Added 6th

An added 6th is where you add the 6th note into the chord. For example:

To form the C major chord you would need the 1st (C), 3rd (E) and 5th (G) note of the scale.
CEG

To then get a C Major Added 6th Chord you would add on the 6th note of the scale which would be A. The full C major Added 6th chord would be: C E G A
The added 6th would be the same for minor chords as only the 3rd changes.

C minor 6 = C Eb G A
