Kool Chord Archives


A minor (maj7) is a rather tense chord - probably why it shows up in movie scenes when there’s a lot of suspense around! What we have here is the sound of an A minor chord with a major 7th. The major 7th is known as the leading tone; it has a tendency to resolve upward to the tonic. So its presence within a minor chord is definitely not a restful combination!

If you experience any audio problems, try stopping/quitting other players such as RealPlayer. Reload the page if necessary.             

The basic A minor chord is represented on strings 5, 3, and 2; and the major 7th on strings 4 and 1 (octaves apart).

Fingering: try string 4 - finger 4, s3 - f2, s2 - f3, s1 - f1.
