Major 7 chords are very common chords, but this is our first Major 7 guitar inversion on Guitar Chord a Day. The major seventh is sometimes written as Δ7, so F major 7, F maj7 and FΔ7 all mean the same thing.

Major 7 can replace Major triads for chords I and IV in Major keys.

Major  chords use these degrees of the major scale: 1, 3, 5, 7

F Major 7 uses the notes: F, A, C, E

Our inversion uses the notes in this order: A, F, C, E
