It also assumes you have worked through Extended Harmony Chords Series 1, in which we learned more advanced chords like diminished 7th, minor 7th flat 5th, dominant 7th flat 5th and minor major 7th chord forms and shapes.
In Series 2, we will extend the concept of triadic harmony to include the 7th and the 9th of: 6/9ths, minor 9th, dominant 9th, dominant 7th flat 9th, dominant 7th flat sharp 9th (also called dominant 7th flat augmented 9th). We will learn how to play these as chord shapes rooted on the E, A and D strings. Then we will play them in a jazzy chord progression with a backing track. While these chords can be found in other genres of music, it is most frequently jazz they are associated with.
All these chords are referred to in Music Theory as Extended Chords or Extended Harmony Chords. This is because the triadic formation process has been extended beyond the normal three notes that form basic major and minor chords. Basic major and minor chords only necessarily contain the 1st, 3rd and 5th scale degrees. In the previous tutorial we learned how to extend the chord tones to include a variety of 7th chords by leapfrogging from the fifth note of the scale, over the sixth, to include the seventh note of the scales in the chord. Now we go further and include the 9th scale degree as a chord tone!
It is of course important to know how to play these chords. It is also important to understand how and why they are different. In each lesson I'll show you how to play a certain type of 9th chord. I'll show you the shape, the fingering, the notes and the scale degrees. This way you'll get the theory and the practice of each chord together!
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
