Hi,
I wanted to ask if there is a chord pattern for chords other then the standard major and minor chords. For example for diminished, seventh, maj7, augmented...

Chords in a major scale:
Major 7th
Minor 7th
Minor 7th
Major 7th
Dominant 7th
Minor 7th
Half diminished

Is that what you're asking for?

If you want to use diminished chords, you can put them in between any two chords in these two ways:

1. You can play a diminished chord a half step below the chord you are trying to get to.

example: A7 - Bm would become A7- A#7dim - Bm

2. Put the diminished chord a whole step ABOVE the chord you are trying to get to.

example: Am7 - Gmaj7 would be Am7 - Adim - Gmaj7


Hopefully that makes sense and helps a bit. This isn't exactly using chords within a scale, but rather using chord substitutions. Hard to sum up in two minutes. I'm in between classes at uni right now.


Also I & IV chords can always be replaced by their Maj7 counterpart in a major scale.

See if you can figure it out. Harmonize the scale in thirds and see what you get.

When you say "pattern," do you mean fingering pattern (e.g., as in the "CAGED" system?)

Or are you talking about chord formulas (e.g., 1,b3,5,b7?)

This. This will also make you understand where the "pattern" comes from.

Really helps if you learn the intervals in chord types (e.g. minor is 1,b3,5; dominant 7 (1, 3, 5,b7) and so on), and look at any scale, and see what intervals you can find between every other note in the scale.

Cmajor: C D E F G A B.

So, look at C (skip D) E (skip F) G. Whay intervals are there?
Then D (skip E), F (skip G), A. Whay intervals are there?

etc. Remember, a chord name is short hand for a set of intervals measured from the chord root.

That pattern is the basic chords how they fit into the pattern of the key. You can take every one of those chords, and make every extension possible while only using notes of the key.

I don't think you will find a resource with all of them listed, but if you know your major scale well enough, it's real easy to figure out. It's also something important everyone should play with at some point, but idk if it's the best time for you or not.
