im writing a song, in the key of C.
the chord progression is

Intro

G F# A D F# A G F#

Chorus
C# A C# B C# C# x3
C# B# A C# B A G# C# B A G# B

Verse: same as intro

what shall i continue it with?
i am writing in standard tuning.
Key of C,as said above.

thanks before hand

What?

That really doesn't look like C at all.

Ah, when you've done a line or two"
#5
That progression is most certainly not in the key of C.
It would help if you defined the chord qualities.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
#7
my chord wheel say that its in the key of C,the chords F,C,G,D,Am,Em,B, and Dm are in the key of C.

thats what it says...
EDIT: this is my first song (guitar) so be easy please...then what key is it in? it must be near a C

the key of c has no accidentals, yes ur chord whell says the minors and maj right, maybe but thats not c, its not any key, itd be a with a non diatonic note of b#

is this a troll? But seriously that's in almost no key. There's like no definitive cadence anywhere, and if all of those chords are major, I don't see why that would be pleasant to listen to. (at least for me anyway. It sounds rambling and unresolved.)

agree, something like that out of key, especially with the minor b flat which would be the g# i would guess it sounds very...dark...

now thinking again, im an idiot, b# is c... still. your not in the key of c...or at that anyother key.

No,im not trolling...

so they are saying

EDITZ: They arent chords like up above the forth fret,they are actually finger picked power chords...and when i strum both notes,it makes the said chords...

That is a very ambiguous chord progression, it doesn't seem to follow any key. Unless you want Neapolitan chords and sharpened subdominant chords with sharpened dominant chords, that is not in C.

hah, you just have to learn it, im taking music theory as a class so im still learing, use ur circle of fiths. and heres a good short lesson by me lol:

key of c=no accidentals (sharps or flats)
c#=all sharps
c flat=all flats
g=one sharp (f)
d=2 sharps (f, c)
a=3 sharps (f,c, g)
e=4 sharps (f,c,g,d,)
b=5 sharps (f,c,g,d,a)
f#=6 sharps (f,c,g,d,a,e)

flats
F=one flat (b)
bflat=2 flats (b, e)
eflat=3flats (b,e, a)
aflat=4 flats(b,e,a,d)
dflat=5 flats (b,e,a,d,g)
gflat=6 flats (b,e,a,d,g,d)

see a pattern?

Power chords? All those are is the root note, the fifth, and the octave. Say you play a power chord on the fifth fret, A string. That is a D power chord. It is neither major nor minor, because the third of a triad determines that.
#19
id have to hear how it sounds(the rhythm) but looking at that progression, it wont sound pretty. its key of a plus a non diatonic c. d only has 2 sharps, it doesnt have g sharp.

It doesn't matter which key it's in. As long as it sounds good. If you think that all songs stay in the same key, guess again. This is why we have diatonic and non-diatonic chords. I do have to admit one thing, that is an odd collection of chords.

can't you record it, so I can listen for the chords. I think you notated wrong.

b|----------------------------|
g|-----7----7----7---7---7-|
d|--9----9----9----8---9---|


the 8 instead of 9 is to freshen it up a little

Yes please. Record it, cause those are not chords, or you notated them wrong.

ye true, u may have notated it wrong. i mean i make songs that go outta key, but not that much, remeber u can create whatever music u want. also use key changes if u find u dont like the key or chord progressions in on part of a song, then just change it, what i often do is make a song, w/o using keys, then put it into a key, it troubles me sometimes b/c i go outta key a lot, so i make a key change like for i song i have the chords,

e, a, g, f#. its in the key of d, my riff is over a phrygian, an f# phrygian, making it bminor, or d major. key of d, but then the bridge switches to

e, d, c, b, a, g, f#, which is the key of g. then i solo in g, go back to that bridge, in the key of g, then go to the main riff back to in d. work with it. not against it.
