so the m7b5 -> maj7 resolution sounds really good..but for the life of me (must not be thinking right?), i cant find the key that it is in.


e-x---x-
B-6---5-
G-5---4-
D-6---5-
A-5---3-
E-x---x-
Dm7b5 -> Cmaj7

D F Ab C
C E F B

C D E F G Ab B C
(The G is assumed)
But what is a major scale with only a m6?

The only other scale (that i can think of) where C could be a major chord is C lydian...but theres no Ab in C lydian
C D E F# G A B C
it would still have a m6, along with the #4.


could anybody help me?
O.S.I.

This is like something I've been studying called "mode mixture".

Basically, in this case, the m6 is sometimes used in major. You can get a minor iv chord or fully diminished vii7, but in this case you went with ii half-diminished 7. I'll look again tomorrow to see if I can explain better.

wow that does sound nice. I would say its in c major, with the Ab as an accidental. sorry.

yeah, i figured it was in C major. I dont really understand what you were saying (Psychodelia), but hopefully you will be able to inform me on it later?

it frustrates me, because i feel like i know a good amount of theory, but this has stumped me.
