I'm not yet able to perform "Harmonic Analysis" as of yet if you could elaborate please.
You could view the V IV I as a "downward leading cadence from V to I" but if the progression is otherwise functional then I'm pretty sure it is still a deceptive cadence even if it eventually resolves to the I chord.
(The reason being that the functional harmony sets up a heightened tension on the V chord that is best resolved (and is traditionally expected to resolve to the I) which then moves to a difference chord thwarting that traditional expectation thus the listener's expectations are deceived.)
For me the term "interrupted" cadence feels more appropriate even though I think traditionally the terms interrupted and deceptive may actually be interchangeable.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong on any of this.
Wait a minute...thinking about it some more maybe a V-IV-I isn't an interrupted or deceptive cadence. In that case wouldn't IV-I technically be the cadence. Is the V still part of the cadence if it's not the final resolution to close the phrase or section of music??
My head hurts. I'm going back to sleep.
He was specifically referencing some type of harmonic progression in the middle of the phrase as opposed to the end, so it's not a cadence as we know it. "Defective" for all intents and purposes, I suppose.
The "Oceans" song I linked has progression:
G / / / | D / / / | A / / / | / / / / :||(x3)
G / / / | / / A / | Bm / / / | ....
The prolongation of the A as opposed to the G or the D puts it more as a half-cadence that wants to resolve to the tonic, but doesn't 1) until two measures later and 2) for an extended amount of time to be the focus of the section. It's an exceptionally weak V-IV-I if you really want to interpret it that way (as a roundabout V-I), but I'd rather interpret it as IV-V (x3) IV-V-vi, because the D major section really has little harmonic weight.
When reading guitar tablature books, what does "Composite Arrangement" mean? For example, "Gtr. I and Gtr. II, Composite Arrangement" -- does it mean that both guitars one and two play the same notes on the same track? Or does it mean that one is played on the left channel, and one on the right channel? Thanks for the help!
You don't need the roman numerals, because your music only occurs in G major.
When you guys can write songs that aren't about drinking beer while wearing jeans in a truck parked by the riverbed in the moonlight on the weekend, gimme a call.
Take C major for example. If you want to get that C major (Ionian sound) you will have to work the harmony and or melody so that the Root feels like C.
If you want to spice up the C major you'll switch the Root note to,say for example the third scale degree E,make heavy use of the new characteristics you know have between the 1st-2nd and 5th-6th scale degrees to bring out that Phrygian sound. Otherwise you'll still be noodling in C major like a knob.
Am I correct in this?...
Personally I prefer V/V chords...
Hi guys and gals. Just after a bit of direction. I have been playing guitar on and off for the last 15 years. Just lately I have this desire to get back into it full time, and learn everything I can. I have taught myself over the years from tab and a bit by ear, and as a result am lacking a lot of the fundamental skills and also don't have a great grip on the theory side. Going to a teacher is not an option where I live and I honestly cant afford it. Can anyone suggest any book series or internet sites that I cant start at the basics and work my way through to be an advanced player that can not only just play but also understand what I am playing. My long term goal would actually to be able to pass this information onto others through lessons. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all,
My aim is to be well rounded, maybe even learn some theory so I can play in key and such. Truthfully I always thought it would be cool to be in a band. maybe even sing/play in the band. Not to toot my own horn but I really feel I have the charisma to do so. I'm just lacking some confidence and skill...With time right?
Context isn't dictated by the guitar, it's by the whole ensemble
True, but you're not supposed to compete with other musicians. It doesn't matter if the guitar is played by a lot of people. Just focus on making great music and you can gain a fanbase. All people care about is good music
I have arrived in a point in live where I have to decide what my job will be in the future. I'm dreaming about becoming a professional musician and do this for a living. It's a dream I pursue since I'm a little kid. I really want to do that for a living. I know it's a very insecure career. But hey I like adventures.
I have the opportunity to do whatever I want when it comes to education right know and I am thinking about studying my instrument at collage. There are a few promising possibilities in my are but I'm also open to move to the US in case I want to study there. You don't have to tell me that I need a certain skill level to study it. In my opinion and the opinion of a teacher at one of my local music collages I could start. I still have a year of school until I'm finished.
Probably there is someone here to give me some advice when it comes to a career in music. Any professional musicians who could tell me what they have done with their lives? How did you manage to become a professional musician? What about Berklee?
I'd be really glad if somebody would answer.
Ya, but chord construction specifically on the guitar, for guitarists. It's one thing to know that if you add a major 7th to a major chord, you get the major7th chord, and its another thing to be able to play a given major chord anywhere on the neck, and know how to convert all of those into a maj7 chord.
So what exactly should he do for money for the next five or so years until he has enough skill to make money doing something that he is essentially just restarting from scratch?
Hendrix would do 1/2 tone flat. He's was one of the best. Sound is what matters.
Hi there I've been playing guitar for around 4 years but in the past couple of years I've lost motivation to play and progress as a player so I don't feel as excited when I pick up the guitar. I've tried getting a new guitar as a bit of motivation but that soon fades
Can anybody recommend some ways for me to get back into playing and feel excited about playing again?
That why people always face the other direction when they see people talking about music theory :/
You can look at BB king. He's playing from his hearth. He know little about music theory. I just want to have a great feeling like him.
