In a piece in Gm there's some g - bb - c# - e chord... Especially the (♮6 confuses me, because otherwise it could be a Italian Sixth or something. I really don't know what kind of chord this is

Any help?

EDIT: maybe a c#m7(b5), but with the a# spelled bb because the note is bowed from a bb in an Eb chord from the previous measure

Still can't figure out what function an F B D G chord would be here

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.

Are you sure it's a #4 and not a b5? and a natural sixth and not a double flatted seventh?

Without knowing what piece you are talking about or how the progression looks, i'm just guessing it is a G diminished seventh chord. A 1-b3-b5-bb7. It makes more sense, but of course i can't know without looking at the context.

Yeah, it's just an inversion of C# dim 7.

Thanks! And FBDG is not in the snippet, it's the measure after the C#dim7
