So I'm trying to teach myself music theory, but these things have been bugging me: 1. My music theory book lists major, minor, diminished, augmented, and suspended triads. Why is there no mention of a triad with a natural 3rd and a flatted 5th? My book of chords also doesn't list such a thing, nor do any of the online chord generators. I tried playing a few of these on my mandolin (e.g. C E Gb), and I thought they sounded pretty good. Kind of eerie and suspenseful. 2. Also, why is there no raised 3rd / raised 5th triad? These also don't seem to sound too bad. 3. Why are there about 800 million varieties of 7th chords, but only 2 kinds of 6ths.
