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
yay im understanding!!!

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.

^^You're right, but that wasn't the most helpful way of making a point, was it?

You might have seen it already, but if not and if you need any more help with making chords, try 0000409D's Guide to Chord Formation in the lessons section - I can't tell you how helpful I found it.

As for branny, was that really necessary? I'm just learning man, you don't need to be that harsh.
-.- maybe i should just stick to the stupid poster i got -.-
