Chord Help!: BmA, BmAb.

Posted by Steve on Fri, 03/15/02 - 16:02:25.

Could someone please explain the tab for these chords? I haven't been playing that long, and don't know how to read sheet music. I've checked out 'chord generator' programs, but haven't been able to find these. Any help is really appreciated!!
Thanks,
Steve

I think they are referencing a B 7th, and dimished 7th (respectively), but I haven't seen any chord referenced that way... what is it from ? could be someones own 'definition'.

Re: Chord Help!: BmA, BmAb.

You're close, I believe they are trying to spell -out a Bminor 7th, and Bminor 6th, respectively. BmA = Bminor 7th = B, D# ,F#, A. BmAb = BmG# = Bminor 6th = B, D#, F#, G#.
Some systems of writing chords would say one of the 4 diatonic triads (major, minor, diminished - dim, augmented - aug) and then list any additional chord tones as either sharp or flat whatever, or by listing the actual note names. It can get very confusing when you are trying to distinguish between a major/minor triad versus say a major 7th or a flat 7th.

:These chords are given in Elton John's "Your Song". I can't find them either. Good luck.
