When making the C7, by flattening the 7th to Bb, where is the 5th, G in the cord?

Hi James,

In the minor 7b5 chords the 5th is also flattened, so in C min7b5 you have a Gb instead of a G note.

In dominant 7th chords the 5th is optional.

That’s what I was wondering, in the Dominate C7…the G turns into a flattened Bb 7th…so it’s optional, Thanks
