    I believe the seventh is flat because it’s a DOMINANT seventh chord, and not a major seventh chord. There are major and minor seventh chords, but there are also dominant seventh chords. There is actually a diminished triad in every dominant seventh chord, which is why they have that particular character to them.

    Nice but you’re not fingering the C#m7 or G#7 correctly. The C you play on the 3rd string of the C#m7 should be flatted to Bb (flat 7 makes a 7th chord, 7th=B). I have no idea why a 7th chord requires a flatted 7th and not a natural. Similar on the G#7, the G you play on the 4th string should be an F (the flat 7th). And what you said was a Bb chord is a really a B which is right (B root second fret A string). Clapton seems to mute the first string on the D. :) Got a couple ideas from you, Thnx!
