Humm...I think you have a better chance to get the right answer in the SONGWRITING forum. A brand new sub-forum moderated by James Lugo and Blast 9.

There is a lot of music theory involved in order to reach a conclusive response.

In this brand new sub-forum moderated by James Lugo and Blast 9, there are a lot of very smart good people, that I am certain will explain to you, without ridiculing of course, the solution that you are searching for. Good luck.

Excellent question, by the way. http://radioparadise.com/scripts/tin...con_bounce.gif

Yes. Songwriting forum is definitely the right place for this question Sqye. Don't get too frustrated man. It's all a learning experience.

Enginearing 5th July 2013 03:10 PM

The answer is probably dissonance, but as we know it's relative.

kafka 5th July 2013 03:15 PM

I know. I hate how music has all these *notes* and things. It's like, I can never get anyone to see my true genius, because there's all this, I don't know, stuff they make you learn first. Someone should seriously just make a list of all the notes you can play together, cause I can do all the rest. Or maybe someone could write an app that does it all for you. I'd definitely pay a couple dollars for that.

You're just one step away from a real answer.

Lol, that comment made my day.

A chord or rather called a triad is made up of the first note in the scale, the third and the fifth. and depending on the tonality of the third will make it major or minor. I wont get into other types of chords right now, that is something you'll have to discover as you progress through music theory-which I think is a much needed asset as an engineer or producer.

The only difference between a G major Chord and an A major chord is each note in the chord is just one whole step up. so a g major chord is made up of the three notes G-B-D.
all an A major chord is, is just a whole tone or step up. so A-C#-E.

or G minor chord is G-Bb-D and then A minor would be A-C-E.

creegstor 5th July 2013 06:06 PM

The real difference is a capo at the second fret.

jeremy.c. 5th July 2013 06:47 PM

I'd offer to step up on this one, but my opinion is worth more than a few cents.

ssaudio 5th July 2013 08:27 PM

Well, it's my experience that (pupil/teacher aside) as soon as these questions are asked the conversation, never mind the situation, usually goes tits up...usually funny in hindsight, though ;)

It really depends on what you're tuning to...

kafka 5th July 2013 11:02 PM

It's Keith Richards with a capo.

There are many possible answers Grasshopper...

For example, the rock answer:

"G is the chord of the rock gods! People whose playing is the envy of other musicians, whose mammoth stadium gigs are full to the back rows, whose nights are an endless stream of wild parties and mindless, abandoned sex with groupies, band mates and unsuspecting small animals before spending the following day sleeping it off in the private limo/jet en route to the next gig. Whereas A is played by whiny-ass hippies in jazz bars who write endless banal drivel about why they can't get laid, how tragic the world is and the colour yellow."

Or you might have the EDM answer:

"Hang on, which one is G and which one is A again?"

Or the dubstep answer:

"What's a chord? Is that like a cable for connecting stuff?"

Or the Gearslutz answer:

"What's the difference? You must be sh!tting me man - it's night and day! Night and day I tell you!! If you can't hear that you need your ears checking or you're a f***in noob!"

There are many others. When you have found them all and can walk along this manuscript copy of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14 in C sharp minor without leaving any trace, then you will be ready to leave.

An A chord is like a G chord on steroids. Meaning, it has tiny balls and is prone to kill it's entire family in a fit of rage.

GeneHall 5th July 2013 11:56 PM

Are you referring to the intervals offs chord? If you can clarify your question you might get the help you're looking for...:)

"A chord" is any chord.

Therefore,

"G chord" is "A chord".

I wasn't asking about any of those lame-ass A and G chords.

I was asking about REAL chords - you know, like with upper structure accidentals en ****.
