Interesting Chords

Chords are either major, minor, diminished or augmented. In addition to these chords, there are still chords that could make your songs more interesting.

Let's take C chord as an example.

C major - consist of C E G
C minor - consist of C E flat G
C diminished - consist of C E flat G flat
C augmented - consist of C E G sharp

C9 - C, E, G, D (an additional D note)
Csus4 - C, F, G (an additional F note, but must resolve to C major)
C6 - C, E, G, A (an additional A note)
C7 - C, E, G, B (an additional B note)

An interesting fact is that you could just use the chords given above to play all the white keys from the piano for the whole song. I never tried it before... Maybe I should give it a try and test how it sounds like. I think it will be dull though.

It's been a long time!

It's been a long time since I last posted something! These few weeks I've been busying writing a new song as I wanted to join a music composition competition. Really hope for getting the consolation price as I have written something different from my previous pieces.

I've finished recording the piano piece that I'm going to post in the next post, but I'm still in the midst of producing a video for this song. So look forward to it!

Sorry for the long M.I.A and see ya!
