so I wonder why there is no maj7#5 in a book with all the other chords?

My guess: since it's a maj7 with a #5, they took it as a maj7 variant and didn't feel the need to list it.

to qstionauthority:

that's theoretically right,
but you'd probably want a voicing more like:

e x
b 3
g 3
d 3
a x
e 2
#8
F# A# Cx E#
1 M3 #5 M7

enjoy
dont take any guff from these bastards man

I have a question, why isn't it label F#augmaj7, I know that sounds pretty ridiculous, but someone told me you name the triad first then the extensions.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.


Quote by MiKe Hendryckz
theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.

I'd say because its just an alteration of a seventh chord, even though the alteration is in the base triad and not in an extension like you more commonly see. Like as in M7#11 or 7#9, you tack the description of the alteration on the end. I would usually just call your chord an F#+7 since it's the only augmented 7th chord you can create with 3rd stacking.

Generally the convention is simply to name the highest un-altered note before naming any alterations.

For example
1, 3, 5, 7, b9, 11
Would become
_maj11b9

Never heard of the triad first thing. For example D7 doesn't name the triad first, though I suppose if it were written as DMajmin7 then it would have the triad first.
