If you have felt stuck in your ability to write tunes, this composition class will show you an entirely new way to address this process. No more waiting for that “magical moment” when composition appears. These techniques are proven to work when you need them to work! If your writing needs a jump start and you are searching for a fresh approach to composition, this class is for you!
The main point of this Master Class: Compose a series of chords that sound great from one to the next. With this chord progression established, all other aspects (tune structure, style, melody, intros and outros) will fall into place. These techniques demonstrate that through the use of a small parameter (that each chord must contain a particular note), chord progressions become easy to generate! This small parameter doesn’t dictate the compositional process. It simply enables you to have a sense of direction. Without this parameter, the chord progressions (that you develop with these techniques) would forever remain hidden.
The tunes played in this video are meant only to demonstrate the techniques involved. The important thing to “get” from these tunes is the process that brought about these tunes!
In this Master Class:
•Alphabetic Junction – “Orange To Grey” (Ballad)
•Single Tone In Variation – “Infinite Staircase” (3/4 Med. Up)
•Multiple Tone In Variation – “Durana” (Samba)
•Single Chord In Variation – “Springs” (Med. Swing)
