Alright, I hate to take away the beloved “Name that chord” thread. But, it’s time to start a new one. This will involve the combination of the also popular “Music Theory Game” from Hurlyz and the “Name that Chord” thread by Vigil. Thanks to both of you for creating some gems in the MT forum that many people can use to go back and quiz themselves and such. Unfortunately both of these threads will be closed, and hopefully archived for their wealth.

Now let’s get down to business, no spamming or flaming.

No POSTING OUT OF TURN, this will result in a warning/ban depending on your warnings situation. We will really be cracking down on this, so hopefully everybody will take the time to read the rules.

Also, if the person who named the chord correctly does not post a question within 24 hours then it's up for grabs to anyone.

Any question pertaining to music theory or naming chords is welcome.

Finally, welcome and have fun. Let’s get this started with an easy one.

What is the name of this cadence: IV-I?

Cheers

Anyways, I guess the 24hours rule still applies?? It says no posting out of turn but we don't want this to die huh??

Trust me, I myself dunno the name of the chord I posted =P. It came by when I was playing a riff, and I always use weird chords like these.

I'm lost now, who's turns it is? Oh well, I'll post a chord. If it is somebody's turn and they post their chord, scrap mine.

3454x3

There is three possible names, but I'll accept one.

Really it is St. Stephens turn because he nailed the last chord. So if you are confused, then the 24 hour rule takes place. If the winner does not post a chord in 24 hours, then anyone can take a turn. Other than that, don't post one.

EDIT: Ethan, you should likely put that in the first post as well talking about the 24 hour rule cause I dont think its in there.

Go to your staff paper and re-write this song a half step down so on the paper it'll be like you have a "C" just move it down to a "B#"




Know your theory, then play like you don't.

It was justin fraser's turn... not yours! Please wait for your turn... You'll probably get warned for this! (I can't do it but mods can )


As for the chord, it's probably G6 and Em7

Are we looking at the same chord? It should be

3 - G - b3
3 - D - 7
0 - G - b3
2 - E - 1
2 - B - 5
0 - E - 1

It wasnt my turn, and I kind of screwed up as well. I thought that fenderfrk10 got it right because i didnt see peanuts post, which really wasnt even 100% right, close, but not quite. So it was peanuts turn though cause I gave him (unknowingly ) the go ahead.

EDIT: and peanut just confirmed hurlyzs answer so your up karim.

EDIT: Can someone answer me about this post lol it was a question is the small letters signifiying a minor chord? ie, vi is a minor VI is a major?

Nope... He said fenderfrk10 nailed it... He posted before you!

And you didn't even get it right loll... you said I-V-VI-IV while it was I-V-vi-IV... not a BIG difference but still wrong!

Anyways it's not a big deal!


I will write a few chords, and you will have to tell me the notes that compose them, as well as the function they have in the chord (ie third, fifth, flat 7th, etc.)!

A°7
EbΔ9
G#ø
Balt
F9#11

Note: You've gotta get them ALL right to get "the turn"... and if you don't know what the symbols mean, google them because I've put them intentionnally
