Let me know if you have any suggestions. Right now, I have it sitting in the Plane shift article.

This is amazing. An excellent addition to plane shift lore. And pretty cool for musically inclined players and DMs! :)

Is there a more recent version of this table that includes newer planes such as the Feywild and the Shadowfell, for example?

If there is a newer version, I don't know if it. I myself was wondering how one might get to even the Plane of Shadow, to say nothing of the 4e or 5e planes. It is easy for a DM to fill in some missing notes or materials or fancy chords. Maybe adamantine B for Shadow and mithral B for the Feywild? I think I might have my players have to figure out that an augmented chord takes them to the fourth layer. :)
