For example, let’s say that you have a G. It could belong to the chords G, Gm, C, Cm Em, Dsus4, Eb, A7, Am7, and a bunch more.

Is there a online tool where I can find out all the chords for a certain note in this case a G note

You can play any note in any chord. For example, you can add the note G to any given chord. So, the answer is that it is virtually limitless.

You question is kind of like asking is there a list of words that contain the letter "e". Even if you could compile such a list, what are you going to do with it? What practical benefit would it have?

It's probably a better use of your guitar practice time to learn & practice how chords are formed, then work on playing each type of chord (major, minor, dominant 7, 9th, 11th, 13th, suspended, added, etc.).

I have many tutorials on chord theory if you need that material!

Hi there Sir,

from Utah

How are You doing?

Even if you could compile such a list, what are you going to do with it? What practical benefit would it have?

let use C note instead of G

Ok First I will start to arrange the notes in the Chord so that top melody is the C note by using inversion

Second I want use voice leading for each chord into the next chord as smooth as possible

but making sure that the C note is always the top note melody


in my daw Logic Pro X

1 track in a string patch playing just a C note drone

2 track I will be using a piano patch just playing all the chord that had C in them over track1


I found this I hope others can use it


Guitar Chord Finder - Enter note names in the box below (with a space between each note) and find out which chord they create:

put in C

Piano Chord Finder - Enter note names in the box below (with a space between each note) and find out which chord they create:

put in C

Voice leading is a wonderful tool! But if C is always the top note then your melody is going to be quite monotone.

Having the chords change under a stationary melody note is called oblique motion. And it can typically work for a measure or two, but after a while, the melody needs variation or to go somewhere. It needs a story arc!

A great example of this is Bach's Air on a G String. At the beginning of the main phrase the melody note stays stationary for 2 bars & into the 3rd! While the chords change underneath.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMkmQlfOJDk

But notice that the melody eventually does change to different notes to keep things moving along & interesting.

Another more frequently used oblique technique is to have the bass note remain stationary while the chords & melody above provide the motion & interest. Bach again in his Prelude in C Major is a great example.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frxT2qB1POQ

But even there the bass note doesn't always stay on just one note.

Anyway, voice leading is a great concept to understand & use. And oblique motion is one of the types of contrapuntal motions along with similar & contrary. It's a good idea for a composer to be familiar with all these concepts & techniques!

That sounds like an interesting experiment to discover how oblique motion works, how chords can have common tones. But eventually I'm assuming you want to make a piece of music, right?

With that in mind you might enjoy my series of tutorials on music theory.

https://www.guitartricks.com/collection/music-theory

This lesson in particular mentions voice leading.

https://www.guitartricks.com/lesson.php?input=11531&s_id=495

And this lesson explicitly focuses on oblique motion in the context of harmony lines.
