This, and all the other claims that CHORDS DO NOT HAVE SEVENTHS, is bogus.
TRIADS do not have sevenths. A TRIAD is a 135. A CHORD can have any notes
you, it or anyone else wants. Some CHORDS sound more musical than others,
and have been given labels to identify them within a totally arbitrary and
Also note that there is no way of identifying a chord out of context, ie.
you need to know the key signature, the chord progressions and key
modulations being used preceeding the chord in question to give it a label.
