Need help from people who know chords!

Im looking to find the chords to Deadmau5's track "Community Nap", unfortunately I do not know how to play the piano yet or read music (learning but very slowly).

If someone on here who is familiar with chords or has a way of finding out which chords are in that track I would really appreciate it. I would like to do a cover of that song once I am comfortable playing piano.

Cheers,
-Mongrawl

Re: Need help from people who know chords!

I dont know if that link works Spiritos, it opens the website and I can see all the chords listed but it seems to be missing quite a few of them and they arent listed at the right time in the song.

Ill try those ones evelon and see how it works.

Yes, that's it. The accents seem to change every now and then (some fifths, sevenths thrown in every now and then I think) but the core is that sequence on repeat.

Could very well be. It's a dutch project that just left beta-stage so it's probably got some issues to straighten out but sometimes it can give you a headstart.

Im pretty much just looking up chords for the piano on google images and working off that, B is definitely the first one while im playing along with the song. However C#m doesnt sound right and from looking up Aadd9 I for some reason cant even find it. Any thoughts?

C# Minor doesn't sound right? In what way?

Re: Need help from people who know chords!

you might want to look into instructional piano videos and/or books in order to be "ahead" of the song you want to learn. Alot of music theory about chors is just knowing how to read them. Right now you know how to play an Aadd9, but if I asked you a F#Add9 I don't know if you could play it right away. Learning about that stuff allows you to do stuff like "oh ok Em9#5 i never played this chord before but I know it would go like this"

I remember we had a book at Uni called "The geometry of music - Harmony and Counterpoint" I don't think I ever actually opened it?!
