I was thinking of suggesting the Talkbass T-Shirt, Bassists Hang Low... Too risque?
I like it!! 'Course, you could say the same thing about my Dachshund!!
I'd go for that... I'd like a T-shirt with Gone Fishin? on the front and a bass clef on the back with "NAH!"
But normal people are morons, and they won't get it. Yeah, in-jokes are cool, but only if the other person finally gets it after a few minutes.
My vote is still for What Part Of Cxsus4b7b9#13 Don't You Understand?
I like that one.
The x, and the b7, and the #13. Or is the x supposed to mean double sharp? Since 7 is assumed to be flat anyway, b7 would be the same pitch as 6, so it would be pointless calling it b7. And, #13 would be the essentially the same pitch as 7 - so it's pointless calling it #13. So what you really mean is D13b9(sus4), or somesuch.
True, but this way makes it look more complicated.
Why would the 7 be flat anyway? You're right that #13 is the same pitch as b7 (admittedly I didn't think about it much as I typed it in )
Because in chord symbols, 7 means flattened 7th - i.e. the minor 7th of the scale. So, to flatten that would give you the 6th. But it's all hypothetical anyway - you don't see b7 in chord symbols, and you don't see #13 either.
Obviously I realise you were just typing it out like that to make it look complicated But if you're gonna put a complicated chord symbol on a T-shirt, at least make it a valid one
I could have sworn I have seen both b7 and #13 in chord symbols before... true, they weren't in the same chord though.
At any rate... any big long chord symbol that will make a non-musician poop in his/her pants would do just fine
I saw a sign a while ago with "Bass players do it deeper" my girlfreind at the time was gonna buy it for me but the shop was closed and some *insult unsuitable for public view* caused some *coarse slang meaning "poo"* before the stall opened so we had to scram .
Hmmm... find me examples I don't see any reason why there would ever be either of those in a chord symbol, really. #11, sure, but 13? And why put b7 in a chord symbol when 7 is flat anyway? Making it flatter would give you a 6.
I stand corrected on the b7 - that should have read m7...
I'm still sure I've seen a #13 before - I will have a look and see.
In the meantime, how about this...
What part of viim7b5 (III7) / vim (vim/V) / bvm7b5 (VII7b9) / IIIMaj7 (iim7) V9 don't you understand?
That one is an actual progression and not something I made up!
