so i have the first 2 chords: A# (barred) and C (barred). what would be the release chord? the third chord that would release the tension? ive tried almost every chord i know...is there a nice rule for finding these things out?
well returning back to the A# would release the tension.
no...it really doesnt. im trying to figure out a final chord to a song im writing. just play them real quick...it doesnt release it
Try F major
thank you! hahahahaha! thats perfect! is there a little mathematical trick to finding that out?
Well, if you call the A# a Bb instead, that's a IV V I progression in F major. There's no mathematical formula for what chords sound good, but you should read up on chord progressions and cadences.
u gotta just play with it till it feels nice and solid (oh yah awsum refference there)
