Tension and Resolution

My take on what it takes to make great music.... It's about Tension and Resolution.

OK what I mean is...

All great music creates tension and resolution to get and maintain the listener's attention and interest. The T & R is created harmonically, rhythmically, and dynamically.

Once you understand what's really going on behind the notes, you can create great music without knowing any more "technique"... You just have to get it.

Hard to explain in words. That's why I created a video.

This is pretty common. It depends on what you want to consider 'great' music however. A lack of resolution throughout a piece adds a nice spice. Doing it constantly makes it seem boring and lacking innovation.

Why make two threads, though- was the first there to build the tension?

One person's spice is another person's poison.

Without a song creating both tension and resolution throughout the song... it would be pretty boring to me... but I'm old.

Of course, when you are young you are trolling for spice. But as you get older that spice gets hard to digest.

If you have the tone of the gods, it wont matter without technique. Stop playing with your knobs and practice. Taste comes down to the individual.

So you're telling me, that tension and resolution, the most fundamental aspect that has tied together virtually all of the planet's music since the beginning of time, is important?
