i thought this might be a good topic to discuss on this forum. lately, i have been reading such stuff as "healing power of music, how and why" or " psychological effects of chords or emotions in chords etc.I would like to know what you people think of it, or know more about it, that you would like to share.
In the simple form, Chords are a combination of three or more notes that blend harmoniously when sounded together.
i believe, the sound of different chords carry with them different emotional effect on us. Generally speaking, major chords sound happy. Minor chords sound angry, or possibly sad. Suspended chords leave you hanging in mid air. They create suspense or anticipation. may be thats why they are named like that, who knows. They sound and feel as though they should be resolved. Augmented chords are usually a setup. Like the suspended, you want them to resolve, but the augmented chord is more of a leading chord. or dominant?? It walks you into something like an entryway. Diminished chords may give you a feeling of continuance. yeah i know, these all feelings are subjective.... atleast i feel that way.... what do you think about all this stuff??
