Music Composers Unite!
Lately, in the course of composing pieces, I have been obsessively fascinated with one particular chord...
NO, NOT THE TRISTAN CHORD!
It's a wonderful chord, but it's not the one I'm thinking of.
It's actually a simple minor 6 chord, F#minor6, for example.
I love this chord, as well as many different variations of augmented chords and 9 chords (major, minor, and altered). This got me curious to see what you all think are your favorite chords in music to hear, and maybe are guilty of overusing in your own compositions.
Can't wait to hear what you think. :)
Eric, I like 6 chords, because they strike me as modern - the 5th note and the 6th note comprise a major 2nd, which creates a bit of dissonance, and is something you don't see much in pre-20th century music. I think the best modern music gets away from those older traditions by introducing new notes
