what does these chords mean?
These are not entirely standard abbreviations, but close enough.
Cma7 = C major 7th
Fma7/C = F major7rh with C in the bass (e.g. 2nd inversion)
F6/C = F major added 6th, with C in the bass
C#o7 - C# diminshed 7th
Dmi7 = D minor 7th
F#mi7(b5) = F# minor 7th with a flatted 5th
C6/9 = ?? I would guess C major added 6th with a D in the bass
A+7 = A augmented 7th
etc etc - from these clues you should be able to work out the rest! If you are asking how to spell these chords (which notes they contain) then it's probably more useful to work them out 9or consult a good boo on harmony) than to be told, since you do need to understand chord structure. Also, on piano, I would guess that you would want to voice the chords (choose which notes of the chord to play, and in which position) depending on how you wanted to move from one chord to another, and the overall effect that you wanted.
Also, I'm lazy!
Cma7 = C major 7th (CEGA)
Fma7/C = F major7rh with C in the bass (e.g. 2nd inversion) (CFACE)
F6/C = F major added 6th, with C in the bass (CFACD)
C#o7 - C# diminshed 7th (C# E G Bb)
Dmi7 = D minor 7th (D F A C)
F#mi7(b5) = F# minor 7th with a flatted 5th (F# A Cnatural E#)
C6/9 = ?? I would guess C major added 6th with a D in the bass (DCEGA)
Cma7/B (B CEGA)
Bb7 (Bb D F A)
A+7 = A augmented 7th (which i think may be a augmented minor: ACE#Gb)
so how to you know whether's a minor or major chord (based on the tonality: Cmajor, so F G are major chords)??
just wanna check...not really good though..i know
