Chord Practise
« on: May 05, 2011, 02:48:34 AM »
Have some one ever wondered why you were getting stacked in your playing yet having most of the theory behind chords, progressions & the stuff.

Well, a couple of days ago I discovered that I lost a good habit of chord practice that leads to quick recognition of chords no matter where or how they are played, this is a beginner staff anyway-practicing them in all inversions

I'll make an example in the key of C, so you move in half steps with the chords until you reach the next C chord

Major Sevenths 

C-E-G-B,   E-G-B-C,    G-B-C-E,   B-C-E-G

Minor Sevenths

C-Eb-G-Bb,    Eb-G-Bb-C,    G-Bb-C-Eb,    Bb-C-Eb-G

Dominant Sevenths

C-E-G-Bb,    E-G-Bb-C,    G-Bb-C-E,    Bb-C-E-G

Half Diminished

C-Eb-Gb-Bb,    Eb-Gb-Bb-C,    Gb-Bb-C-Eb,    Bb-C-Eb-Gb

I would go on and on with every chord type. As you can see I just made examples with the chords used on the major scale degrees i.e. I-ii-iii-IV-V-vi-vii ;D. Remember to move in half steps to get the chords in every key and you can put this to every practice method e.g. the so called circle of fourths/fifths

The reason I brought this here is that if one doesn't know a chord or its particular inversion, it takes long recognize it in a song or even use it in your playing from progressions.

Pls tel me if it makes sense or not.

You know how to form chords theoretically, but if I ask you to play a D flat diminished seventh in second inversion, do you know how to play it instantly? You like to play from lead sheets or fake books but you need some more chord practise? If not, then this is the program for you! Especially if you don't have anyone to help you practise chords (i.e. they call out a chord and you play it) with.
This Software helps you practise all kind of chords from major to major seventh chords in all their inversions. It even shows the Chord Symbols like you see in fake books.

Although chords may appear in their pure, simple form, in musical practice the notes of the chord are frequently arranged in a wide variety of manners, depending on the style and effect the composer intends.



can you give me some few examples of progressions that you've got :)
