“The B13 Chord”
This is what we call a dominant 13th chord (but it does have some notes omitted). Here it is below:
Bass = B
Right hand = A + C# + D# + G#
Because there is a “G#”, we call this chord a 13th. A few days ago, we discussed the “extended tones” concept. If you don’t understand why G# is the 13th tone of the B major scale (and also the 6th tone in the lower octave), check out the e-mail that I sent a few days ago, ok?
If you don’t know the B major scale, then you need to check out some of our free lessons on “major scales.” My 300-pg course also covers major scales and 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th chords. Visit:
