I am studying figured bass, and as a test I wanted to try and add figured bass symbols to the following passage marked with the pink arrow. I got stuck right at the beginning, because I am not sure what chord that is or how to number it.
The book I have says to first convert the chord into a close position triad, keeping the bass note the same, but I am not sure what triad DGE is. I assume it is part of a bigger triad but not sure. Maybe Em7 4/2? For the word "show" I get a G6/4 chord and for the word "you" I get a D 5/3 chord. Then the word "The" seems to be a D5 chord so question 2 is? how would this D5 be notated in figured bass?
