I have to do a composition for my music A level, and decided to go for something fun and interresting which is why i chose Ska. i want to do it in reel big fish/less than jake style of ska.

I listen to alot of that kind of ska but have never written any. Cant play it though.

I just wondered if you have any tips for me, as in chord sequences. Types of chords, song structures etc...... Cheers xxx
Most people die with their music still locked up inside them.

-5----------and then play the A like this--5--or--x---or in minor chords-5--or--x
-6-----------------------------------------------6-------6--------------------------5-------5
-7-----------------------------------------------7-------7--------------------------7-------7
-7--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-5--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

well first of all this isn't the place to ask for help- you should go to the questions thread.

I think this explains it and be sure to read the entire faq/rules thread too

This is not the place to ask for help on how to write lyrics; we have a large ?Lyrics Tips? thread for that. No ?Do you write lyrics or music first?? threads, no ?Who is your favorite lyricist?? threads, no ?Help me put music to this? threads. This is not the place. Those threads will immediately be closed. If you?re unsure as to where to put a thread, please PM a mod of this forum (like myself) and we?ll be happy to help.


and sorry i dont know anything about ska so i can't really help you while i'm at it
