R-b3-#5 = _maug, Right?
whats the difference between a 7th, m7th, and a Dom7th?
is there a set shape for an 11th?
what chord does this make: Db, Ab, F, C, G, Eb?
what is the most commonly used scale in metal?


please help if you can, or direct me somewhere....thank you

Maj7th - 1 - 3 - 5 - 7. (Cmaj7 = C - E - G - B)

Min7th - 1 - b3 - 5 - b7. (Cmin7 = C - Eb - G - Bb)

Dom7th - 1 - 3 - 5 - b7. (C7 - C - E - G - Bb)

... are the differences between a major, minor and dominant 7th chord.

R, b3, and #5 will most likely sound like an inversion. In A the notes would be A, C, and E#. E#=F. So it's an inversion of F major (F, A, C).

There are common shapes for 11th chord, but not one set shape.

Db, Ab, F, C, G, Eb? Depends on what note you are using as the root.

Most common scale in metal is probably natural minor.

1. A root, b3rd and #5th is actually a major chord, but not in root position. Say the notes are A C F (R b3 #5). That is an F major chord in first inversion. If you do want to write it with the root position name, it would be a minor add b13 chord.

2. Answered above

3. No, there are no 'set shapes' for any chords.

4. I'd call it a Dbmaj9(#11)

5. Natural minor, harmonic minor, chromatic, minor modes (predominantly phrygian, but occasionally dorian), modes of harmonic (mostly for phyrgian dominant) amd occasionally melodic minor.

R-b3-#5 = _maug, Right?

I'd call that a first inversion of the #5 note. For example: If the root (R) is A, you'd have A C E#, right? Since E# is enharmonically the same pitch as an F, you'd get A C F, and we all know that's an F chord

whats the difference between a 7th, m7th, and a Dom7th?

See John

is there a set shape for an 11th?

What do you mean? The formula? 1 3 5 b7 9 11
You can omit the 5 and 9

what chord does this make: Db, Ab, F, C, G, Eb?

Abmaj13, or Dbmaj9#11, or F9(b13) are some names for it

what is the most commonly used scale in metal?

That really depends on the kind of metal.. But Phrygian, Harmonic Minor, Phrygian Dominant and Aeolian are used often.

I think I understand what you mean.

C7: (Or any other 7 with root note on the A-string)

e 3
B 5
G 3
D 5
A 3<---Root note
E x

or:

C7: (Or any other 7 with root note on the E-string)

e 8
B 8
G 9
D 8
A 10
E 8<---Root note

--

Cm7: (Or any other m7 with root note on the A-string)

e 3
B 4
G 3
D 5
A 3<---Root note
E x

or:

Cm7: (Or any other m7 with root note on the E-string)

e 8
B 8
G 8
D 8
A 10
E 8<---Root note

or:

Cm7: (Or any other m7 with root note on the E-string)

e 8
B 11
G 8
D 10
A 10
E 8<---Root note

--

I think it's like this, not quite sure. EDIT: Yeah, I got it right :P
Cdom7: (Or any other dom7 with root note on the A-string)

e 3
B 4
G 4
D 5
A 3<---Root note
E x

or:

Cdom7: (Or any other dom7 with root note on the E-string)

e 8
B 8
G 8
D 9
A 10
E 8<---Root note

--

Just move the shapes around on the fretboard

EDIT: Change the root note to G, to make everything G, B to make it B etc.

Chillern is wrong with the last patterns, those are min/maj7 chords. (the ones "under I think it's like this, not quite sure. EDIT: Yeah, I got it right")

For clarification: Every dom7 chord is the same as a 7 chord. Gdom7 = G7
