It might be obvious, but when it comes to harmonic intervals/chord recognition, my ear sucks, and progress has been extremely slow.

Please, what kind of chords/progressions are these?

song 1
song 2

I want to know where these, and other similar-sounding progressions/vamps, come from...

You know, that was my suspicion when I first heard it, but since I felt lost, I quickly disregarded it. I don't know why I felt so lost... Maybe it's because of the unfamiliar synth sounds or piano voicings, but I've played around with maj 7 chords on the guitar, so you'd think I would have some idea. I take it they're probably either not diatonic progressions, I-IV-V kind of deal or just vamps? I'll try to figure it out as soon as I get my hands on my guitar (which is still the only way I can figure out most things by ear).

Well, thanks!

I think it was the voicings that made them sound pretty random. I think it's just the same "position" moved up and down and that gives it kind of strange sound.

The first song is Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Bbmaj7 Gmaj7 Fmaj7 Gmaj7.

The second song is Fmaj7 Abmaj7 Cmaj7 Ebmaj7 and then some random sounds (that are pitch bended maj7 chords).

Simple enough. Thanks again!
