haha, that was funny Tntaylor!
Hey when you hear something that sounds like a mix of chords, always go and check out the “relative minor of your major” and check it out as it typically sounds a lot like a mixture of chords.
Remember your theory we discussed?.. is part of it. In G major as the Key your relative minor = Emin, In D the relative minor = Bmin, and in F it is Dmin, C is Amin.
Those relative minors to me can be explained as “twins” but not identical twins. A lot of songs may switch in the “relative minor” sometimes and if you do not play music (audience) they might not even notice to their ear that there is a different chord being played.
And back on the relative minor - it is always the “6th” of your major.
You were confusing the G with the Bb (b flat) and the D with the Dminor.
I will Pm ya my address so you can send me a check!
