What do the symbols behind the notes mean? I'm asked to create seventh chords, or chords with more than the three basic tones, and these symbols pop up. It's not homework I'm asking you to do for me - I'm practicing for a test that I have coming up and I don't know what they mean.

Any help is highly appreciated.

SRK is the only person in this thread that is correct. This is all that needs to be said.

That's what I thought at first, but they're asking me for a D(triangle)add9 and Ebm(triangle). I have the answers on a sheet as well but I don't want to look yet. I want to construct it myself first.

Also, if they ask for EØ, and they want me to build a diminished chord with a seventh tone, would that be a half diminished seventh chord or a fully diminished seventh?

*Edit* I didnt see all those new replies yet. Gimme a sec to read em.

*Edit again*

Okay, that's wonderful. All I needed to know. Thank you everyone.

The Triangle is read as "Delta". It usually means "add major7" in a sense, because you can have a "Cmin(delta)7" which is a root, minor third, fifth, and major seventh.

Just food for thought.
