I was reading an article about chord formation and I came across this:

5.0 6th Chords.
To make a 6th chord, start with the triad and add the 6th. But note that the *major 6th* is added to make both major and minor 6th chords - the 'minor' or 'major' bit comes from
the triads. So for a C6 chord, start with a C major triad (CEG) and add the major 6th (A).



Does that mean Cmaj6 is the same as C6?

What if the chord contained a minor 6th? How would it then be labled? Cb6? C6o?
Sorry, I'm new to this.

It would be called Cadd6, Cmaj6, or just C6.

The b6 interval really just isn't used in chords and if it's present (in jazz at least) it's more often than not a #5

Also remember not to confuse this with figured bass notation, where C6 would denote a 1st inversion C triad.

You would call it C(b6) and Cm(b6). The brackets are necessary to avoid confusion with Cb6, which is enharmonic with B6.

Wow.

I just think of the sixth as the fourth of the third.
