Started over at Stickist, I thought it'd be cool to discuss over here; Here's my Stick approach to it -

I superimposed a "one scale fits all" thing over it, F Major - I know, weird right? But think of it this way, since I played all major triads (no 7th) they can imply being a dominant7th chord, OR a Maj7th of some sort - since the bass side is not supplying the 7th, the pool of notes I am playing over it "fills" that in, leaving the listener's ears to hear if it's any good... And obviously you might not rip every note of the scale over each chord either, so it is what it is... Here is a brief intervallic breakdown of what I did...

So Fmajor = FGABbCDE

Over D Major (DF#A) FGABbCDE equals #9-11-5-b13-b7-R-9 intervallic-ly speaking it's a cool pool of altered notes... Altered Dominant 7 here...

Over Ab Major (AbCEb) FGABbCDE equals 13-maj7-b9-9-maj3-#11-#5 Lots of sonic "flavour" so to speak... A heavily altered maj7 or again, altered Dom7

Over Bb Major (BbDF) FGABbCDE equals 5-13-maj7-R-9-maj3-#11- Major 7th, as F Lydian as it gets...

Over C Major (AbCEb) FGABbCDE equals 11-5-13-b7-R-9-maj3 - Dominant 7th, definitely C Mixolydian for this chord...

Anyways thanks for the cool discussion - Just another of many different approaches available...

While in written form, it looked like Greek to me - the sound when played was absolutely beautiful.

I completely admire how you can do two intricately different things at the same time.

Bravo !!

Big G! - thanks for checking it out, and I appreciate the kind words! It took me a long time to develop that type of playing ability and sadly I have much further to go yet to be where I want to be! And yes, "talking" music theory stuff can get pretty cerebral in a quick hurry, I find it's easiest to "listen" to it as well, once the idea has been discussed a bit. I am a bit disappointed that nobody else really dug into the chord progression much; I think that kind of "community" type exploration is really good for the instrument.
