I'm an amateur, self tought, musician whos's struggling to learn music theory without knowing solfège. I'm trying to make harmonic analysis of easy pop tunes to practice and learn.
This song in particular (as problably all) got several ways to think of it in terms of harmony.
Song chords are:
EbMaj7 - Cm - Gm - F - Fsus2
Searching the web I found an analysis on a page called "hooktheory" as follows...
IVMaj7 - ii7 - vi - V - Vadd9
But I tend to avoid thinking that there's no chord
I ! (makes me a little nervous)
My first attempt was probably a very noobish one... I started with the belief that it starts on the
I chord... so it would be:
IMaj7 - vi - iii - II - IIsus2
II is a non diationic chord. It could be a secondary dominant (
V7/V)... but since it's not a dominant chord I believe it isn't right. is it?
And finally I realised I feel some kind of relief when it comes to
Gm... so treating it as the
i chord it would be...
VIMaj7 - iv - i - VII - VIIsus2
I know it may depend on someone's interpretation... just wanted to know what you guys think it's the most appropriate and any tips as general guidelines for aproaching the analysis of a tune.
Thanks in advance!, I love this site as it helps me a lot to read people here (at least the things that I understand). If my question is not allowed here, or needs to be changed let me know. It's my first question here, don't even know if i'm allowed to ask yet.
