Helmstock Level 1 Level 1

I can programme it to play C/None/Maj7


or even C/Maj/7


...in the 3 "rolling" places (and ignoring the Bass bit)


but believe me, neither of them are a Cmaj7


on real guitars, for example, a Cmaj7 is a C shape with your finger off the B string


why? how? where? when? what?


Hope you can help

    I'm a keyboard player. Maybe, this will help. C7 & CMaj7 have one unique difference. The Maj7th is one fret higher on the guitar. That's it. So, to go back to the keyboard it's one half step higher. The four notes within the chord would be

    C  E  G  B. Many ways to play but that's the root. When you see C7 just remember it's one fret down B- for guitar C  E  G  B-  Hope this helps.

    It sounds like the original poster knows the difference between a CMaj7 and a C7, but the problem is that changing the 7-note parameter wheel does nothing to the tonality of the chord, nor does the bass note selector actually change anything.
