A corpus analysis of rock harmony
[PDF] - The analyses were encoded using a recursive notation, similar to a context-free grammar, allowing repeating sections to be encoded succinctly. The aggregate data was then subjected to a variety of statistical analyses. We examined the frequency of different chords
and chord transitions ... Other results concern the frequency of different root motions, patterns of
co-occurrence between chords, and changes in harmonic practice across time.

I had this concept--after a strange dream, while scoping out the I Dreamed I Saw st. Augustine
tab in my just-in-case-it-disappears downloaded dylanchords
, of ...St. Augustine
as a slow moody slide in Open D ala Blind Texas Marlin. But then I got to wondering whether someone might have a chord dictionary online where a few variations on a first position B Minor
in Open D might be found. Voila! Achtung, Baby! Behold Brian's huge chordlist collection
. Oh, man, he's got your standard and open tunings on guitar plus mandolin, uke, banjos, bouzouki, pipa and lute. A living room guitarist's must have, no doubt, although a few more open tunings for pipa would have been nice... [more inside]

If you can stomach (and run) Windows Media Player and are a musician*, perhaps you might find the Muse On Visualizer
somewhat interesting. It attempts to extract chord names from the music stream and display them realtime. Then again, maybe you are looking to experiment with chords and music theory
or else figure out what you've been
* Yes, I realize +1 of you probably have problems with one or the other of these. Deal. Also, MuseOn is more fun-toy than genius-spot-on-makes-TABs-for-you.

Metallica sues over use of E, F chords.
No, it's not an Onion article. Really. They're completely serious. No exaggerating is taking place here. Honestly, they really are suing another band for using the E and F chords. It's on their website
, for god's sake. All I know is, I'm getting drunk tonight.
