Yes we. It is kind of creepy that someone on an internet forum gets sex isn't it?

Kinda tricky one...

Name each chord and resolve (correctly):

e:--5--4--3--4--4--6-
B:--5--5--3--3--6--6-
G:--6--6--4--4--5--3-
D:--7--6--4--2--3--3-
A:--7--4--5--------5-
E:--5----------------
    I


Hint: You'll need two chords

Ed: Err... code tags help, lol.

Okay, I am drawing a blank here. I haven't done this kind of thing in such a long time, so maybe Cor (or anyone else) can post a little lesson on how to resolve such progressions...

SHould be thinking tritone subs? Then... Bb -> E7 -> A

^ I'll make it easy then, since it went for half a day already... it doesn't resolve to I.

Do you mean two chords BEFORE the final chord, or 2 chords total (one after Bb and then the final one)?

Once again, I'm not big on resolution, I don't deal with it too much unfortunately (or, rather, I don't practice it in my music or on paper). And I think today is official "MT Regs' Off Day."

Well I can't get it either, it sounds like after the Bb there should be an Eb dominant something or other (13 maybe, or b9), resolving to Ab major.
#173
^ That would put MrScary up... good ears; the entire progression sets up modulation down a half step.

Wow I actually got one.

Alrighty then. I'm no good at making these things up, so I'll just throw down a chord I suppose.

All 4?

G Bb Db F
Gm7b5

F A# C# G
F+(9)

Bb Db F G
Bbm6

Db F G Bb
Db(b5)(13)

There are somewhere between 1 and 16 mistakes. I know the last one is wrong, I've been working with the enharmonic spellings and just can't make it into a proper chord.
#180
I would call 'em Gm7-5, Fsus4+(9) (ugly), Bbm6 and Db6-5.

I don't want my go though, if confirmed, I've been having some personal problems and am not currently reliable enough to be able to play properly. Sorry. I pass to Mr Scary.

Yup, go.

Fb, I guess... Db Eb F... minor third = Fb.

I posted that last night while reading through Levine's "Jazz Theory" book, and came across the diminished scales part... thought I'd be tricky with that. Then I constructed my chord by the stacking of the minor thirds, and realized my last note was a major third up... which didn't quite work out. So, I realized this at about 4am when I woke up momentarily....

Oh, I was wondering why you would want all four names for a half-dim chord, the edit makes much more sense.

And since Cor threw it to anybody, I'll just list another chord. It's pretty tricky, at least I think it is.

C# F# A# E G# D

F# = 5 1 3 b7 9 #5(=b6) = F#9+ (b13)

Bb = #9 b6 1 5 b7 3 = Bbalt

E = 6 2 b5 1 3 b7 = E-13b5

D = 7 3 #5 2 #4 1 = Dmaj7+#11 (lydian dominant mode)

I don't know, the F# and E roots are kind of rough... the D root (Dmaj7+#11) is clearly from a mode (lydian domnant)... however Bbalt works as well methinks.

I'll go with Dmaj7+#11.

#189
I was actually using C as the root, that was supposed to be the tricky part of it, the root was replaced with an alteration.

9 9 8 9 9 10
Db Gb B E Ab D

b9 b5 b7 3 b13 #9

I use this as a voicing for alt chords, in this one I was going for a C alt. The root was replaced with the b9th.

But your D root name works well, I think the Bb alt name is kind of weak, since it has only 2 of the alterations. The E root name isn't too bad either.

So you are up.
#190
I see I see. So the bass player covers the C? He would have to, lol...

Basic chord leading here. I'll give you 3 chords. Give me at least 3 more, with the last one being an ionian (maj or maj7). Follow basic chord leading rules. You can give me 5 or 10 chords, i don't care... at least 3, ending on ionian.

can somebody explain this perhaps to the people with far less knowledge of music theory? i don't care how complicated the explanation is, ill learn it, but i don't know real rules about resolving progressions

Any day now, any day now I shall be released"

Know any good teachers in NY, especially skilled in teaching ear training? Tell me
#195
^ The easiest rule of thumb, sir, is that you descend by fifth. So if you're in C, and you need to resolve from Dm, it would go Dm-G-C. Make sense?

There are other ways to 'resolve' a progression, but any time somebody is asking for the resolution to something, they mean by authentic cadence (getting the chord system to the fifth chord in an approprate key (V), and then moving to the tonic, or root (I)).

^yeah, like when I said "oh I see, up a 4th, down a 5th" I could have said "down a 5th, down a 5th."

Up a 4th = Down a 5th
Down a 4th = Up a 5th

Basically, Mr Scary descended by 5ths twice.

Bb major, the last measure has the b7th passing tone for the chomatic.

I would say Bb Bebop Dominant, but up to the last measure there is a major 7th.

So just Bb major.
#199
I was thinking Bb Bebop Dominant, but i could see where the major 7th could be viewed as a passing tone. probably not too good of an example.

oh well, you're up mrscary

The natural 7th is supposed to be a passing tone in bebop dominant. In your example the natural 7th doesn't really seem to be used as one, it leads somewhere else.

Here's a chord. It's a tad tricky :
