With my musical experience with the major modes, that just means a major interval (a whole semitone apart). Whereas minor is: - (semitone apart).

It can also be used to write down a major 7th in a mode.

Does delta (Δ next to a chord name indicate a major 7th?

So would FΔ9 be 1-3-5-7-9?
yup

yes, Major 7ths are sometimes written with the Delta. ( it really depends on the book.... but it is used) I dont think I've ever seen a Major 9th chord written that way though. Maybe someone else has.

and yeah, 1-3-5-7-9 = maj 9th although its commonly voiced with 4 notes, omitting either the root, or the 5th.


common F maj9 chord voicings:

1st chord = 7,3,5,9: 2nd chord = 1,3,7,9

Yep. But when you see that symbol it's almost always safe to sub a _6 or _6/9 chord too.
