GUEST,Neil Lowe Help: Chord Theory/Questions (19) RE: Help: Chord Theory/Questions 31 Jan 00


Thanks for the response.

Hi Grey Wolf - I play guitar. The two chords I mentioned are ones I use occasionally. Needless to say, they're a little discordant. EA#B I play like a regular E major chord in first position, except I raise the major third (G#) to A# by playing the third string at the third fret. The Dm9-5 is a Dsus2 moved three frets up the neck and playing the first four strings (open E; F; C; open D). If I were to show them to someone I'd like to be able to say, "Here's a E-3add11," or "here's a Dm9-5" instead of "here's an E chord with an A# thrown in" or "Here's a Dsus2 moved up three frets." I thought there would be a way of pronouncing the name the chord program came up with.

Chris - yes....your theory classes helped me immensely. Thank you.

Mark - the way the program is set up, there is a graphic of a fretboard and a keyboard. You click with your mouse on the frets or keys you want to make the particular chord. Where you click a bubble with the name of the note pops up. If you click the notes for an Fsus4 (FBbC) what shows up in the bubbles are: FA#C - no flats. Either way the program calls this Fsus4.
