List of 7th Chords

This is a list of strict 7th chords which means starting on the root note on the lowest (deepest) string and then finding the next note on the next highest string etc. This produces some impossible stretches in many cases, so - try the alternatives!

G seventh Chord The numbers represent the frets to press on each string in order from lowest to highest so G7 as commonly played is 0 0 2 1 (see diag)
