Yes they are great. Thanks for sharing those charts.

If the song is calling for an Am7, what key would that song most likely be in?

Or for an Fm7?

You’re welcome!

If the song is calling for an Am7, then it is likely in the key of C major or G major.

From a theory or Nashville number system standpoint (if it is helpful!): In the key of C, the Am7 chord will act as the 6m chord (the six minor chord for Nashville number system), which is the relative minor of the key. In the key of G, an Am7 is the 2m chord.

An Am7 can also be in the key of F major, in which it is the 3m chord.

For an Fm7: In the key of Ab (major) it is the 6m chord. For the key of Eb, it is the 2m chord. In the key of Db, it is the 3m chord.

The 6m, 2m, or 3m chords mentioned above can also be utilized as m7 chords (6m7, 2m7, and 3m7 for instance).

Hope this is helpful! To keep things simple and hopefully not confusing Smile

An Am7 is likely in the key of C, G, or F. An Fm7 is likely in the key of Ab, Eb, or Db.

Thanks again Casey. Having to find a minor seventh is easier to understand now. Much simpler than I was trying to make it out to be.

Thank You

After an exchange of cordial Emails with Casey Saulpaugh, he agreed that I could post the following approach when looking for a Minor 7th Chord.

"True Transparency" = This approach is based on the 'Buddy Emmons E9th Chord Vocabulary' {issued many moons ago} which approached each task from a 'positional playing perspective.'

So, if I was looking for a Minor 7th of a Major Chord -

From the OPEN Major Chord Position

a) Go BACK two frets with A+B pedals
Play strings 4 thru 7

From the CLOSED Major Chord Position

a) Go UP one fret with Only Eb lever engaged
Play strings 8 thru 4

b) Go BACK two frets with Only B pedal
Play strings 10 thru 6, Omit string 8

The results are the same as shown on Casey's 'fretboard approach.'

It's been said We all learn in different ways, so perhaps this 'positional approach' will help someone.

Thanks Casey for all You do!

Regards
Ron
