Thank you to my Patreon supporters! They literally are why these lessons exist. https://bit.ly/2zFwzOO My new 80’s single – https://youtu.be/bHwwJihitl0 The minMaj7 chord is a hilariously unique and distinct chord that is almost universally perceived as mysterious, creepy, or uncertain. I ask all my students how chords “feel” to them and none of them have EVER named this chord with a positive or bright emotion. It’s good for a gag, but is also very lovely when combined in melodic ways. This video demonstrates the basics of the minor major 7th chord, the music theory on how to build it, where you may have heard it before, and some advice on how you might use it yourself. A special thank you to: Linas Orentas Marek Pawlowski John Arnold Christopher Swanson Marc Bulandr
