Ok, so lately i've been working on this new song that i thought i finished but know i think it would be cool to add a key change in there somewhere( I hope this is the right place, i always get it wrong).

Anyways the progression is Em C Dmadd9 Am. I was planning on taking this up a whole tone so it would be F#m D Emadd9 Bm, there's not really enough chords to figure out what key its in, well for me anyways. I was just wondering if you guys had any suggestions on a chord that would fit nicely in between the key change to make it nice and smooth.

If you need help i'll also post a midi(you can import with guitarpro)version of the song in case you want to get a feel for it.

by the looks of it, that Dmadd9 is a key change all in itself

Naw, it would just mean that he's borrowing a chord from the E Phrygian scale rather than remaining completely in natural minor.


Anyway, the song starts in E minor and goes up to F# minor, so there are your keys; it's definately not C major.


I'd try playing 2 measures of an E chord between those Am and F#m chords or something like that. Am E is a common thing, and E F#m works well, so stringing them together works for me.
