I'm pretty sure this is in B major and it goes a little something like this:

1 6

3 4


B//// //// G#7//// //// B//// //// G#7//// ////

D#m(7)//// E/B//// E/B(16?)////


Barre chords. I'm playing it pretty fast with a consistent low E bass note. Could anyone identify the correct name for that last chord? I'm adding the F# on the high E sting with my pinky. An A sharp fits in pretty well here too.

^_^ What do you think? Sound right?

I like it. I'd really have to hear how you are using them first.

How are you playing the E/B in this progression? You can just tab it in this formula for me [000000]
Are you sure you don't mean B/E? Need more info.

yeah its def in B maj...however if your keeping the E in the bass the whole time it wouldn't be a G#7...that would have to be a C augmented 6th... technically...but i think that your going for is the E major sound there because of the G#....

@c_foster88 [779997] (Hence the E/B, since playing the 7 fret 1st string changes the root to B) Also adding the F# with the pinky on the 11th fret 6th string.

@Angusman60 I'm didn't mean I was playing a droning E note throughout the whole thing, just that I was playing the normal root notes on the low E string.

Well its not really a standard progression...but...If you made the G#7 a G#m7 then it would be in B however if you keep it it has to be in E

You're right. The progression is in E major not B major.

V V III III V V III III

VII VII(7) I I(sus9)

I'll add a video here in a minute.

Play it.


I'm afraid that the video and sound quality is pretty bad, but at least you get the idea.
