Flat Ones -- A look at Major Seventh Chords

Kirk Lorange

I've posted a new free lesson. I played it finger style, but the lesson is more about one particular flavor of chord -- the Major Seventh.

Not to be mistaken for those bluesy dominant 7ths, Major 7ths are those 'pretty' sounding chords that conjure up sunny days and good vibes. I've strung a few together into a nice progression in this lesson. I've called the lesson 'Flat Ones' ... you'll find out why.

As you have probably discovered by now, there's nothing easy about trying to decode the fretboard. To learn a complicated subject, we humans look for patterns. That's just how the brain works. Learning the guitar means learning music as well, at least the fundamentals of music. The problem is that music has no regular pattern, nor does the fretboard. Music is a jumble of uneven intervals, scales, chord flavors and all the rest; the fretboard has that annoying kink in its tuning, throwing out any regular, easy to follow pattern. Put both together and you have the reason most people give up trying to figure it all out and abandon their dream of becoming fluent on the instrument. No pattern.

PlaneTalk to the rescue! There is in fact a simple way -- using a landmark you already know -- to de-mystify the fretboard so that it all makes perfect, logical, musical sense at all times. Why spend any more time searching for it? I've done it for you.
