So I wrote a song today, just the simple structure...

The verses are a vamp in A minor, it's kinda a mathy riff, and you wouldn't get the feel of it with just chords...

I'm looking to see what you think of the chorus.

It goes :
A minor, E minor, C, D minor
A minor, F minor, C, then there's this riff thing replacing the D minor...

each of the chords gets a measure in 6/8

No, sir, I implore you, read again
My joke was truly funny, my young young friend.
If you want me to stop rhyming, you must admit.

Almost really great, but not quite "prog" enough

A minor, E minor, C, D minor
A minor, F minor, C, then there's this riff thing replacing the D minor...

becomes....

A-minor/major 7
E dominant 7 (b9 #11)
C major 9
D minor 6
A minor 6/9
F# minor (borrowed parallel-minor chords are SO out of style)
16 note chromatic cluster starting on G3

That'll be $15,000 as soon as your song is an international hit

edit: aw shit I'm gonna have to jam on this later and see how it sounds
