Well Hbriem, I have learned some time ago that saying someone is "wrong", especially when it comes to music theory is a tricky thing to say. Noteboat explained it really clearly: when it comes to minor there are many possibilities. Maybe I could add that I have found that usually when people talk ab...

- There is no conceivable way for the chords to be in C minor since C-7 is not part of that key. - Eb major does not consist of the same notes as Cminor: Eb major: Eb F G Ab ->Bb<- C D Eb C minor: C D Eb F G Ab ->B<- C - I see no way for Ddim to be part of C minor except as an inversion of Bdim (VII...

Hi Jason, Your progression is very similar to that of "This Love" but it reminded me more of "Always on Time" by Jarule and that is because of the key of the song. Your progression on first sight seems to be missing a tonic (we cannot just disregard the m7, because they dictate different tonalities!...

Brace Yourself!

Ok, this one is kind of an acquired taste. The group playing is Dutch tango group "Tango Dorado". The group specialises in playing music in the style of the great Osvaldo Pugliese and the music of the legendary "Octeto Buenos Aires". The latter is interesting for guitar players, because the music is...

Thanks a bunch, Arjen and Vic. As you already might have noticed I decided to stick around. But if I start to annoy people with my posts please let me know as well, sometimes I don't know when to stop! Arjen, there are already two songs for you to hear: 1. Caravan (with Stochelo Rosenberg) it's post...

Hi Naviens, The G+ is not a chord in Bb directly but it is however an altered dominant for a chord degree in Bb -> II . So we say: a secondary dominant (or "subdominant" in Dutch) for II (C-). A tiny (and hopefully short) note: G+ indicates that the fifth is sharp, I've written this symbol in the pa...

Wow dude, I guess you're right!! I can get carried away sometimes (or often) especially when it comes to music. I'll keep it in mind (how's this for a short post!!)

Maroon 5: "This Love"

I was just listening to the radio when Maroon 5 came on with "This Love". It reminds me of what I "experienced" the first time I heard this song (I almost fell of my chair, which is quite an accomplishment seeing that I was in my car :)) It could be interesting to look at this song harmonically. Fir...

Really? You like Birelli Lagrene best? mmmm. Well, I do like his more modern jazz stuff, that is actually really great. But his django stuff is a bit dissapointing, I was just discussing this with Stochelo the other day. I have some recordings from a 12/14 year old Birelli and those are indeed prett...

Glad you liked it! Some answers: King wrote: "...I actually do find it odd in that you have the desired music transcribed out, so in every instance where you use a slash chord it's entirely superfluous as the information is already there.

OK, the continuation of the harmonic breakdown (I hope someone is interested in this stuff!!) third bar (bar nr. 8 ) C- G+/B C-7 F7/A | the simple progression is just: |C-7 (II) F7 (V) | but I use a very old trick: a chromatically descending bass line starting on the root of the II (C-7) and ending ...

Hey King, just noted this, missed it the first time I read your message: "...My current teacher and mentor has studied with Johnny Smith and played everywhere. Broadway pits, solo tours of the states and europe, even sharing the stage with guys like Dorado Schmidt..." Thats funny because I just put ...

Aha, now I see our little misunderstanding: You were talking about (rootless) voicings and I was just talking about complete chords (roots). This is the confusion when you talk about "inversions", in the strict sense this means that the bottom note is the bass note, but of course you could also talk...

Hehe, never ending discussion it ssems... first King wrote: "...But simply writting Asus2->A or Dsus4->A as your chord progression doesn't imply ANYTHING about the base line..." Well, that must be an agreement amongst musicians your are playing with. In my circles the notename of the chord should be...
