Yea there is major7,minor7ths and other chords but its weird how brian wilson uses them its not like he is tension/resolving like most composers use these colourchords

1.) the seventh of a chord is optional
I have to disagree because if u add in the 7th or 9th or 11th to the chord progression what the composer wrote/song it would be a totally different song so its not optional it changes alot on how the chord progression voice leads and just how it connects plus soloing on top would change alot to vocals singing ontop of 7th,9th,11th chords even tho its optional
2.) rock music, they use a non-diatonic flatted VI chord.
you mean the non-diatonic flatted VI chord add 7
3.) Paul McCartney chords as well as augmented and diminished chords
to me him just used them as Passing chords or connecting chords like a walking chord down or up . Diminish chords to go passing down and use augmented to pass up to another chord right?
Yea there is major7,minor7ths and other chords but its weird how brian wilson uses them its not like he is tension/resolving like most composers use these colourchords they use them in a different way but can't explain it really take a look for yourself on the chord sheets of pet sounds songs

I dunno what an inversion is. Innervisions is a pretty good Stevie Wonder album. It's late. I'm tired and wish I knew all these answers.
I see it as the bass changing the sound of the chords on top of it, so a walking bass in C might go C, B, A making the chord sound different, Cmaj7, (C6? Am7?) i get this bit, but then Brian must do it jazzier somehow, because it doesn't sound like simply walking from one chord to another in scale. I love stuff with descending riffs. About a hundred Kinks songs must use that trick and it sounds great alla time!
