Chord Fingering (Strings 4 3 2 1)

  • 2 3 1 4 - The most common fingering.
  • T 3 1 4 - I saw Pops Bayless of Shorty Long play it this way.

The F7 chord is a seventh chord (shown in "C" Tuning gCEA or GCEA). Sometimes inaccurately referred to as a dominant seventh chord.

Seventh chord A seventh chord is a chord or triad which has a note the seventh above the tonic in it. In its earliest usage, the seventh was introduced solely as an embellishing or non-chord tone. The seventh destabilized the triad, and allowed the composer to emphasize movement in a given direction. As time progressed and the collective ears of the western world became more accustomed to dissonance, the seventh was allowed to become a part of the chord itself, and in some modern music, and jazz in particular, nearly every chord is a seventh chord. The next natural step in composing tertian chords is to add the note a third above the fifth of the chord, or the seventh of the chord.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
