I need to find the answer to a question...

What are the most common chords you'd play in the key of G major?
Bass....How low can you go?????

Why not trying giving the guy a complete answer?

G, Am, Bm, C, D(7), Em, F#m7b5

Here is how it works:

1maj, 2min, 3min, 4maj, 57, 6m, 7m7b5

And in case your an idiot, here is how you find out what's sharp/flat in a key.

FCGDEB - This is your order of sharps - it doesn't change. Your key is a half step above the last sharp - i.e. - 1 sharp =key of G, 4 sharps = key of A

Now if your key has flats in it the order of flats (doesn't change) is

BEDGCF - go to the next to the last flat and that's your key.

Example - 2 flats = key of Bb, 4 flats - key of Db, etc...

Sorry that nobody wants to give you a good answer. This is kindergarden stuff.

I just answered his question. I didn't want to complicate things.


No, you gave him an incomplete answer that wasn't even clear. i.e. - maybe eminor? or complete - there are more then 4 chords in a key.

He asked for common chords. The I, IV and V chords are pretty common. So is the vi. Now, if he had asked what are the chords in G major?, then I would've gone through the list. But he didn't, so, I simply answered his question.

If you really want to understand WHY those chords sound good in G major, id suggest either checking out MT or the Crusades column. Theory will help your playing.

Isn't the sharps/flats FCGD-A-EB?

Basically, the stuff SenorSmiley is trying to teach you is the circle of fifths. It's good stuff to learn. I'm sure UG has a couple in depth lessons on it.

You obviously know SOMETHING about keys. Do you know the Circle of Fifths, or do you just know how to make scales?
