Tricky Chords

Hi folks, can I or can I not at all have 9th chords (minor 9th and major 9th), as well as, let's say D7(#5#9) sound when I actually press those chords in my left hand? When I have a major 9th chord ALONE I invert it (by adding a major 2nd to the tonic triad) and it works, but that's not the case if the chord is a minor 9th; as soon as I add the minor 9th (C minor9th) the chord registers as the relative major chord with an added minor 7th). I wouldn't bother figuring it out if the piece I'm playing had only 1 or 2 of those chords; unfortunately Shakatak's songs are literally full of augmented, diminished, etc. chords. Thanks if you have any idea. smiling

Re: Tricky Chords

Hi Rosi,

The Chord Finder will show you all of the chords that it is possible to play using the auto accompaniment.

Check out Page 55 of your manual.

If the chord you need isn't there then you would have to play it manually or sequence it. You could also play a similar chord and then convert the APC sequence to actual parts. Then go back and step edit individual notes.

Note that not all Styles are programmed such that they can play all of the chords in Chord Finder. Most should.

Best wishes,
