It's the raise the roof chord. When you raise the 7th, you raise da roof.
You mean raised it is a B or its normally a B?

If its raised to a B then its a C7Major chord. if its Raised from B to C then its just a C chord

B sharp is C.
so its C E G C
Which is Cmajor

C E G B Is Cmajor7

im not following you. Look at the link ive provided. As far as I can tell its a 7th chord in 2nd inversion. My job is to place it in its correct form then identify it.

C, E, G, B make a C Maj 7th triad.....but the B is #......what is it?

C E G B Is Cmajor7

So if B# is simply C......then the chord is C, E, G, C? Wtf is that?
I read it wrong. The C is sharp.....my mistake, God I was frustrated as hell
EDIT: Ah! I see the C# now too, so you have a completely new chord. By the way, try to simply edit your posts instead of double posting.

That's what I'm guessing. I'm not finding any type of 7th chord that has a only a raised seventh.

Here its the second problem. Its also in second inversion right?

if you guys look at the second row in the middle....what inversion is that and what chord is it?

Its on the bass clef

You alright Xiaoxi?

Only got about 2 hours of sleep, so NOPE!
Strange looking inversion right there because you have the root on the top and the 7th as the bass. I want to say that's a third inversion chord because what really matters is what's placed in your bass and not where the root is.

But a reminding rule of thumb for you is: bass =/= root.

EDIT: We're not doing your homework for you are we?

Its in second inversion (4/3)

Augmented 7ths exist, but they are rare and pointless for someone who is at the level of having to do that sheet. Its honestly probably just a typo

I don't even know why but this was so funny to me when I first read it

yup i think he means in notation, the lowest note (C) being on the ledger line below the treble clef.

as for why the hell B would be sharp (haha i actually didn't mean to do that), there's no point. it's enharmonically the same and while some things matter enharmonically, this doesn't, UNLESS, maybe, it's taken as part of a piece where say your in D minor in this case, and one voice is going down from tonic towards dominant (8-7b-6b-5), and the other voice is going upwards and so has a sharpened 7 (5-6-7-8).

i think it's probably a typo or your teacher trying to figure out if you'll be able to work out the correct answer. come to think of it he might be testing you to figure out what you'd read it as if this did come up in a context like the one i said.

Yeah I thought it was tablature at first 'til I recognized the sharp.

The chord is C#m7b5 in 2nd inversion.

Chord on the bass cleff (if I'm looking at the correct one) is CbM7 in 3rd inv.
