No it is not. The symbol C7 is referring to a C Dominant 7 chord. They are closely related though. Both chords contain the C Major triad containing the notes C-E-G. The Cmaj7 chord has what is called a Major 7 added to the triad. In the case of the C Major scale the natural 7th is B. So the CMaj7 chord is spelled C-E-G-B. The difference between Maj7 chords and Dominant 7 chords is that in Dom 7 chords the 7th that is added to the major triad is one half step lower than the major 7th. This is called the minor 7th. In the case of the C7 chord the Major 7th (B) is flatted (lowered) a half step to become the minor 7th (Bb). Thus the B becomes Bb for the C7 chord. So the CMaj7 chord is spelled C-E-G-Bb.

What are the notes in the C7 chord?

The first, third, fifth, and seventh note derived from the C major scale, so: C-E-G-B for a major seventh chord (Cmaj7) and the seventh note flattened to Bb or B flat in the C7 chord commonly used in pop/blues as a final chord but in most classical music to be resolved in F.


What is a G7 chord?

It is a G chord with an added 7th: G, B, D and the 7th F#. It is the same in other chords like C7 which would be: C, E, G and the 7th B. Actually the chord symbol G7 indicates a minor 7 by default. G7 would be G, B, D and F natural. If F sharp is used, that would actually be Gmaj7, and the same applies to C7. C7 is C, E, G, and B flat. If B natural is used, that is a Cmaj7.


What is the difference between c7 and cmaj7?

C maj7 means its a normal C major chord but with an added seven.Intervals are 1-3-5-7 (C-E-G-B) C7 means its a dominant chord e.g. a flattened seven.The Intervals are 1-3-5-b7 (C-E-G-Bb) Thus the difference is the flat seven,in this case the B flat. .

What are some chords for bass guitar?

Ten chords sound great on the bass:C major chord- 8th fret on the E string and 9th fret on the G string.(add the 9th fret on the D string to make it a Cmaj7 chord) or(add the 8th fret on the D string to make it a C7chord)C minor chord- 8th fret on the E string and 8th fret on the G string.(add the 8th fret on the D string to make it a Cm7chord)Also playing in fifths sound good as well:E5 chord- 7th fret on the A string and 9th fret on the D string.Remember, you can move these chords anywhere on the instrument.The trick to playing chords on the bass is to keep the notes further apart. Lower notes played closer together become muddy sounding.

What is a chord progression?

A chord progression is sequence of chords that describe or give an outline of the changes in harmony during a piece of music. In tonal music, which is based on a musical key, the chord progression moves the harmony away from the tonal center to create tension and moves it toward the tonal center to create resolution.In tonal music, chords can be built on each degree of the scale. For example, in the key of C major, the triads (three-note chords) on each degree of the scale are: C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am, Bdim. In the key of D major, the scale-tone chords are: D, Em, F#m, G, A, Bm, C#dim. The pattern of chord types (major, minor, minor, major, ...) is the same in every major key. The tonal center is the harmony built on the tonic note of the key.For more elaborate harmony, four-note chords can be constructed on each degree of the scale in the same way. For example, in the key of C major, the seventh chords are: Cmaj7, Dm7, Em7, Fmaj7, G7, Am7, Bø (that's "half-diminished"). The same idea can be extended to five-note and even six-note chords.The function of a chord depends on its position relative to the tonic of the key. Chord progressions follow a variety of patterns in which the harmony moves from one chord function to another. Since the pattern of chord types is the same in every major key, the patterns that chord progressions follow are similar in every key.As a result, musicians find it convenient to remember chord progressions in terms of the chord positions relative to the tonic of the key, rather than the actual chord names. Customarily, Roman numerals are used to represent the relative chord positions. For example, in the key of C major,I = Cmaj7ii = Dm7iii = Em7IV = Fmaj7V = G7vi = Am7vii = BøSo, a very common chord progression can be written as "vi-ii-V-I". That chord progression can be played in any key. In the key of C major, it would be "Am7 Dm7 G7 Cmaj7". In the key of D major, it would be "Bm7 Em7 A7 Dmaj7". The chord progression produces the same recognizable movement of the harmony, regardless of the key. If you memorize the chord progression, rather than the chord names, you can play the same tune in any key you wish.As you learn to play different songs, you will notice that there are some chord progression patterns that occur frequently. By learning which chord changes lead away from the tonal center (create tension) and which ones lead toward the tonal center (create resolution), you will discover how to create your own chord progressions, in any key.Of course, there's a lot more to it than that. There are various altered chord qualities that can be applied to the different chord types to make the harmony more interesting. There are the chords that are not built on the scale tones, which allow you to take the harmony even farther away from the tonal center. You can also borrow fragments of chord progressions from other keys, to modulate away from the key in which you started, entirely. That gets interesting, because you might not be able to come back by the same route that you left!

What is a chord tone?

One of the notes in a chord. For a three-note chord (major, minor, diminished, augmented), the root is the first chord tone, the major or minor third is the "third" chord tone, and the perfect, diminished, or augmented fifth is the "fifth" chord tone. for chords of higher degree than five, the additional notes are all chord tones as well. Here is a list of the chord tones of common chords in C: C - C E G Cmin - C Eb G Cdim - C Eb Gb C+ - C E G# Csus4 - C F G C7 - C E G Bb CMaj7 - C E G B Cmin7 - C Eb G Bb C9 - C E G Bb D C11 - C E G Bb D F CMaj13 - C E G B D F A (All of the notes of the C major scale!)

How are chords numbered?

Chords are numbered according to their position in the key. Customarily, Roman numerals are used to represent the relative chord positions. For example, in the key of C major, the four-note scale-tone chords are:I = Cmaj7ii = Dm7iii = Em7IV = Fmaj7V = G7vi = Am7vii = Bø (that's "B half-diminished")Since the pattern of chord types is the same in every major key, if you know a chord progression in terms of its relative positions, you can play the progression in any key you wish.
