No POSTING OUT OF TURN, this will result in a warning/ban depending on your warnings situation. We will really be cracking down on this, so hopefully everybody will take the time to read the rules.

Also, if the person who named the chord correctly does not post a question within 24 hours then it's up for grabs to anyone.

Any question pertaining to music theory or naming chords is welcome.

Finally, welcome and have fun. Letís get this started with an easy one.

Lets go. :D

anyone with PowerTab can do this in 10 seconds

Johnljones7443 11-21-2007 01:21 AM

I had F#7#11 or C7#11 in mind, but sure - you're up hippie.

The trick is to not do it with powertab. The key is to either do it in your head or write the notes out and do it like that. And besides, if you use powertab for lots of the tough ones, you will get some far out crazy answers that arent even close.

Been 24 hrs..

Two names.

were posts deleted from here???


Unlikely, but could be taken from A melodic minor.

ed- oops, i will try for another name now

Johnljones7443 11-22-2007 10:00 AM

It is indeed taken from A melodic minor. One name is from the lowest voice, the other is of the same quality.

All relevant notes are present.. so no need to worry about anything rootless or otherwise.

branny1982 11-22-2007 10:06 AM

ok, D7#11

and one of the same 'quality'?
another dominant or another #11? or both?

another dominant is G#7 b5b9

Johnljones7443 11-22-2007 10:10 AM

D7#11 and G#7b5b9 or G#alt is spot on. (D Lydian dominant and G# altered from A melodic minor)

And yeah, by quality I meant another dominant chord.

chords, or scale and cadence.

Johnljones7443 11-22-2007 10:36 AM

D#į7 - B7b9. Scale is E harmonic minor. I believe that would be called a half cadence. (vii - V).

branny1982 11-22-2007 10:40 AM

i was intending it to be a full cadence and the 2nd chord is correct.

Johnljones7443 11-22-2007 11:50 AM

F#į7 - B7b9? This would still be a half cadence.

branny1982 11-22-2007 12:02 PM

would it?

in B phrygian dominant?

if so, then yes, sorry about that :cool:

Johnljones7443 11-22-2007 12:08 PM

Right. I get you - I just don't see B7b9 as a place of rest, so figured you were in E harmonic minor and that was part of some progression, not a resolution to B7b9. S'all good.

Name & scale.

branny1982 11-22-2007 12:42 PM

Johnljones7443 11-22-2007 03:20 PM

Yep. Eb harmonic major. Go.

branny1982 11-22-2007 06:55 PM

harmonic major?? a scale with only a b6?? never heard of it :cool:

somebody else can have a turn.
