I discovered a couple days ago that there's a chord called the Tristan chord. this fills me with a load of glee since my name is Tristan. evidently it is named after the opening chord to Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde, which I was partly named after (partly, in that it is my father's favorite opera, and my parents were big fans of the British comedy TV show All Creatures Great and Small).
it's made up of an F, B, D# and G#. i need to use this chord more often...here's
a lengthy explaination of it.
