The following chord forms are the most common movable 4 note voicings for Major chords on the guitar. e. only 3 separate letter names). None of these grips use any open strings so they can be transposed easily up and down the fretboard. They all have the chord’s root as the lowest pitch. The 3rds and 5ths of these voicings are often in a higher octave than they were when we were originally constructing the triad types. This is nothing to be alarmed about. An E situated a 10th above a C Root will still be functioning as the major 3rd of some type of a C chord.
This fourth note will be a major, minor or augmented 3rd above the triad’s 5th (or ∫5 or #5). This new note will be seven letter names, and therefore some sort of a seventh interval, above the chord’s root, hence the term “Seventh” chord. C Major 7th = C (Root) E (3rd) G (5th) B (7th) 50 © 1998 J. M. Goldstein Some times an inversion of a 7th chord will be named as if the lowest chord tone is actually the root. Here’s an example: A Minor Seventh (Am7) consists of the tones A, C, E, G. It’s first inversion is: C, E, G, A.
