I'm really bad at this so I need to work on it.
I only can come up with Bbmaj13/A without the third. :S
At least it's a nice chord to use in the key of A Locrian b4 I think.

That it doesn't get this ugly lump of uneveness out of my ring finger's nail?

No really.... I'd prefer coining those as composite chords; a poly chord is literally a bass extension that redefines the harmonic function above it.

Ie. C/D building a D11 through the implied fundamental tertiary; not a triadic doubling.

Edit: I'm not sure my opinion counts here... but that's how I feel about it personally.

yeah but poly in and of itself means "more than one" ... and that's exactly what you have in a poly chord "more than one chord" making up the whole.

hell, any chord is a "composite" by nature... a composite of intervals/tones/balh blah...

so calling what we know as a poly chord a "composite" chord (or calling any chord a composite chord) would be imo a bit redundant don't ya think? lol

Bb7 Db7 Fb7 G7

or if you're looking for ridiculously technical names..

Bb7 - Db7/Bb - Fb7/Bb - G7/Bb


Cas-

edit: and of course you can substitue the name E7 for any of the Fb names and Abb for either of those G7's. I just chose to stick with the Fb out of adherence to the initials triads chord tones and chose to use G instead of Abb out of practicality.

^ Yep. I would have accepted E7 and Abb7 as well, depending on your view of the chord's notes as far as diatonic goes. IMO E7 is more practical, if you view each name separately. Whatever

Cas is up

Oh, the diminished scale does wonders, deffy.

Question: I'm not too enlightened in the ways of the polychord... would a polychord be something like Gmaj6 = Em7?

nah, those would just be root position vs. 1st inversion .... (in the case of that initial chord being an Em7) or root position vs. 3rd inversion (in the case of Gmaj6 being the initial chord)

really that whole thing is just the concept of chords having more than one name/function. basic shit you already know


polychords are chords which when broken down or spelled out contain 2 distinct triads.

like in the case of that chord earlier, I had an Fmajor 1st inversion triad on the bottom and an Eb 2nd inversion on top.

hence

Eb
F


"Ebmaj over Fmaj"


and in the case of poly chords it's not really neccessary to write the inversion like

Eb/Bb
F/A

some time's you see it, but alot of times you won't. especially when dealing with the guitar cause there's usually only one way to voice alot of the polychords.


Cas-

p.s. I'll post my chord in a bit.

Meh, I thought it's harmonic function would be better that way, but if you really want me to...
