    OK, I have been workign on a line for a song that me and some friends are puttign together. I'm just not sure about the last chord in the progression.
    D - Bm - G - ____ I am leanign towards A or Maybe Am, but I'm not convinced it is exactly what I want.

    I"m wondering what your suggestions for a chord(s) to finish things off and resolve back to the D would be. The song is mildy depressing. Not a tears fest, but it has a sad edge to it.

    Thanks,
    Travis
     
  2. some variant of E?
    I like that. Obviously depends on how the song is played.

    Thanks Drake,
    I pulled out the old six stringer, and tried it out. It sounds great Major, The Minor is not really suited to the song very well. I think the Major could be a keeper though. :D

    I'll try it, and any other suggestions, tomorrow with the rest of the boys.

    Thanks, Travis
