To understand chords such as Maj9, Maj11 and Maj13.
You need to writte the scale twice, or what is called two "Octaves"
C.....D.....E.....F.....G.....A.....B.....C.....D.....E.....F.....G.....A.....B.....C
1.....2.....3.....4.....5......6.....7.....8.....9.....10...11....12...13.
You know by now how to make a major triad[1,3,5,],
and how to make a Maj7[1,3,5,7].
If you add notes beyond the seventh, is called "Extended Major Chords".
So, a Maj9 contains [1,3,5,7,9].

Maj11=[1,3,5,7,9,11]
Maj13=[1,3,5,7,9,11,13]
As you can see, you are taking every other note of the scale or what is called using "Thirds", count from "C" to "E", three notes. Right?
Now count from "E" to "G". You get the idea.
Doesn`t sound like German anymore. Does it?
Someday I`ll play like in my dreams.
