I don't have the sheet music, so I am doing this by ear.

[AUDIOPLUS=https://vi-control.net/community/attachments/jp-mp3.20448/][/AUDIOPLUS]

Do I have the chords right? i am not sure about the A (2nd to last chord), but it would make sense form a "technical" standpoint, because that would make the A note above, a chordal tone. But something doesn't sound right to me. Is it maybe that there is some "weird" inversion?

Thanks! :)

Really close! It's not a "weird" inversion, but an inversion nonetheless (listen to the bass line!). Your 2nd chord is slightly off in the middle voices (this one is more of a weird chord). You may also want to practice playing triads in the left hand rather than just the root and 5th.

My guess,

The first chord is Bb, second is C, the last 3 are Gm, F, Eb - descending.

Edit: Actually a Dm sounds better instead of the F to me and feels better to play, no idea if it's right though. Playing different inversions also yields pleasing results :)

Thanks! Yes - this is what sounds best to me. I actually disagree with the Dm, though.

Try Bb C/Bb Gm Dm/F Eb
It's a descending Bass Line under those last three chords..
Thanks! So, you are thinking inversions, as was I. :)

If I strip it down a lot, this is what I get:

[AUDIOPLUS=https://vi-control.net/community/attachments/jp2-mp3.20452/][/AUDIOPLUS]

Bb, C, G, F, Eb

So, is this in a key, and if so, what key is it? Taking into account, of course, the inversions. Or is it a modulation?

So, i think we can say the key is BbMaj/Gmin

And the second chord... Bb/E/G - what is that?

well it's a C7, don't forget the melody too !. So you have a C in the melody and Bb,E and G in the Left hand. Flow's nicely to the Gmin. Dinosaurs like JAzz

Sure or a Em diminished Flat 6? :P
Yeah you can call it whatever you want but don’t discount the importance of the b flat in the bass in giving it its particular sonority/quality. If you want to think of it as a third inversion C7 chord than that’s cool.

I like to think that b flat Lydian is probably closer to JW’s line of thought since the melody “feels” Lydian.
