That's a harmonic interval of a diminished 5th, roots G and Db.

Sorry, but it's dumb not to call that Cm in inversion. It defies the reason for chord symbol naming.

Whatever you're looking for isn't feasible in any sort of way, the harmonic function of C minor overcomes any sort of G-rooted chord, being 1 3 5, the first 3 intervals of the harmonic order of strengths.

That being said, Gsus4+?

No, actually it's my go, I think WJ agrees that Cm was the best name.
Using this chord:
Code:
e|--8--| B|--7--| G|--8--| D|--7--| A|-----| E|-----|

Create a 5-chord progression using the principle of secondary dominants; however there's a little twist. For each chord in the progression, you're only allowed to deviate from the original given chord by a half step with one note.
In other words, you can only alter one note of the original chord. And you can only alter it by a semitone.
The last chord (resolved chord) may be any chord you wish; just make sure it follows the thinking of secondary dominants!
Also, the second chord in your progression must be Dbdom7, and the third must be Gbdom7. This doesn't follow the rules, I know, but makes the progression possible.

Have fun!

-SD

Hint: The idea behind secondary dominants is reliant upon the resolution given by a V7-I cadence.
DeffyEdit: So in other words, your progression will go: Chord1 - Dbdom7 - Gbdom7 - Chord2 - Resolved Chord.

I want chord names and tabbed voicings!
Code:
#1 Db7 Gb7 #2 #3 e|--?---4-------?---?--| B|--?---6---5---?---?--| G|--?---4---6---?---?--| D|--?---6---4---?---?--| A|------4---4-------?--| E|------------------?--| Note: #3 = resolved chord; it can be anything!

I think that I've got this... assuming it's as simple as I think it is and I understand your rules. (I'll edit it in, give me some time to work it out, so no hints, please!)

EDIT: Yes, please explain the Adim7... is is the original chord? If so, the transition between the 1st and 2nd chord breaks the rule... as does the transition between Db7 and Gb7 as you mentioned.

If I disregard the first chord that you gave... I got the first chord with ease. But before i continue, please explain.

EDIT: Must we alter a note?
