And since I'm the composer, I meant it like dim's

No that's horribly wrong how dare you compose your music like that! I am offended that you would think such a thing is acceptable! Never defile my ears again with your music!

Even listening to the recording you've done, I still think it sounds resolved on the major chord... I guess that's the point of the picardy third? I dunno, first time I've come across that tbh.

Haha

A Picardy third gives a strong resolution since it's more consonant than it's minor equivalent. So yes, it resolves on the major chord, but that doesn't automatically make a piece 'major'. Al the E's in the progression should've given that away.
It also sounds more resolved cause the highest note in the last chord is a C#. If I make the last chord minor (with C# as highest note) it also sounds resolved:

But music is not dogmatic. I would've written it in C# minor, to avoid all the accidentals.
If you'd notate this progression as written as in Db major it looks horrible and almost unreadible.

I think you'd still get lots of accidentals in C# minor. A diminished third, a dominant second...

I still find it weird that something can resolve on a major chord and not be in a major key, but ok. I'll think about it haha.

This is the 2nd chord in Stairway for context... Seeing as it has the descending bass is this some kind of slash chord?
