C7#5 (Seventh Augmented 5th)

Animated C7#5 (Seventh Augmented 5th) tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This example is from the Theory Section on Types of Seventh Chords.

The Seventh Augmented Fifth Chord

This is where a minor 7th (Bb) is added to an augmented triad.

For C this would give us the notes: C E G# Bb

Intervals: 1st - 3rd - #5th - b7th (relative to major scale degrees)

This chord would be written as C7#5. Sometimes people call these chords 'seven sharp fives'.

From the lowest to highest string we are playing the following combination of notes first time around:

C G# Bb E

The second chord here is an easier way to play the C7#5 chord, but it doesn't start from the root note in the bass. Instead the notes follow this order, from lowest to highest string:

Bb E G# C
