Im very bad at making chords myself so how do you make yours?
Unless you want to do pop chords in a major key and then you’d use “numbers” 1, 4, 5, and 6. You’d then duplicate the notes and duplicate them above the notes by two notes and by two notes again. Then edit them until you like how they sound.
Auxy shows only the keys in the selected scale by default. eg: If you choose the “C” scale and set it to “Major” , then Auxy only displays the keys in the C major scale.
This page lists chord formulas you can experiment with:
Example: Using that page, you can see that a major 7th is based on the formula 1-3-5-7, so drop a note on each of those numbers in Auxy. The forumula doesn’t have to start on the 1 every time, so you can start on any of the keys - then treat that as “1” and count out the 3,5 and 7 from that starting point.
How do you chords? Asking for a friend.
I just play around until I like my chords. Try not to just have four chords and one on each bar, it gets boring.
How to make dank Chords
adding 7’s, 9’s and 2’s really helps create tasty treats
Throw a m7b5#9 in there for a real kick in the guts!
Plenty of good tutorials on Youtube:
Gotta wrangle ‘em and tangle ‘em.
For basic triads: 3 notes, skip every other note in a major or minor key
You can move those notes to different octaves which will usually look like one note, skip 3 and then skip 4 or the reverse
You can then add more to taste
In chromatic, skipping three or four will get you a one octave major or minor chord. The rest applies
Add a 7th, make those chords s p i c y
easy way out - triads
1s, 3s, 4s, and 5s r boring sometimes, add 7ths and 2s for j u i c y sounds
The great thing is Auxy previews the resulting chord for you when you move a note on top of other notes. So it’s real easy to experiment. Just stack some notes, highlight/grab em, then move them around to see what sounds cool.
Yes. Just yes.
Get your bass/root note
add another note 7 notes up (also known as half steps/semi tones)
(major) - from the bass/root note and a note 4 from it (in between the bass/root note and the note 7th note
(Major chord equation: 0+4+3)
(minor) - the same as major but instead of moving the middle note up 4 you move it 3
(Minor equation 0+3+4)
(YOU HAVE TO STAY IN KEY THOUGH!! Only use the notes in that’s scale/key so your chord progression could be majors and minors!!)
And to get that future bass feel you can add 7ths
(major seventh equation 0+4+3+4)
(minor seventh equation 0+3+4+3)
you can also move notes around to different octaves
Hope this helps you I don’t have much music theory knowledge
Chords? First time I’ve heard of it.
Making it nice any easy for everyone…
Music theory can be mean sometimes😝
