f# d#g# a c# f#

Taking f# as your root.... D# = 6 G#= G. A=3 C# = 5

So its a crazy hard way to play a F# maj6

Thats my quick way looking at it

201122, difference being a lower A. I think this is a (weirdo) minor not major though. GP calls it F#m6add9 but I'm not a theorist

I'm just trying to make a chord file I'm going to post, and I want people to be able to understand it. I'll just diagram the chords used in the song at the beginning of the file incase the names are incorrect.

well...I'm looking to find an easier option for that chord (F#maj6??) likewise, I don't know what to call this [668876] I would call the latter one a D#/A#minor5.

Ebm/Bb in the key of Db

D sharp minor/A sharp in other major keys.

I've given you two voicings for that chord already. And it's not F#maj6. It's F#m69. Read, and understand.

The ignorance of noobs on this board is fucking unbelievable.

Topic starting noob.... a chord begins with a root... then you generally have a 3th. Its either a flat or a normal 3th. If its a normal 3th its major, if not its minor. You have a 5th, but not necessarily. And that would make your triad. See.... simple right.. 1 3 5 is major, 1 b3 5 is minor.

So C E G is major, C Eb G is minor.

Now if you want to make that a major 7th you add the 7th degree

C E G B

or 1357

when you know your major scales in every key you can solve the problems you have instantly...

the 9th is the same as the 2nd. 11th is the same as the 4th..

now start counting and never open topics like this again. Thanks

PS. not every chord begins with a root, but for this time... lets say they do

Honestly, I would just omit the fifth. Try this:
