update: figured out these songs tonight–they are remarkably simple, chord structure-wise. just goes to show that that is not what’s important! (aside: I notice messed up things in the English language now that I’ve compared it favorably to Bosnian on a few occations–so “…is not what is…”?? good knight. someone tell me there is a better way.)
For nonmusical types: there are numbered chords in each key, 6 I think, you can throw other chords in there for good measure if you want, but basically you work around those six a vast majority of the time. SO, the two Dove’s songs are both in the same key (commmon–most of my songs are too, in fact, G–1/2 step higher than these, if memory serves), and their chord structures are as follows:
Caught is 5-4-1-5.
Pounding is 1-5-4-1 and 4-5-6-4.
up: i am slowly coming to, thank god.
