Music theory nerd needed!

Hi,
i made a nice melody based out of 2 notes chords (assuming those were made in proper scale or key or whatever made by some other guy.
Since i dont play pianno and suck at music theory, i would need some help determining the 3rd note of the chords because i need to add some higher frequency to the mix.

The chords are:

D4-F5 -- F4-E5 -- A4-G5 -- G4-B5

Re: Music theory nerd needed!

Well, assuming you want to stay in C Major/ A minor, you could add an A or a B to the first chord, a C, A or B to the second chord, a C, D or E to the third chord, and a D, F, or E to the fourth chord. Honestly, it's best to dick around a bit and find what you like, these are just examples of what would fit well with what you've already got.

If adding a third note doesn't quite do it for you, try adding a fourth. Making the first 3 chords, 7th chords, would probably sound nice.

What is your melody line? F5-E5-G5-B5?

If you don't have any lower notes being played, then the lowest note of your chord will probably determine the root of the chord. The implied chords could be:
Dm - Fmaj7 - Am7 - G
For example:
D4-A4-F5
F4-A4-E5
A4-C5-G5
G4-D5-B5

In general, these chords should work well if your melody doesn't have any sharps/flats, because they all fit into the same key signature of C major (A minor)

If you have a different melody line than the one above, then ignore this, because it really depends on what melody line you've created.

Cheers
