The Chord Guide: Pt I – Chord Progressions Chord progressions are the canvas on which musicians paint their masterpieces, and it’s a canvas which is a piece of art in itself. A chord progression can be subtle and in the background or it can be blatant and up front; it can be simple and catchy, or it can be technical and complex, it can stay in one key or it can change like the seasons. In any of these cases a chord progression is what drives the song as it literally shapes the music that accompanies it. Chord progressions are like a cozy home where melody and rhythm can kick their feet up. All the songwriting giants, like John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Bob Dylan, to name a few, have/had a tremendous knowledge of the art of the chord progression. I’m not going to promise you tremendous knowledge, but I will offer you a good head start in the way of making your own music – in an easily digestible chunk to boot.

FREE Online Rhyming Dictionary - StumbleUpon How To Create Electro... Lead? Bass? | How To Make Electronic Music - StumbleUpon To be honest, I’m not sure what this sound is specifically… Some may call it bass, some may say it’s more like a lead, but it’s definitely something you can hear in many Electro House tracks. I got the inspiration for this while listening some sample cd’s and after experimenting with FL Studio this is what I came up with: Is this something in a style of Mode Selektor, Daft Punk, etc? Anyway, if you’re interested to replicate the sound, here’s how you do it, step-by-step: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Check the audio: Next, let’s create some pitch slides. 8. 9. Check: 10. This is how it sounds so far: Next, let’s make it pumpp via sidechain compression! 11. 12. Allrighty. And here it is with a beat, mastered and everything: To experiment further, try different notes in the sequence. Have fun!

Chord Families This tutorial introduces the idea of Chord Families. To get the most out of this, you need to be comfortable with the theory behind chord construction. Make sure that you've read the following tutorials first... The basics of chord construction explained Building 7th chords in major keys Adding some new sounds to chord progressions using suspended chords ...and this should make a lot more sense. You may also find that the introduction to the major scale modes is useful background reading as well. I should point out that chord families go a lot further than we are going to cover here - this tutorial limits itself to the types of chords that have been covered in tutorials on this website to date. Let's start by looking at a scale (for the sake of simplicity, we'll stick to C major) harmonised in triads. We can extend these triads to 7th chords, by adding a 7th degree to each chord, thus: Alternatively, the 3rd degree could be swapped for a 2nd degree, whcih gives us suspended 2nd chords.

Poems & Quotes Songwriting Exercises - Handout Songwriting Exercises by Joel Mabus Scaffolding Stuck? Try this exercise: A) Take some song you like — any song at all from any era, any style — just so long as it is familiar to you. B) Write a new lyric to that song. C) Take that new lyric and write completely new music to it. D) Edit. (Or you could do A-C-B-D — write the new music to the “scaffold” song and then write a new lyric.) What remains is a new song with only a hint of the “ghost” song that acted as a scaffold for the process. Listmaking Out of ideas? A list could become a song (remember “My Favorite Things” or Tom T Hall’s “I Love...”) or could be a starting pad for an essay song, enumerating facts or feelings. Focused Imaging Similar to listmaking, but more purposeful, is putting your imagination to work in creating a scene, place or mood. Imagine a perfect day in your childhood – or the day your childhood sweetheart left you. Out-of-context Images Brain dead? Do this a few times and you start to see language in a new light. Journal

Harmonic Functions - Augmented Sixths We will start by transforming the iv degree chord of the A minor key into an augmented sixth chord. Below is the i - iv - V - i progression in A minor: now, we set the iv degree chord in first inversion: by raising the root of the iv degree chord a half-step (D# in this case) we get an augmented sixth chord: The chord receives the name of Augmented Sixth chord because of the augmented sixth interval between the bass and the chromatically raised note. By raising this note we increase the harmonic tension. Very often the Augmented Sixth chord is followed by the tonic chord in 2nd inversion before resolving to the dominant chord:
