    Is your organ at hand? A keys question about a note and chord.

    I'm trying to nail down the chord progression for a song I'm writing.
    I'm citing Wagner, as Jimi Hendrix did a few times, as my influence here.
    No piano is available. I'm hoping a keyboardist's left hand can help determine.

    Here's what's probably going to be the chorus.
    It works better for me on guitar, and singing, with E bass under A minor.
    With a wider accentuation of notes on keyboards, how does this work for you?
    The D minor entering on the second syllable of amaze? Does it work?
    Chord notes progress right to left, low to high.

    B.......C.......D...C...B......G..G .....E...E......D...D...C....C..... A.. E
    Share these fee-ee-lings, a-maze our mind our bo-dies move us now
    E minor............................ D minor..................................... A minor

    Share these feelings, astonish me my body by coming down (same progression)

    E minor, lowest chord: EBEGBE
    D minor seventh variant, highest chord: ADACFE
    A minor variant, step down from D minor variant: AEACEE

    After the second vocal line, ending "by coming down"
    A minor variant lowers to a G major variant: GDGBDE
    G major variant lowers to a D minor 7th variant: ADFADE
    D minor variant lowers to an F major 7th variant: FCFACE

    Stately, not ponderous, but chords meld to sound more airy.
    The E on the E string "drone" should meld chords, a softer sound.

    Hmmm! I see ten views, but no replies.
    If anyone thinks I'm explaining things too simply,
    I'm just trying to allow inexperienced English users to understand.
    Maybe I should message one of my Inuit friends to try throat-singing it.
    A little oxygen deprivation goes a long way.
    A lot of oxygen deprivation takes you even further.

    I know there are members here who can mentally suss this out.

    My answer won't help you. I haven't the foggiest, old boy.

    It took almost a day to get back, and thanks for leaving your own note,
    GoneBaroque. If it was a harpsichord piece, would that be better for you?

    Yes, that was last Friday, now it's Monday, with 51 more views and no musical feedback.
    I think, and still do, that these notes and chords, even if played as Em, Dm and Am,
    are easy, even if I feel it's one of my stronger melody lines with words.

    I know I'm not standing behind the maestro's music stand, batons at the waiting,
    and for sure I'm not sitting in front of a keyboard, home upright or cathedral pipe organ.
    teddy asked about me putting up some of my music here, what I've never done anywhere online,
    and I thought getting a melody out for the musical perusal and attempts at play for any viewers here,
    was a nicer, more inclusive thing to do.

    61 views means people are looking... looking... maybe not interested without a booking.
    "Share these feelings", better than a free visual link.
    Can you visualize "The Great Wall of China" more than "Hadrian's Wall"?
    Just testing your ability to freely visualize. Can you compositionalize?

    Those "61 views" can be anybody or anything (search engine bots for example) with an internet connection. With the exception of Area 51 one does not have to be logged in as a forum member in order to "view" postings here.
