I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment Why is a C7 chord named a dominant seventh chord?
@DantheMan hence the common guitar pattern of D -> Dmaj7 -> D7, containing a descending note sequence D->C#->C

@DantheMan no. C major 7th contains a B (7th not of C major). C dominant 7th contains a Bb (7th note of C dominant).

@Tim I'm pretty sure he means slash chords - "M/B" I read as "main/bass".

Do you mean "transpose" - change to a different key? Or do you mean translate? If translate, into what format?

Loopstations are great if you're a multi-instrumentalists and if you're OK restricting your compositions to loopable structures. But there's lots you can't do with a loopstation (e.g. start a piece all-guns-blazing). Pay session musicians, and they won't argue.

C=1 D=2 E=3 F=4 G=5. "The 5th is known as the dominant". See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degree_(music)

@MatthewRead You're not adding another processor. You're using a fast processor instead of the slower, cheaper built-in one.

Thanks for the accept. I suggest you undo it for now though, and wait a bit -- you're less likely to get more answers when there's an accepted answer.
