Electronic Music Theory: How to Quickly Write Better Chord Progressions w/ Pat Cupo
A lot of students have asked me for tips and tricks to writing better chord progressions. By that time they had already learned about building Major and Minor chords, but when it came to a chord progression – a series of chords occurring in time – they were a bit stuck. If you’re ever in the same position, then feel free to use these simple guidelines to help you quickly write chord progressions. Follow them carefully and strictly at first and over time it’ll start to come naturally to you. 1) Use only Major or Minor chords. Just keep things simple. C Major [audio: Major Chord C Minor [audio: Minor Chord 2) Begin and end with the same chord The thing about music is that it’s like a game.

ntainer living: a home for under £50,000 “We’ve got a main room, which is about five metres by seven, and an area for the kitchen-and-shower room, which is about two metres by two. It’s a bit of a squeeze sometimes, when we’re all here. We’ve got two cats. But, like the Tardis, it’s actually a lot bigger inside than it looks from the outside. “We also find that, because we haven’t got a lot of space, we do have to keep it tidy. But that’s not such a bad thing. Among Becky and Chris’s neighbours is journalist and broadcaster Caroline Barker. “We used to have horrible offices in Harrow, west London” she recalls. It’s not just living and working space at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The park is the brainchild of Eric Reynolds, the founder of Urban Space Management. This means costs must be kept down. “We buy the containers in China. Given that most containers measure 40-45 sq m, this means you’ve got a ready-made apartment for around £38,000 and £47,000. “It’s perfect. “So far, container living hasn’t quite fulfilled its potential.

Racist Hunger Games Fans Are Very Disappointed To play devil's advocate here, all the book said was that Rue had dark skin. Which leaves the field wide open. She could be NA, Indian, Asiatic, Black, Latino, or about a dozen other races and sub-races. Heck, dark skin and dark hair could even make her a tanned Italian, not a far cry considering how many of the districts labor outdoors. Each person saw Rue differently, and the description was deliberately vague. The girl onscreen could not POSSIBLY have lived up to every single expectation. The other thing that nitpickers like the author of this article tend to forget is that we populate book universes with what is most familiar. It's not just her, I've received similar feedback from several people over my lifetime, and read about the phenomena elsewhere. And then, of course, there's the stereotyping. I know a lot about the art of writing, so I could pinpoint WHY I was left feeling...less than involved. Does this mean racism isn't going on?

Ostalgie parisienne: bienvenue à Vintage Park Les chercheurs Michel Pinçon et Monique Pinçon-Charlot qui, avant de s’attaquer au «président des riches», ont longtemps arpenté la capitale, notaient à propos du XIe arrondissement de Paris: «Le promeneur comprend que ce quartier vit à l’heure de l’émotion nostalgique se nourrissant des souvenirs surgissant d’un passé lointain… On se trouve d’emblée dans une mise en scène du passé populaire du quartier.» publicité Ménilmuche, la Popinque, Charonne, autant de villages et quartiers dont les noms sonnent popu en diable et dont le décor tranche avec le monumentalisme du Paris – Ville Lumière des brochures touristiques! «Le Mécano Bar, au n°99, est un exemple de la décoration des établissements du quartier.
