well yeah and no, hehehe... the way you play these chords are probly completely different from how i play em (wish i could hear your play)
here's how i play(ed) it (poor quality MP3 recorder, but it does the job ): sample.mp3
i do understand now why you tread my F# as a D tho (Dmaj7/F#), coz D G A (B) as I IV V VI makes sense
the second part i see as C D Em (IV V vi of G)... probly coz im not very good with dim chords (yet) so i tried to avoid the C#dim and rather used a C
The new section you posted I, honestly had a hard time defining. These voicings seem very open and don't dictate a specific function. Having said that, I hear very little difference between the 4th chord of your first section and the 1st chord of your second section. - that means I want to put them both in the G major camp.
hmmm, so maybe thats why i ended up with a C after the B, coz the B kinda leads the D major progression to the G major progression of the 2nd part
From what I know, (somewhat limited) I would encourage you to avoid names like "sus#4" and "D349". The last example, in particular is used to define specific inversions of a chord, (letter name, followed by intervals) and this could be confusing to someone reading a chart.
i just made up these names, just coz im a bit, errr wuts that word again, recalcitrant ... i kinda like to do things my way ;D
tnx for your feedback
edit: its rather easy to record stuff with your PC, just buy a small PC mic (or headset), plug it into your soundcard/mobo, get cooledit (send me PM ) and start recording
