I dont know too much music theory and I need some help. Ive figured out a tune on these notes:

E F# A B G# D# C#

Its kinda slow and melodic, the thing is that I dont know what chords to play it over. I dont even know what key its in. Could you guys help me out?

It's in E major.


The chords in that key are Emajor F#minor, G#minor, Amajor, B7, C#minor, D#dim.


So depending on the notes at a certain time you would use one of those chords.

Indeed. Forgot continuing with the sharps in the key.


TS, the chords are listed are the order of chords in a key. Check out the MT FAQ where it's explained quite nicely.


EDIT: www.musictheory.net might have something as well.
