So, I was randomly playing some chords trying to write a song and came across this cool melody/rhythm. I know it's built around a common chord progression and scale, but I'm pretty sure I have heard it somewhere. Can you identify the song? Thanks.

I know that song and they have nothing in common except a similar rhythm.

Not a similar chord progression? As in the exact same chord progression?

They don't sound the same to me. Pieces is also Dm Bb F C. But thanks anyway.

I just read over my post and it was a bit aggressive, sorry about that mayn.

It may be in a different key but they both use a vi IV V I progression (I think, I don't claim to be a theory aficionado ) and that gives it the really similar sound.

Good lord, three songs in different keys posted so far and they all sound exactly the same.

Anyway, welcome to the depressing world of music theory where you begin to realize none of your rock/pop songs are ever original.


And this is what draws people to make avant-garde indian-influened psychedelic death jazz metal
I have nothing important to say

Which is why I love theory

I don't see why Chuckles would find it depressing to understand that boring unoriginal music is boring and unoriginal music.

The guitar part in "don't forget me" is essentially one long solo. Flea is playing the progression on bass.

If you call continually strumming eighth note versions of A minor a solo.

It's just kind of a build up to the solo. It's Frusciante, man, It's not what he's playing it's how he plays it.

Are we pretending that John Frusciante isn't a genius? What about the album Mother's Milk or Blood Sugar Sex Magik? Anything post BSSM is kind of 5 guitars all layered with effects, but still.

Anyway this doesn't have anything to do with the topic, I was just stating that the similar progression was played on bass in that circumstance.

The chord progression doesn't matter. The lead is what can get you in trouble.

I only have love for Frusciante. Don't Forget Me is actually in my top 5 of favorite solos. But to say it is only solo is just off man.

I've never heard these guys before, but I have that exact clean tone, except mine is a little more bassy. Wow.

Surprising. They were huge in the 90's. Try Skunk Anansie as well, you might like their guitarist's tone.

Eh, never really listened to the radio at any point in my life. That's a nice tone though. I love the chorus-y reverb-y sound with a bit of delay. (Can't remember if I have any other effects on it, I have a POD and set that tone up a while ago)

Nope, didn't even know they were a band until yesterday.

It's ok, you still have time to change.
