    Chord Identification

    Okay, lately I've been messing around just playing with random chords and every now and then I would find a progression I really liked. Unfortunately, I'm not exactly sure what chords I'm using, so while I know that I like the sounds I'm not really sure what the actual relationship between them is. I know there's a way to identify each chord without fumbling through pages of chord diagrams but I'm not exactly sure how to go about finding this information out. Can someone help me out by giving me some examples of identifying the name of a chord?

    Couple of choices ----- Identify the notes you are sounding, cross out any duplications and then see where they fit in a chord formula, i.e. C, E, G is the 1, 3 & 5 note of the C scale and makes a C chord, C, Eb, G is Cm.
    Click here for the formula

    Or..... remember the fingering you used and then go to the following chord generator -- it will let you put the dots on the fretboard and then it will tell you what you invented. Click here

    Whole lot easier if you go about it the other way around, i.e. work out what you want and then go make it ---- Click here for a site that tells you which chords like to go with each other Go to Lessons, then common chord progressions.

    The maximum speed of my metronome is only 208 bpm. I have a way of using it for a longer time. I will play quintuplets, sextuplets, 32nd notes, etc. There is no limit on your metronome. God only knows if you start playing 29 notes in one beat, with the speed of 252 bpm.
