I used to create lead sheets (chords and solos, melody) for several Bands (4,5 people) and now I create lead sheets to register/deposit my songs at Buma/Stemra (Netherlands copyright).
I use a custom chord symbol to identify a (half) quartal chord. (‘quartal chord’ = C-F-Bb-Eb and ‘half quartal chord’ = C-F-Bb)
for a ‘half quartal chord’ I use a ‘slashed square’ graphic or I write down a strikethrough ‘qrt’
and for a ‘quartal chord’ I use a ‘square’ graphic or I just write ‘qrt’.
the half quartal chord I use most of the time when i write down polychords
e.g. Dm7/E half quartal
I have 1 questions;
- When I create a custom chord and set it to be a global chord for the project, it doesn’t change for poly chord, I have to each time adjust the polychord and that can be alot of times within the lead sheet.
How do I set the custom chord so that it also shows on poly chords?
