  1. Hello everyone. I have found out that Chinese pop song arrangements have these "transition chords" mostly in the last chorus which is the climax part. I have no idea how did they apply it and which theory does it related to. Here are two examples: 1. 有一種悲傷 A Kind of Sorrow This song is originally in the key of G major. In the chorus at 1:04, the chord progression is: Cmaj7 - Cdim7 - Bmin7 - Emin7 At 2:32, the song is transposed up to Ab major, as a climax and the chords are basically (Db - Eb - Cm - Fm) At 2:54, however, the chords are not directly transposed. The bass line goes like: Db - Eb F G Ab - C - F The second bar isn't just a bass line, but the whole orchestra changes which is a complete chord change. Does anyone have any idea what they are? 2. 说谎 Right after 2:22, there are 3 different chords with 3 bass notes played to match the lyrics, which is something similar to the 1st example. There are still a lot of songs which use this technique but I could not think of them at the moment. Please help me to figure out what is this all about. Thank you!
  2. Yeah and because I'm composing a song with a jazzy part in it, I want to use this chord progression. I know how the chords go but it's hard to figure out the exact chord names.
  3. I've researched for a while and now it looks like a lydian progression to me. Could it be: Am6 - E (-6) - C6 - F#m7 (-5)? Thanks.
  4. Hi everyone. This is a famous chord progression used in the chorus in pop songs, in the key of C major: F - G - Em - Am - Dm - G - C :|| However, there is a variation of this chord progression. After the repeat, the bass goes as: F# - F - E - Eb - D - G - C Can anyone figure out what are these chords? I'm assuming that they are: F#dim or F#m7-5 - Fm7 - C/E - Ebdim - Dm - G - C Here is an example of the chord progression: Thank you very much!
