E|-5---------


MINOR

Major 7: 1-3-5-7
Minor 7: 1-b3-5-b7
Dominant 7: 1-3-5-b7

If you don't know what these formulas mean, you need to spend some time learning the theory behind the major scale.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Major 7
---------------

----4--7------
-5-------------

Minor 7
-------------
-----------5
----3--7----
-5-----------

Dominant 7

----4--7-----
-5-----------

All in A of course.
I bet you five bucks that I play guitar.

He shouldn't be memorizing these patterns. All of these arpeggios can be played all over the fretboard. He should be learning the intervals and notes in each of the chords.

I know what those mean, but to be honest I'm lazy and I couldnt remember which had a 7 and which had a flatted 7, and i couldnt be arsed to get my music theory notebook to check it to be honest.

you don't need to remember anything. a major 7th comes from the 7th note of a major scale, and a minor 7th comes from the 7th note of a minor scale, relevant to the root of the chord. its pretty logical

The interval of a major seventh may be found in the major scale, but there are plenty of chords with a major 7th that aren't diatonic at all.

A dominant seventh is basically a flatted seventh. You always assume that the seventh is flat unless something says otherwise. I unfortunately had to stop taking lessons before I could learn why all of this was so, but I assume that it's just for making chord naming easier.

Archeo, not everyone is going to be as serious as we are, maybe this person just wants to jam with friends everyonce in a while.
