Hello friends! Well,i was preparing a new dance hit for this summer,and got this one!

http://www.internetdj.com/song/82276

The thing is,i want to remix it,but i want to use other synth sounds,specially on the main riff,now here is the problem:

I CANT FIGURE OUT MY OWN SONG

the main riff in the very beggining,i want to know what are the exact notes/chords,so if any of you can help me with your infinite knowledge i would really appreciate it :) if you remember,i know almost no theory

Thanks

You can use this too find the root of the chords,maybe make it a little easier for us,or you(us) to give us an idea of key,etc. It would take a good,developed ear too to transcribe this by ear.Do you have any clues for us,range,key,Maybe some idea of anythimg you remember about playing it.?

I guess this can be a guideline.

the notes are like you said:-----G--Eb-D--Eb
and harmonizes with the notes: Eb-C--Bb-C

these are all notes in EbMaj/Cmin(same thing except if you play it from Eb its EbMaj and if you play it from C you get Cmin-theory)

but this song has more of a minor "feel" to it so go for that :)



as for the chords:

Eb and G = EbMaj(without the 5th)
C and Eb = Cmin(no 5th)
Bb and D = BbMaj(same)
then back to cmin

hope this helped

@gs ypu dont neccesarily need a good ear to figure out a slow melody....you can just guess and check :)

i have an excellent ear(c-o-c-k-y ness) from the training that i do. heres the method.

strum every note on every string(or the high e like i did) from E to E until the sound of the note gets "engraved" into your head. and as you do that, hum the note and say the name of the note at the same time.

Hmm well Its still fun XD.Plus your ear can never be too developed.Not matter how much you think its developed,theres always a certain frequency that might not stick in your head so well,so its best not too get lawled in to a false sense of thinking its good enough,because us musicians,the second we become satisfied,we might as well just chuck our instruments in the river.
