Like its minor 11th brother, it consists of two pairs of perfect 5ths separated by a narrow interval, in this case a tone.

So does the 5 chord exist? I'm delighted to report that it does, and has recently been sighted in large numbers off the shores of Newfoundland. We can arrive at it by performing this musical equation: The result is a C minor 7 5 chord, which might be accompanied melodically by the perfect 4th, diminished 5th and minor 6th intervals. ) Flattened 6th ( 6) Chords An agreeable way to squeeze a minor 6th interval into a chord is to add it to a major triad.

The third, which determines whether a chord is major or minor. The perfect fifth, which combines with the root to give a chord sonic strength. ) are added. Any of the three may be omitted from a chord voicing as the composer desires, but when present, they have a powerful effect on a chord's sound. After a while, you will begin to recognise their effect, and that's when you will be able to name chords just by hearing them. This is not a trick or a special skill, just a question of familiarity. Returning to our A sus 2 chord, you will notice that it consists of the two fundamental notes A and E (root in octave position and 5th respectively) to which a top note of B (the 2nd or 9th) is added.
