Fixed it up for you.


This technically is using counterpoint theory. I'm not sure which species.


The first chord is Dsus2sus4. The second is G maj9 (omit 3.) The third is D#maj7b5. The last is G add9.

K so is there anyway i could play this in standard? Cause the Dsus 4 appears twice but they technically emphasize to different notes in the chord so they sound different? If u could tab something out i would really appreciate it

I guess I need to review counterpoint and some other stuff.

yeah, do that

just because it uses oblique motion? by that logic, anything that uses the other three types of motion (parallel, similar, contrary) is also utilizing counterpoint theory. which basically means that all music uses counterpoint theory, which is simply not true.

i wouldn't even analyze them as separate chords. i'd look at the harmony as being Dsus4 and the melody as being D - E - C# - A. no need for that sus4add9 stuff. it's just a melody over a harmony.
