  • C7M / Em° / Bbdim7

    Do you know of any online translation tools that can covert guitar chord symbols to the list of notes? I can find things that want to do fretboard positions, but as I'm not a guitar player that's not very helpful (and I'd really prefer not to have to do the next stage of translation by counting semitones from the note each string is tuned from). I do chords on keyboard intruments, you see :-)

    • The notes would be :
      C7M : C-E-G-B
      Em° : E-G-Bb-Db
      Bbdim7 : Bb-D-E-Ab
      A7 : A-C#-E-G
      und so weiter.

      -- The other day, I was sitting on the piano, enjoying five minutes of quietness, and began to try to play Monk's Dream, a tune composed by Thelonious Monk in 1952 or 3. I came up rapidly with those chords, sort of. They appear to work strangely together, sounding both unusual and familiar, orienting the improvisation in unexpected paths. Monk's Dream is known to have caused problems to the contemporaries of Monk, unlike some other of his compositions that were regularly played by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis or Dizzy Gillespie. (And I'm known to be compulsively obsessed by Monk's music since I'm 15.)
