,,,

Plz tell me if ive understood wrong!

That would make it a Major 7th.

GuitarfailEDIT: If you had double-flatted it, it would have been a C7 (called C dominant 7th).

A flatted seventh would result in a C7 chord. A flatted octave would be a Cmaj7 chord.

Ex. C7: C E G Bb.
Cmaj7: C E G B

If you flat a C in a C major chord (an octave above), you have C E G Cb. You would never see this as a chord. You'd see it as a Cmaj7, which is C E G B. C E G B contains 1 3 5 7. C E G Cb contains 1 3 5 b8. These are different, although enharmonic.

Cmaj7: C E G B (1 3 5 7)
C7: C E G Bb (1 3 5 b7)
Cm7: C Eb G Bb (1 b3 5 b7)
C half diminished 7 -or- Cm7b5: C Eb Gb Bb (1 b3 b5 b7)
C diminished 7 -or- Co7: C Eb Gb Bbb (1 b3 b5 bb7)
