Heeeey! I know I have not posted in a good while...I'm still here and practicing as much as possible though.

After two months stuck on level 4 - far behind my other two nasic games - I levellled up twice on Chordelius! - so proud!

here's a tip: Augmented and Dimished usually have a metallic quality to them, but Augmented more so than Diminished =)

Congratulations! Keep it up, and you'll just keep on getting better!

Those two chords in particular are pretty hard. I'm still getting confused by them from time to time myself, even though I'm at level 114! Another tip I can give you is that Diminished chords want to resolve, while Augmented chords are just kinda out there.

Good luck!

I think of diminished this way: It sounds like it *wants* to resolve. It's just a dominant 7 chord without the root. For me, I have a hard time defining Aug triads other than "Doesn't sound like any of the others"

Whenever I hear an augmented chord, I immediately imagine that Chuck Berry's about to come in singing "Riding along in my automobile". Check out that song (the very beginning chords to be specific) if anyone's having trouble identifying augmented chords. Actually, I think it's an augmented 7th, but it has the same basic sound.

Way to go @Teresa Brito . That's just fantastic. Keep it up. I find that I can get stuck on some games and do well with others, but that changes all the time.
