Hi there UG. I'm in need of your assistance.

A friend of mine is moving to Australia, and i don't have the money to buy her anything. So instead, i have decided to write a small album for her, of about 4/5 tracks. This is where you guys come in.

I need some help with little chord progressions or cool sounding little doodles that you can give me.

Any help would be very appreciated.



Eli


EDIT: You can hear the first track of the album "Daybreak" on my UG Profile

If I was to go through the trouble of making a nice chord progression, the last thing I would do is give it away for free.

I'm not asking for much here

I just want something i can play with and mess around with. If I'm going to make an album for a close friend of mine, i might as well put some effort into it right?

Awwwh, bless! A great idea...but maybe you should save your CD for somebody that'll give you sex in return for it? I.E: Your girlfriend.

She'd be a lot more "appreciative" if you know what i mean

But I'm not a sex addict and i don't think i should use music to get girls in that way.

And i am already thinking about writing one for my Girlfriend anyway.

Make sure to include lots of Fsharps!

some chords you can mess around with that arent hard are, G maj, E min, D maj, Cmaj, Cadd9. i think F maj might work aswell, but if its in the key of G (which has F#) the F maj chord has an F natural...

but yeah, these are kinda basic chords, but can sound pretty cool.
hope its helped

EDIT: F maj works with those chords, apart from Cadd9. It works with D maj also, even though F maj has f natural and D maj has F#. You could also you Dmin as that has an f natural.

Is there no hope for me whatsoever?

UG is full of musicians, you'd think at least one would know a cool sounding acoustic riff, or doodle or chord progression.


You seem to forget that 90% of musicians are assholes.

not asking for much? your basically asking us to do it for you

your right when you say you might as well put some effort into it

you put some effort in and not ask the pit

i'm surprised youve not been told to use the rape chord by now

Remember you can't use E>F.

Metallica have that one patented.

Really?

It's a joke, some canadian band claimed Metallica sued them for using E>F but it was just a publicity stunt, one that didn't go too well because I don't remember the band name.

Ah okay, If they had patent on that one it would have been funny.

Well I'm pretty much a beginner when it comes to this stuff, but from experience I know just messing around for a while is when the best riffs come to you. =P
Also, might I ask which part of Australia might she be moving to?

I'll find out for you.

And to the guy who said that I'm asking the pit to do it for me. I realized this as soon as i posted it . But the thing is, i know I'm not really that good, so what's the problem with getting some creative advice from those across the world?

And to the guy who gave me a list of chords. I present to you one E-Cookie

Sorry- you no longer exist and therefore I cannot speak to you- what you have stated is an impossible occurance in the Pit...like dividing by zero.

Em & C# sound really good together. Makes a really sad sounding tune, or better yet, play the strings by themselves to make it even more of a tearjerker.
