So, if we look at a Gmaj triad, we see it contains the notes G-B-D. On a stringed instrument that you would pluck, rather than use a bow, (E.G. Guitar, and in this specific case, a banjo.) what would adding in more of those same notes do? Because a banjo is tuned to g-D-G-B-D we have three different notes, (albeit in different octaves) because all the notes stay the same, is it still a triad? I could turn it into a Seventh Chord by adding in a Minor Seventh from the root G note, (If you look at the tuning, it would be the upper case G and not the lower case g.) while making that Gmaj triad Seventh chord is actually impossible unless you have hands the size of Andre the Giant, it is simply an example to ask the question. So, as a recap, is adding more of the same notes to a Gmaj triad changing the type of chord it is? Thanks in advance.
