Probably the best comment I've even heard on any of my songs

Now I know what to do with life, I just make a ton of these and sell them on

I was wondering what was missing until I saw that the drums' volume was 0 (atleast when I opened it, it was). Sounds good, yo.

I was expecting some jazz (which is what I consider elevator music), and instead I get some great ambient, almost VGM type of atmosphere. Thumbs up!

I put a repeat for four time around bars 2-13 and it really works, IMO. My only complaint is that the bits where the drums cut out are a bit awkward, except for 12 and 13, that works.

This is really good, though. I was very pleasantly surprised, the title of the thread is a bit misleading.

Thanks guys.

1. The drums are on 0 as they fade in

2. Thanks. Your right, its not entirely jazz. Ive always considered elevator music, to be, while quite often jazz, rather absent music, which is what I can sort of see in this. Its rather lifeless. Ill definately review the drum parts, I've never been very good with them anyway

3. Me neither But yeah, the keyboard bit, that was more of an experiment than anything, trying to get it to fade in and pan across.

Im surprised noones brought up the tuning

DAEFCD

Any idea what that is ?

Let's see... DAEFCD... that could be any number of things. It looks like the two simplest answer would be open Dm7maj9 (not an expert on extended chord names, can someone tell me if that's accurate?). However, a search on bing prompted only 6 results, all of some song someone wrote in that tuning.

EDIT: Not this one, hah. Someone else's.

It's just D minor 9, or Dm9.

You actually use that search engine? Something wrong with Google?
I can only listen to so many breakdowns and "spoken word" vocals before I wanna puke.

I find Jennette McCurdy attractive, but Elizabeth Gillies and Debby Ryan much more so.

That's enough, Djent people. We get it.

Well the 9 is major, which is why I was confused. I see 'Dm9' and think of a minor 9th interval, but maybe that's incorrect. Like I said, not an expert on extended chords past 7ths.


There's no such thing as a major 9 interval. You can have a flat 9 or a sharp 9, but not a major or minor 9. It's just technicalities, though, it all just means a half step above or a half step below.

The reason it's just 9 is because it's diatonic. You can look at extended chords like a stack of triads. Take this one for example:

D F A C E

You can split that into a D minor triad, D F A, and an A minor triad, A C E, stacked on top of one another. That's a good thing to know during soloing and the like, because you can play A ininor or just something in aeolian mode over the II chord for an interesting effect.

Same goes with 7 chords. Look at F major 7:

F A C E

You have F A C, which is F major, on top of A C E, which is A minor. These chords are all just an interplay between notes of the scale you can break up into these small constituent "flavors". It's a really interesting theoretical concept to think about, and it has definitely helped me to understand this stuff in a more broad sense. It's all interconnected.

7ths, I never had a problem with. My study of theory never got past them, though, so that's where my confusion stems from.

I used to be anti-Google, because according to my brother (who just graduated with a computer science degree, and writes codes and websites and shit for a living), Chrome, and the search engine tracks your searches and history and whatnot so they can target ads. I don't mind the targeted ads, but having my shit watched over by anyone used to scare the piss out of me. However, now, it's largely just out of habit. Finds what I'm looking for just as much as Google ever did for me.

Anyway, we all should stop spamming ultrasonic's thread, and resume any of these convos in private messages.
