What to resolve to?

Post by spearlymatt on Wed Aug 19, 2009 11:40 am

Before I get to the question, it's probably best to show the progression. It's in 3/4.

|C--|G7--|Dm--|B°m7--|

Now, that sounds fine when it's paired with lyrics, but when it's not it sounds like it never resolves. Originally I wanted to go...

|C--|G7--|Dm--|B°m7--|
|C--|G7--|Em--|Em--|

That sounds OK when instrumental, but terrible with the lyrics. So then I thought...

|C--|G7--|Dm--|B°m7--|
|C--|G7--|Dm--|G F -|

That's better, but still not perfect, any ideas of what to resolve to?

Solution found.

|C--|G7--|Dm--|B°m7--|
|C--|Dm--|G7--|C--|

I just put the ii after the tonic, thus leading me to the dominant V, then leading me back to the tonic.

Implementing logic isn't making it my own?
