Essentially, I am simply alternating between two chords: E minor, functioning as a (i) tonic chord, and D-sharp diminished, functioning as a (vii dim) leading tone diminished chord. The diminished chords can also be viewed as (v) chords, dominant chords, if you look at them with the note B in mind as the root. Then they are B7flat9 chords. In order to give the progression some motion, I use inversions of the diminished chord each time I play it. Tonic, Dominant, Tonic, Dominant inversion, Tonic, Dominant inversion.
Finally at the end, after a good deal of tension has been built, I play a larger arpeggio F# major, functioning as the secondary dominant (V of V) chord that moves to the B major chord, functioning as the final dominant (V).
That's a lot of sweeping! Be careful and go slow at first until you can get it up to speed.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
