Ok, so I have to read this sheet music and throughout the music next to the chords are things like this...

Ex: D(no 3)/C


I'm guessing it means not to add the third, but I dunno if it means a major, or minor third or if that's what it means at all.

other Ex: Am7b 5

Again, I guess add the fifth?


any help with understanding this? thanks

p.s - anyone know where I can find a good chord chart?

Sorry don't know about the first one, but an Am7b5 would be an A minor 7th with a diminished 5th (1 b3 b5 b7).

Well for the first one Im guessing that you take out the 3rd in that chord. Withough a 3rd in a chord, you cannot have a major or a minor for the fact that it cant be flatted. Also, the C on that chord means that you add it underneath. Im guessing you would fret the 3rd fret on the A string to make it a C.

For the second one, its actually Am7b5. That means to make your Am7 chord, then to take the 5th of that chord, and flat it.

I think I got it all.

the D(no 3)/C --> means that you just take he third out a of a chord..soo... a D Major chord consist of D, F#, A ...the F# is the third that you take out...if it says no 3 then just take it out ... there is no min/maj 3rd in this case because your eliminating the 3rd all together

the Am7b5 --> means that you take the fifth of the chird which is an E and make it flat... a minor seventh chord is spelled 1, b3, 5, b7..so in this case its A, C, E, G, but since ts and Am7b5 then its A, C, Eb, G
