Ok, so im writing and playing this song and the song "One" by U2 keeps poping into my head and so then i checked the cords on that song and it uses all the same chords im using except for one

so my question is, if i was to ever publish this song would they be able to sue me? or not because the chords arent exactly the same

I assume not, unless you copy the melody and rythm and completly plagarize it.

correct

That's why so many jazz songs are just melodies on top of chords of another song.

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

they wont be able to sue you. I am pretty sure the only things that can be copyrighted are the melody and the lyrics. Iim pretty sure thats it.
