    Let me start the tutorial by showing a table I II III IV V VI VII C D E F G A B D E F# G A B C# E F# G# A B C# D F G A A# C D E G A B C D E F# A B C# D E F# G# B C# D# E F# G# A# what does this table mean? The table shows the notes in the keys of C, D, E, F, G, A, and B. How can this table help in deriving chords? Let me start by demonstrating the notes in a major chord. For example, the chord C major is comprised of notes C, E, and G. The chord G major consists of G, B, and D notes. Notice a pattern? The major chord is composed of 3 notes. the "I, III and V" notes. The I notes are known as the key notes, where all the other notes revolve around. How can you use these information to derive new chords? Here are examples: Major 7 chord consists of the I note, the III note, the V note, and the VII note. An easier way to remember? It consists of the I note, the III, the V note, and a note half-step down from the I note. i.e. Cmaj7 consists of C, E, G, B. Minor chord consists of the I note, the V note, and a note half-step down from the III note. i.e. Cm consists of C, Eb, G Minor 7 chord consists of the I note, the V note, a note half-step down from the III note, and a note whole step down from the I note. i.e. Cm7 consists of C, G, Eb, Bb Dominant 7 chord consist of the I note, the III note, and a note whole step down from the I note. i.e. C7 consists of C, E, Bb Dominant 6 chord consists of the I note, the III note, and a note whole step up from the V note. i.e. C6 consists of C, E, A Suspended (2) chord consists of the I note, the III note, the V note, a note whole step down from the III note, and a note half step down from the I note. i.e. Csus2 consists of C, E, G, D, B Suspended (4) chord consists of the I note, the V note, and a note half-step up from the III note. i.e. Csus4 consists of C, G, F These are but few of a lot of chords out there. But most of the chords revolve around the three notes (I, III, and V notes) and these can be used to derive new chords,

    Hey guys be nice..it isn't too much to read, considering how much it probs took to write it, if you don't wanna read it, don't, but don't showcase how lazy you are by posts about how long it is.
