ONLINE PIANO CHORD DICTIONARY

In the diagram below you will see the printed symbol for the chord, such as C, which is what you will encounter in popular sheet music. Underneath are alternate printed names (and symbols, such as triangles, etc.) such as C maj7, that pop musicians have devised, and which may appear in sheet music depending on the age of the printed sheet music you are using.

Diagram of C7-5 Piano Chord

The C seventh chord with a flatted fifth is comprised of two white keys on the bottom and two black keys on the top. This same chord may use a variety of chord symbols in sheet music, such as C7-5, or C7b5. It is not a chord you will run into very often in popular music, but it does occasionally occur.

The C seven flat five chord (C7 -5) has an almost dangerous quality, but also can be lightly mysterious. In the context of 30s and 40s music it has a lush, sweeping quality.

Here's a fun chord game. Make up your own song using the Xs in a different order. Use mostly the Xs, but sometimes include other white and black keys. Most songs are based on the notes of chords, with other notes occasionally appearing. Have fun: there is no wrong answer.

Click on the chord name. Chords are organized according to the symbols that you will see in popular sheet music. This is a beginner's list that covers chords through the 7th chord, such as C7.
