To play the Emaj7 chord, place the index finger on the 1st fret of the top g-string, ring finger on the 3rd fret of the C-string, and middle finger on the 2nd fret of the bottom A-string. Let the other string ring open.
The Emaj7 chord contains the notes E-G#-B-D#.
To build an Emaj7 chord, take the major seventh chord formula (1-3-5-7) and apply it to the E major scale (E, F#, G#, A, B, C#, D#).
Identify the first, third, fifth, and seventh scale degrees in the E major scale, which are E-G#-B-D#, giving you an Emaj7 chord.
