    I MEAN ALL CHORDS YOU CAN (INCLUDING MODES). ANY HELP WILL BE TOO MUCH IMPORTANT FOR ME.

    ANOTHER QUESTION:
    I KNOW THAT Bdim TRIAD (B, D, F) FITS ON C SCALE, BUT LOOKING IT IN A GUITAR CHORD FINDER I SEE THAT IS FORMED BY B, D, F, G# ON GUITAR.
    THAT CONFUSED ME, CAN YOU HELP ME.

    YOU AND ME ARE MY TEACHER... :)

    (AND SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH, I HOPE YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN)

    BALOO... :D

    I - Cmaj7 = C E G B
    ii - Dm7 = D F A C
    iii - Em7 = E G B D
    IV - Fmaj7 = F A C E
    V - G7 = G B D F
    vi - Am7 = A C E G
    vii - Bm7b5 = B D F A

    Corresponding Modes:
    C Ionian - C D E F G A B C
    D Dorian - D E F G A B C D
    E Phrygian - E F G A B C D E
    F Lydian - F G A B C D E F
    G Mixolydian - G A B C D E F G
    A Aeolian - A B C D E F G A
    B Locrian - B C D E F G A B

    It's important to learn this in all different keys and become familiar with harmonization. This is vital in learning about chord progressions, improvisation, reading chord charts, etc.

    As for your other question, are you sure that's not a Bº7 (B diminished 7th)? Bº7 = B D F Ab. Ab is an enharmonic of G#. Ab is your diminished 7th.

    Hope this helps,
    Stephanie

    Great post Steph, I just wanted to point out that the B-D-F-A is also known as a half-diminished chord. And, the B-D-F triad would be a diminished triad(min3-min3)

    OK. You mean the pure Bdim is a triade formed by B, F and D (thats what i tought). And thats the only true.
    Also i saw chords like 6, 11, 6.9, 6+9 and other degrees, but i think that is giving another note to the basic chord for example like 7th's chords.

    thank you Stephanie and thank you brothers...... :)
