Default Grab your Instrument..D to A...Listen!!!!

If you have an instrument in your home pick it up, tune it, and strum D......then when the note dies strum A.

Let me know what you find. [Please be in a relaxed state and let your mind wander.]

I'll tell you later. Better if you are someone who listens to hi-fi.

The A chord felt very consonant and relaxed compared to the D. It was quite a resolving sound.

OK, I did it. On guitar, flute, piano, and banjo. Now what?

But SY, what did you find?

I can't wait to find out what Reeler tells us later.

Meanwhile, I tried the chords the other way around, A then D, and it felt rather uplifting.

Or were we only supposed to play individual notes? To often I get these things wrong.

The post didn't specify instrument or whether to play a single note or chord, if a chord, then major or minor or 7th or whatever, or whether the A should be same octave or next octave...

In any case, here's what I found: D then A. It sounded very much like a IV interval!

Maybe I should fish my wife's trombone out of the closet and try the notes on that...

Oh, IV - THAT's what it is! I should have recognized it immediately with my protestant-denomination heritage.

The chords go like this, while the following word(s) are sung with all the chord notes:

IV - I
A - men

D - to - A

If I'm sleeping I will always waken up to this combination. I don't know why or how. If I am in a Restaurant or some other place, I seem to "startle" at the combination of D-A.

I was always someone who was catagorized as a person who can identify notes, perfect pitch sort of thing, but now I'm 51 and things with my hearing have changed. Strange that it might seem, I perk at the combination of these two notes played in sequence...

D followed by A My brain tells me to listen!

Just these two notes....anyone else have this?

I listen mostly to Jazz & Blues.
