Some of these [like quartel harmony] I haven't heard of, so I'll go study them. Should open some doors, THANKS.

How come you guys can write longer posts than I can?

The Beatles sometimes found chords that just wouldn't have occurred to me [and apparently not to many musicians of their time]. The Song "Sexy Sadie" for example has 1 chord, the F#, that comes right after the first chord, G. This is the kind of chord progression that will usually escape me as I use standard theory to work it out. Would explain more but this thing is limiting me to only 28 more characters.

Thanks for you input. I was working on a large reharmonizing project, and wanted to find more "exotic" solutions. I can do the the usual harmonizing ways, but - let me give an example:

Thanks! - this answer combined with the previous one made the connection.

Thank you! This will work perfectly. I really only need to find all the chords for C, then transpose that list for each note. It just didn't occur to me. I'm getting old and my brain misses the obvious too often now.

You're right, many notes wouldn't just match to a chord. There is usually a note here and there that really needs to be a part of the chord structure under it, especially outside of jazz styles.

Mark Levine - sounds familiar. Is there such a chart in one of his books? I'm not really looking for harmony theory, just a quick reference chart. I could make it myself, but figured someone already put in the time, don't want to have to reinvent the wheel, etc. I could also figure out the available chords when faced with a note, but I like to have a more "non-thinking" solution on hand because it's easier to keep track of what I've already tried.
