    Well, how about the major sixth, minor sixth and seventh sharp fifth chords?

    Then move on to the seventh, flat fifth, the minor major seventh, the minor seven, flat five (half diminished) and the seventh sus 4th.

    Here are the formulas:

    Major sixth: Root, 3rd, 5th, 6th
    Minor sixth: Root, flat 3rd, 5th, 6th
    Seventh sharp fifth: Root, 3rd, sharp 5th, flat 7th

    Seventh flat fifth: Root, 3rd, flat5th, flat 7th
    Minor majot seventh: Root, flat3rd,fifth, major 7th
    Minor seven flat fifth: Root, flat 3rd, flat 5th, flat 7th
    Seventh suspended fourth: Root, 4th, 5th, flat 7th


    There are many other chords, such as ninth chords, eleventh chords and thirteenth chords, however the above chords should expand your chord vocabulary nicely for a beginner.

    THAT IS ON 7TH'S FAMILY.
    I am focused on modes.
    On G scale I practice all 7th´s arpeggios and I find D dominant 7

    Pretty woman sounds like D dominant 7.

    Too slowly but I learning something every day. :)

    Baloo, here's something you may or may not know. All those chords you are working on, can be inverted. In other words, a C major chord is typically played as root, third, fifth.

    But you can change the order of those intervals. in a "first inversion", the third is on the bottom--third, fifth, root. In the "second inversion", the fifth is on the bottom. So you play fifth, root, third.

    If you have extended chords such as seventh chords, you can put the seventh on the bottom.

    Changing the order of the notes in a chord changes the sound and is fun to experiment with.

    Yeah, I'm working on it now, but i'm doing it with 7th, i mean all 7th chords on G major scale.

    I also was doing inversions on 6th chords, now I discovered that E minor7 and G major6 are formed by the same notes (I mean E, G, B, D). It's the same thing with other chords of the same scale ( F# disminished7 and A minor6, G major7 and B minor6, etc....), but I'm feeling a little confuced with this surprise.
