Hi Kingpantzer, seems to be an ongoing discussion between us, haha! I have never seen G11 written on a chord sheet in jazz, never. Not in all the years playing jazz professionally (sorry to bring this up!!). I did see them however in sheets made by students but they were mistakes. If you write G11 y...

That is a change chord symbol G11!! This chord actually does not exist and I would guess this is en error. The 11 would be a C and this conflicts with the third of the chords a B. So mayby you are right and the chord should be F/G or Gsus4(9/11). Looking at the chord progression thats probably it. S...

Okay this is getting to be interesting: I like what you said especially: "...As such, Riemann, Schoenberg and Rameau (and others) all fail to actually deliver what they promise. They give a system of categorization but not a syntax. They ignore that harmony and melody are two sides of the same coin ...

Haha, good question: Ok green day doesn't use (power chords mainly) them but Keane uses the sus2 thing every other chord for example! Sting, Jobim, Doobie Brothers and many others use the altered S frequently. So my question would be: Why is it that people alwayse overlook the possibilities of alter...

Jazz tunes

Example: s-6 D T There is no way to write this in Roman Numerals except the faulty: bII6 V I which gives the impression that in the key of C the fi...

IV for IV

Its so much simpler then that! If we all would start using Rieman's notation system these things would not be a problem: Ok, here it is: There are only three chords: T (Tonic) S (Subdominant) D (Dominant) Three extra rules: - both S and D create tension that wants to resolve to T. D creates more ten...

Serbs Chord substitutions article

Hello all, I just went over some of the articles. I like the Serbs article on chord substitution but find it very odd however he does mention sus4 chords but forgets sus2 chords and that he doesn't write about the most important and commomly used group of chord substitutions: altered subdominants (#...
