I really appreciate someone skilled can correct or confirm, that I got it right here, concerning the chord name, circle of fifth and key progression.
- List item
I found this chord while fooling around: strings 1, 2 and 3 second fret, 4 string open, 5th and 6th string muted. That should be a Dmaj7 as I understand. - It have the D open as the root on string 4, F# as the third (III) on string 1 fret 2, and A as the fifth (V) on string 3 fret 2, and then C# as the seventh (VII) on string 2 fret 2, which then make it a Dmaj7. Is that correct?
Beautiful sound. I want to know what goes together with that, so I go to the Circle of Fifth and try to find Dmaj7 in the different keys. I find it in only the A and D key. Is that correct?
It does go pretty well together with the few chords I know in those keys. Is there some of the chords it goes better together with than others, like in this case, Dmaj7, will as a rule of thumb, go better together with the second circle? Or maybe another common way or rule of thumb to use, or is it simply trial and error and just listen to all of them and from that take the direction I want the song to go??
I use this smarty the circle of fifth found here: Circle of Fifths - interactive chord wheel
I am pretty sure I have nailed it on chord name.
the second I am not certain. Maybe it is also to be found in other keys? Is there a way to know what keys a certain chord will be in for sure, other than like I do, just turn the wheel and look it up in one key after the other??
As I luv to investigate the guitar this way, by just pulling and pressing some strings, this will be something that will happen over and over again for me. So I really would luv to get it corrected and right, as I explore the guitar every day and make notes and such.
Any skilled help and guidance is seriously appreciated! Please
