After years of careful consideration I have decided that the 1970s can be expressed by a single chord.

"The Mu Major …"

The Mu Major is a 'slash chord' where the bass notes are 'displaced': raised by a tone with the 2nd (or 9th) degrees of the major scale replacing the conventional role of the tonic (or root notes).

In pop music this chord came to prominence in the late 60's and was used to great effect by The Beatles, for example, in "The Long and Winding Road". It then became the staple of keyboard voicings far in to the 80's, until it was superseded by standard sus chords in the 90's.

Top selling Artists of the time that made frequent use of this chord include: Elton John; The Rolling Stones; Pink Floyd; Abba; Led Zeppelin; Bee Gees; Wings; David Bowie; Bob Dylan; Rod Stewart; The Beatles; Deep Purple; Santana; Eagles; Neil Diamond; Neil Young; John Lennon; Cat Stevens; Queen; Chicago; The Who; Donna Summer; Jethro Tull; Stevie Wonder; James Last; Fleetwood Mac; The Carpenters; Creedence Clearwater Revival; Boney M; Simon & Garfunkel; Electric Light Orchestra; George Harrison; John Denver; Bob Marley; Earth, Wind & Fire; Yes; Black Sabbath; Slade; Billy Joel; Alice Cooper; Carole King; Supertramp; Genesis; Barry White; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; The Sweet; Joni Mitchell; Eric Clapton; Paul Simon; Steely Dan; The Jam; Toto; Sex Pistols; the Clash; Kraftwerk … and many more!
