This is a 2 parter. I came up with a chord progression and im trying to figure out how to name the last chord in it. The tones are CGCB, played like this:

---
-0-
-5-
-5-
-3-
---

Now, from what I figure it's a C5(15). Is this named correctly?

Part 2:
the other chords are played like so:

---
-10-
-9-
-0-
-9-
---

---
-10-
-9-
-11-
-9-
---


---
-6-
-5-
-7-
-5-
---

---
-0-
-2-
-2-
-0-
---

---
-0-
-5-
-5-
-3-
---

From what i've figured, it goes:
Dadd9
F#m7
Dm7/F6 (dunno about this one, could be either of them)
E sus4/A sus2 (same thing as with previous chord)
And the one I need help on.
Would this be a progression in F#?

I'll vote that first chord is a Cmaj7. Someone else can figure out the key.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

no. C5(15) is incorrect. that would simply be a C5, since a perfect fifteenth up from C is two octaves' distance. it's just a Cmaj7 with no third.

in this context, i would call your chords are Dadd9, A6, Dm7, Asus2, and Cmaj7.

after playing it, it sounds resolved on C. i'm going to go with C major being the key. you're just using accidentals.

part 1: that is a Cmaj7 with an omitted 3rd. a way to play it with the third would be X35453.

part 2:
Dadd9 = correct
F#m7 = correct
Dm7 = correct , F6 = incorrect (missing the 6)
Asus2 = correct, Esus4 = incorrect (has the A, which is the b7 of E)

doesnt seem to fit any progression i can tell (by ear anyways, could just be playing it weird). theory-wise, no its not F#, it has an F#m in it. with the chords provided it has no set key, as you have both major and minor D chords, rather, i submit it modulates between D major and another key.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

incorrect. he has the sixth. F A C D. 1 3 5 6. it's still Dm7 in this context.


Quote by TK1

also incorrect. the b7 of E is D. A is the fourth of E, and Esus4 is E A B.

listen closely to what you're playing. it doesn't modulate. there's only one tonality, and it's C. it certainly is a set key.
