A.N.Other chord question
« on: June 26, 2014, 12:27:03 PM »
hi all
  I am having trouble trying to play an F6 chord inversion   F.A.C.D gives me F6 no problem but need to play it A.C.D.F but it comes up as Dm7...???

That's the way the keyboard works. Because a 6th chord and a m7 chord use exactly the same notes, engineers had to pick a way to distinguish between the two. They chose that if the chord is in the root position, it's a 6th, otherwise, it's  m7.

BTW, all inversions trigger the same rhythm pattern. Why do you "need to play" ACDF?

Hi thanks thought  it might be something  like that .... the reason is the chord sequence is ...Gm7....C7...F...F6...Gm7.....

I hear you. It's annoying to have to move to an unfamiliar inversion in the middle of a neat sequence, but that's life.

You could experiment with a different Fingering type, like Full Keyboard, or AI Full Keyboard to see if what you're playing in the right hand helps the keyboard figure out the chord.

Hi thanks ,yes I thought I had the sequence of pat  Gm7- C7  there is a C7sus4 in there as well all worked out well until the dreaded F6 came in ..I have reworked the  fingering to play the F6 in the root position the Dm7 is way way off key

  Thank again
