Re: [Harp-L] Melody Maker tuning

Yes. I see your point Michael.

BTW, to clarify, my intention was not to criticize or correct - just
to share observations of the music and discuss the nitty gritty of
what chords are available...

I was wondering if jazz circles use "#" or "+" as a sharp, but maybe
other circles use +9 as "add 9", meaning regular 9?

I guess I see "#" or "+" and would think "sharp" either way.  What
does a + mean for you then?  Just augmented as in an augmented chord?

Anyway, great recording.

Chester & all,
common chord notation would be Cmaj9
the major 7 note in the chord is implied

+9 is not the best way to say raised 9th
IMO #9 is better
