    What's the next chord?

    It's a little game...

    Here is a chord:
    [MP3]http://www.soundpeak.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=83&d=1367530023[/MP3]

    I have no idea what it is called.
    (I call it 'Simon', no doubt is has a proper name like C# sus2 or something...) I think it is an interesting chord to start us off.

    It looks like this on a piano.



    And it looks like this on a guitar for all I know! Sorry guitarists; your instrument is a mystery to me. :happy-smiley-huggy-face:



    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to choose the chord that follows it. It doesn't have to be complicated or fancy. It could be a Fm for example, (or perhaps C+F+G#+C#+F - whatever that is called?) But it should 'work' with the previous chord.

    The next person chooses the following chord until we have a sequence of chords that could form the basis of either a terrible song or a fist fight over whether that C natural actually belongs there.


    It's a bit like word association football only with chords.

    And it is just an experiment to see what happens. A bit of fun. Join in! You never know what might happen next.


    So; what's the next chord?

    Yes 'Simon' would resolve to C#.

    chord 1: G#,C#,Eb,Ab
    chord 2: G,C#,Eb,G
    chord 3: F#,B, C#,F#
    chord 4: F,B,C#, F
    chord 5: D,G#,B,D
    chord 6: C#,G,Bb,C#

    realize 1 leaves off the C# as the lowest note in the first chord.. this converts the key to G# instead.
    thats the intro and could be used as the first verse

    so give me the next chord and will write the sub chorus.

    get groovy ..
    enjoy

    iḿ just doint inversions to make it sound jazzier. im also trying to do drop the bass note in each of my chords to make it progress one step at a time downward...
    i dont know if the Eb would work without having something in hand.. but i have a feeling that could very well be the NEXT chord.. i think it would work in the scale
