tell me if this is correct.

Major and Minor chords are based one 1-3-5 right?
and 7ths are just an added 7th?
and Sus means like if its sus4 then it would be 1-4-5 right?


SO CONFUSING!

Yeah, you're correct. A minor triad is 1-b3-5, while a major just has a major 3rd. A sus4 chord would be 1-4-5, and a sus2 chord would be 1-2-5. A 7th chord adds a flat 7th (b7) unless specified otherwise.

In short:

Major = 1-3-5
Minor = 1-b3-5
Sus4 = 1-4-5
Sus2 = 1-2-5

An augmented triad is 1-#3-5. An augmented interval is an interval one semi-tone higher (Augmented), and a diminished interval is an interval that is reduced by one semi-tone. A diminished triad is 1-b3-b5 (Root, Minor 3rd, Flatted 5th).

ok so in short (again)

Major: 1-3-5
Minor: 1-b3-5
Sus4: 1-4-5
Sus2: 1-2-5
Aug: 1-#3-5
Dim: 1-b3-b5
7th: 1-3-5-b7?
ok ty

An augmented triad is built by stacking major thirds, which results in 1-3-#5. An augmented interval is created by raising a major or perfect interval.

Regarding the TS question about 7ths, some of the most common would be...

Dominant 7th: 1-3-5-b7
Major 7th: 1-3-5-7
Minor Seventh: 1-b3-5-b7
m7b5: 1-b3-b5-b7
Diminished 7th: 1-b3-b5-bb7
7sus: 1-4-5-b7
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.
