Piano Chord Tips and Songwriting

Posted by Ms.Tris On April - 11 - 2011

Great morning to you! I am feeling super 🙂 Went to StreetLegal Studios last night for an epic session. Six emcees on a fire track I produced. I will surely keep you posted on this one!! …

I’m onto music theory lessons this morning. I have been working on a few pop type tracks for an artist. I am still having a little trouble doing the melodies before chords. So far it’s been easier for me to work, using chords 1st. Sometimes I have an idea in my head and need to lay it down before anything else. I know the only way to really get this down is to learn more music theory.

I found the perfect site that covers songwriting, theory, and song structure: The site theme is “The Essential Secrets of Songwriting”. I’ve read three articles that cleared up some of the chord and theory questions I’ve had for a while. It’s honestly one of the most complete music blogs I’ve read. I’m checking out another article now about What Is The Circle Of Fifths. Not only does author,Gary Ewer, explain theory in an easy manner, he also gives a few chord suggestions to help you understand his post clearly.

Like myself, I know that many of my readers use piano, keyboards, and or keyboard midi controllers. I am sure you will find tons of valuable info atGary Ewer’s blog. Since many aspects of music theory and songwriting are covered; writers, guitarist, and players of other instruments will benefit from the site also. “The Essential Secrets Of Songwriting”

Happy Theory Learning To All!
Pz Til Later!~
