I really dont understand how to just take the regular chord and then turn it into a 6, 7, or 9. Is there a way to do this?

Let's use a simple, cliched example

To find a C major chord.

Take the C major scale: C D E F G A B

Take the forumula for a major chord: 1 3 5

and take the 1st, third, and fifth notes of the scale.

C E G

There's your chord!

If it says to sharpen or flatten a certain scale degree, do so now.

they're extensions built off the major/minor chords

1 3 5 7 9 10 11 13

those are the notes which construct all chords (i think i missed one or two?)

it goes up to 13 but really it's just looped back to 1 after 7 (8 is root, hence no 8).

so for example, M9 would me 1 3 5 7 9, in C, that's C Eb G Bb D

i'm so sorry, i'm a horrible teacher

Chords are built off of thirds, so that would be 1 3 5 7 9 11 13.

add chords are different though. Might want to do a search on them if you are interested

wouldnt it be 1 b3 5 7 9?
Because its minor and minor is 1 b3 5

A minor 9th chord is 1 b3 5 b7 9... A regular minor (seventh) chord also has a minor seventh.

He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.
