I'm trying to expand my harmony (past the 7ths/9ths/sus4 which have served me fine for pop), and I constructed something funky. I never really got into chord vocab, so I don't know how to describe it so I can explore it more.
From the bottom up, it's: A E F# Bb C# (E)
I think it's A-something. Or is that F# actually a Gb, like a diminished 7th? In the model I was testing, the Bb would actually be an A# but that definitely seems unlikely.
I'm using it like this (link with audio):
- G6 (G D E G B)
- A??? (A E F# Bb C#)
- Bm9 (B F# A C# D)
