GUEST,Sean MacRuaraidh Help: Ascribing guitar chords to music (15) Ascribing guitar chords to music 20 Nov 00


If I know what key a piece of music is in how can I work out which chords go with which bar of music ?

Given a Key I can work out the notes in the key,

e.g. Key is D Major(tone tone semi tone tone tone semi) Notes are D E F# G a B C# D

Also I can work out most of the set of chords that need to be used in the music.

e.g. Key is D Major chords are D Em F#m G A Bm C#dim D

Given a chord name I can work out what notes should be in the basic chord

e.g. chord is C notes are C, E, G ( first, third and fifth )

But I still can't work out out which chords go with which notes in the music ?

Is there a way of working this out - its driving me mad.
