This lesson is a listing of chord forms I worked out. There are Approximately 26 forms listed here, I have broken them all down into 4 Lessons.

Lesson 1 (this lesson) - Covers Normal 7th Chord.
Lesson 2 - 7th Chords in 1st Inversion (3rd in Bass Note)
Lesson 3 - 7th Chords in 2nd (5th in Bass note), and 3rd Inversion (7th in Bass note)
Lesson 4 - Horizontal only Chords

These chords are displayed in the form of a Major Harmonized Scale, if you are unfamiliar with the Harmonized Scale search the lesson database for "harmonized scale" there are plenty of primer lessons covering the subject. A lot of these chords require you to use fingers to pluck the strings, or in my case I use a pick along with my remaining fingers to accomplish this.

Above each Harmonized Scale is its Chord formula.

R = Root
3 = 3rd Interval
5 = 5th Interval
7 = 7th Interval
oct = Octave above Root

If there is a + sign before an interval it means that it's above the roots octave.
Example
R . 3 . 5. +7
It there is an - sign before an interval it means that it's below the root.
Example
-5 . R . 3 . 7

I'm using the above in place of music score, which is what I would rather use.
