Subject: RE: Help: Figuring out chords
If you do have CoolEdit or equivalent software that can do spectral analysis then you can 'cheat' by isolating the chord that is escaping you and then feeding it into the analysis tool. CoolEdit is more convenient than most for this because you can put your mouse pointer over the peaks in the analysis and get an exact readout of the frequency it found. Then you can look up that frequency in the following table to find out what note you're looking at:

Note Frequency
A 110.0 220.0440.0880.0
Bb116.5 233.1466.2932.3
B 123.5 246.9493.9987.8
C 130.8 261.6523.31046.5
C#138.6 277.2554.41108.7
D 146.8 293.7587.31174.7
D#155.6 311.1622.31244.5
E 164.8 329.6659.31318.5
F 174.6 349.2698.51396.9
F#185.0 370.0740.01480.0
G 196.0 392.0784.01568.0
