BMaj7

Description

The major chord might sound boring, made up of the 1st, 3rd and 5th degrees of the major scale. However, any good soloist or chord player will add various extra notes to spice up the sound, playing a major 7th, major 9th, major 6th or major 6/9 chord instead.

Standard scale choice

Just the major scale: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 although the fourth degree is what Americans call an 'avoid note' -- one that you can't stay on for too long without resolving it up or down to a nicer-sounding note in the scale.
