well we don't call them cords we call them lines.....not much a fan of manila....or polypropylene....like nylon the best it stretches a bit....and is not too hard to tie with like poly...and is easier to splice than manila....(and lasts longer).

Isn't there a chord (usually done on the piano) called "the devil's chord?" I've heard it before but I can't remember what chord it is. It's a great chord for ominous-sounding music. Anyone know what it is?

Umbilical. May I ask a question of you 53? Which of your many recent questions on "favourites" has been your favourite?


Post - Top - Home - Printer Friendly - Translate

Subject: RE: Your Favorite Chord
From: mousethief
Date: 04 Apr 02 - 03:05 AM

C. The plain old, first-position one. Gives you the full octave to pick over right in the middle, with slop room on the bottom (for walk-downs and -ups) and on the top (for melody runs). And I can sing in that key most songs that aren't plagal.

I keep wearing out the first fret on the 5th string of my guitars because of it. Shall have to learn to re-fret them or something.

From: Fortunato
Date: 04 Apr 02 - 12:20 PM

I prefer 53's threads to the non-music threads. The opportunity to discuss specific guitars is appreciated by many. Personally "American Bashing" and discussing Charles Manson, etc, have no interest for me. I'd much prefer to talk about guitars and chords.

I agree with Amergin, Cflat, if you don't like the threads, don't sign on.

Bob, I have three answers. First, I love to sing in A and D. I prefer to play A in the open G position with the capo at the second fret and D in the open C postion with the capo at the second fret. But for sound only I love the 6/9 chord.

53 you keep posting, I always read them, even if I have nothing to add. regards, Fortunato

Hey, what's your favourite foot to walk on? Or your favourite gear for driving in? ;-)

If I'm playing around, it'll usually be in key of A, Am, Bm, C, D, Dm, E, Em, F or G - they're all handy for playing stuff in. No real preferences. Although a G chord in drop-D or double-drop-D sounds sweet.

Almost always though, I play capo-2 or capo-4 to suit my voice.

Graham.

Well, favourite chord? That's about as twisted as having a favourite note. But that's what I like about Bob53's posts, there's a kind of twisted logic about them.

My favourite chord is the one which works the best to my ears when needed. Sometimes as rare as the Holy Grail.

Well done Bob, you've kept folks talking about something musical!

Peace, Mooh.

Subject: RE: Your Favorite Chord
From: GUEST,Claymore
Date: 04 Apr 02 - 06:18 PM

An Em for a jig such as Morrison's; it says shit's gonna happen...

An Am for a reel such as "Groweling Old Man, Grumbling Old Woman" for the same reason...

And Bm for the waltzes, like "Two Rivers" or "Far Away" 'cause it's a sweet minor that tells you that nothing bad is going to happen.

(Fmaj7 is what you should drink a single malt scotch to... while the open G is strictly a beer chord...)

Em9, for a dollop of dissonance along with the sadness JenEllen mentioned ... chorded this way from from bottom string to top: E;D;G;F#;B;E (or for a different sound from the same chord: F#;D;G;E;B;E)...

A close second is this strange creature: F#;D;G;F#;C (or substitute E for one of the F#'s)....

I've never gotten into open tuning, I would like too but it seems that every time I try my guitar always comes up flat, so that I spend more time tuning that playing.

Try starting out in E, move back and forth between E, A, and B7 for a bit. Then when you're on A and ready to move back to the E, play a C instead. Pause. Then return to the E. Aaaahhh!

Pru minor & Prim major.

A good friend didn't know the names of these chords & wanted to remember them somehow. So I said, why don't you name them after your cats - so she did & she always remembers them now.

OK, I confess, I sing a bit, possibly not a real musician.....
