I'm currently in the section of your book on chord shapes. I was slightly confused about how to understand the different chord shapes in relation to the way we build chords from the major scale. For example, the 3 chord would be notes 3, 5, 7, 2. Now that we're learning to see this as a minor chord shape, should I be able to think of the 3 chord as 3, 5, 7, 2 and 1, b3, 5, b7 at the same time?
