    In your book, you state that the first Tonic chord of F is Fmaj7 but in the examples the chord is F7. Did I miss something?

    ah .... good find. In diatonic harmony (in the key) then the chord built upon the tonic is a maj7. However the blues, which is what I assume that you are referring to is not diatonic. In fact, it doesn't even come from western harmony (where most of the rules come from). The blues have their roots in Africa.
