    B7
    What a weird choice. Since equal temperement does it reall make such a difference (especially only with a single chord).

    E major

    Again, yes specific chords notes may sounds a particular way but what iss rreally important is (if you are writing tonally) whee they go. Of course if you are writing atonally then individual chords may be used just to creat an effect. Of course in the first half of the twentieth century many atonal writers (with the exceeption of berg and a couple of others) avoid the creation of tonal centres.

    mine is one that stravinsky was keen on. Two sets of tritones a perfect fourth/semitone apart eg C-Fsharp, F-B alll notes played at once. Interesting cos one of the resolutions is the dominant of the other.

    Does that chord have a specific name? Like Wagner's "Tristan" chord? I'll have to steal it for use in future compositions.

    I think they're probably talking about how easy the chord is for them to play rather than its sound!

    I must admit, I've always been a bit of a fan of the humble A minor chord.

    Minor thirteenths. I drop them into my comping whenever I get the chance

    A big fan of altered ninths as well. Can't go wrong with those.

    The minor thirteenth sounds just the same as the augmented 5th though doesn't it? It has the same notes.

    Unless he's looking at tabs the wrong way around, it may be the Low E at the bottom of that, in which case it would be Eadd11+ but with no 3rd.
