Quote David Etheridge:
I've been looking at Dave Stewart's (the keyboard player, not the Eurhtyhmics axeman) mighty tome 'The Musician's Guide to Reading and Writing Music' and he has a more simplified version which seems to be easier to grasp.
Here's the gist:
C : major chord. (C-E-G-C)
Cm: minor chord. (C-Eb-G-C)
C7: seventh chord.(C-E-G-Bb-C)
Cm7: minor 7th chord. (C-Eb-G-Bb-C)
C6: sixth chord. (C-E-(G)-A-C)
Cm6: minor sixth (C-Eb-(G)-A-C)
Caug: augmented. (C-E-G#-C)
Cm7/9. Minor ninth. (C-Eb-G-Bb-(C)-D)
Cmaj7: Major seventh.(C-E-G-B-C)
I've copied Dave's chart and added notation. Hope it helps and is right!
