I'm trying to write chord progressions that use all chords from major and another parallel mode (once and only once). This one is for major and Lydian, and I can't figure out an ending that I like. Does someone else want to give it a shot?
Strictly following the rules, only the major chords are left (or the equivalent Lydian I, iii, V and vi). Ideally it should resolve back to A at the end so it can start again. I know this is a random challenge, but if someone wants to try it I'd love to see what you come up with. in the meantime I'll keep working on it.
Also, I started it in 7/4 time signature, which maybe was a bad idea. Feel free to change anything about it.
EDIT: Finally came up with something http://www.hooktheory.com/hookpad/view/CFFogQBHvOfS
I like it! The part in the middle of the progression sounds like it's in the key of E, than the D en E(7) cadence leads you back to the Amajor key. The suspended chords sound very good too, this could be in a song or something It sounds very "normal", except the iisus4-ii. I expected to hear IIsus4-II. But it's great to "modulate" back to A. great job!
Thanks so much! The ii chord was where I got stuck - I really wanted to use the major II there, but I had already used it earlier. I eventually decided that easing into the minor ii with sus4 sounded decent enough to work. The hardest part about these is finding a chain of cadences so the whole thing does sound "normal". Here are the others I've done.
