^That restricts you to scale patterns though. Or scales anyway.
This concept of scales is why guitarists get stuck playing the same patterns over and over
I think minor Seconds and Tritones are a large part of it. They really epitomize the dissonance elements. Take a standard thing that sounds good, and vary that good note by shifting it a half step away in either direction. These are all hallmark "moves" of this genre.
no, you should just learn the 12 major scales. They are the basis of literally every other scale.
It's like asking what words you should learn how to spell, when you should just learn the alphabet.
The chances to make a unique chord progression that sounds good is much less than making a unique melody. In tonal music, chords usually only go to a few places while in a melody your possibilities are nearly infinite. There are thousands of songs that go I - IV - V for example, but you see the same melodies way less frequently.
I'm bored of writing my own music so I was wondering if you could help me. I've been listening to stuff like this
and I know it's made up of Brian Eno samples but I can't find anything cool to use so i was hoping maybe you guys would have some ideas about who's music to steal? Also, making up drumbeats just seems really long winded and pointless when there's loads of loops around - do any of you know where i could get some?
(b) also yeah. barre chords are handy for getting a lot of chords for mimimal effort
that doesn't mean you can't memorise the most usual chord shapes, too- even people who understand the theory probably know how to play an open G major chord or whatever, they aren't (well, I'm not ) working it out from first principles or anything like that.
how do you memorize chord notes? a minor is a c e but the notes that you play appear a e a c e open a minor
I think you should memorize at least the basic shapes
I still don't understand why you couldn't ask about songwriting/part writing. It's the same as if you said people shouldn't go to guitar lessons and you should learn guitar on your own. The thing is, you learn from other people. And it helps if somebody explains to you what's happening. Songwriting is also a skill.
If somebody tells you how people usually write rhythm guitar parts, why does it matter? I mean, you would get the same results by analyzing many songs by yourself. Now there's somebody to tell you about it. It's the same as learning to play. Yes, you could figure it all out by yourself but it helps if there's somebody correcting your technique (if you are doing something wrong). You would figure out that what you were doing was not good technique on your own a bit later ut if somebody tells you about it now, you'll realize it now and don't need to waste your time. I'm not saying that listening to music is wasting your time of course. But I don't understand why you couldn't ask about songwriting. It is a skill that you learn. Everything can be taught.
Which are just samples. So he might as well just do it himself of the one he likes
You got a sound you like with minimal effort! OH NOESSSSSSSSSS
Except you because you suck
u r literally so dumb
Someone could spend hours trying to achieve a sound using a VST but the sound you want was recorded on some specific record made in '58. I don't see anything wrong with using someone else’s sound to create something new and unheard. .
The sound is nothing more than another instrument when isolated. The sound this piano makes isn't what I'm looking for, and I don't have a recording studio with a grand piano in it, so I'm gonna use this sample of Dave Brubeck hitting this G# instead yo, strech that bitch out, reverse it a lil, perfect
that is my counter argument. i don't see the distinction in what you're saying. it's made up
You don't learn any more from covering other people's music than you would just listening to it. .
He is writing something new based on the sound of something else. It's the sound that matters, not the underlying harmony.
He needs to figure out what HE can come up with, using the knowledge he has acquired
sample a different tune lol
eno has loads to choose from
when i can't be bothered to think of chords i just sample
Will sampling 50ms of a specific sound is not someone else's idea. The sound in it's original context was a completely different idea in itself
no i didn't mate i kept it in my wet sponge and drained it out x amount of time after i wiped it up off my counter so it's not stealing
Explain to me how legitimate and illegitimate music are experienced differently
you're philosophising about something that doesn't actually matter at all
i am sad that all the music i've made is illegitimate
this is a big deal because music is all about how it's made
when i can't be bothered to think of chords i just sample like 50ms of a tune at a time and loop it
would you say i am a crook?
no it is stealing, munky proved it
but it's only stealing if you learn it and then use it straight away
if you store it in a sponge it is not stealing. this is true and good. great work munky
We have done cover of 2 guitar songs such as the ones I said^^ but the thing is I don't know they made it work the way it did.
I don't think there's such a thing as "not ready to write music",
The TS is asking questions SO basic he clearly has no idea about writing music. He should just play covers and see what the guitarists are doing.
lol munkey /facepalm.
TS, you're always ready to write music, if you got specific question on how to get this and that sound, just simply find a song or band that creates this sound and figure out by ear what they're doing. After that go back to making your own stuff and use this new found knowledge to guide you.
But you can still take advice from people. It's the same as learning to play the guitar. Nobody learns it for you. You learn to play it.
I don't think TS asked us to write him his guitar parts.
Our band is writing an original and we are trying to find a rhythm guitar section to go with the lead guitar when it is not playing a melody or a solo. Any ideas on how to construct that. Much appreciated.
I think he asked advice on how to write second guitar parts.
But yeah, I agree that TS should just try it himself. But still, our advice may give him more ideas. Different kind of ways to approach it. For example if TS only listens to bands like Metallica that always just double the rhythm parts, he will never even think of any other ways of writing guitar parts.
If you read TS's posts, he said that he doesn't want us to write him the parts. He was just asking how people usually do it.
Well, yes and no. As far as the small world of art music is concerned, we can say that it's his idea. But, he is merely calling attention to something that has always been - sound is all around us, and, at least to him, it is a kind of music. This falls in line with the zen concept of realizing something that has always been (like the sect that believes that we have always been enlightened, but we haven't always realized it). In this sense, Cage is making us realize something that has always been - just a finger pointing at the moon.
While that's true in general, I think Cage did succeed, for the most part, in taking himself out of the composition by leaving the sounds that occur during the performance of 4'33" completely to chance - an extreme case of what he called "indeterminacy." The paradox is, of course, that his intention was to have no intention (how zen is that?). In that sense, his intention is certainly imposed on the performance. But, in this case, his intention is essentially empty because if 4'33" were written by anyone else (or everyone else), the outcome would still be the same in terms of the random sounds that would occur during the performance, because the performer(s) are instructed to do nothing. In other words, his intention is nothing and everything at the same time. The author says nothing yet says everything, or anything.
I don't know. I think you can write music whenever you want. If you feel inspired, you can write music. TS didn't say he can't come up with songs. He said he doesn't know what to do with the second guitar part. And IMO people can give him advice. You can learn from other people too. At least they can give you suggestions. TS can (and will) still figure it out himself - he will try different things and go with the one that works best.
Also, writing music isn't about writing rhythm/lead guitar parts. It's about writing music. You can be a good songwriter without being able to play an instrument that well.
i don't think that means anything
what the hell advice are you on about?
also what makes a means of expressing yourself legitimate?
I think this also leads into another concept, which is the death of the author (the author and his intentions and historical context are irrelevant to the interpretation of a work of literature). And piling on top of that, I also think that that leads to his work with chance and taking himself out of the work. Representing pure sound with no intent.
because people want to express, not piss about learning shit
because they're human
No, it's not the least bit constructive but it just seemed like the right place for that quote.
Lol just playing songs i like. But i want to take it more seriously since i know i can come up with some good stuff to play. I have lessons saved i understand the concepts i guess the title is misleading i just do not remember the guitar as notes. What can i do to make it easier or some advice for this
This bothers me a lot because I feel completely lost when I try to figure this stuff out. How should I go about relearning the guitar if you will. I need to start seeing the fretboard as notes and not numbers like tabs and shit. I kind of have an idea but If I do not know the notes I don't see the point. I understand the concept of keys and the sharps in them, I know all the modes but I have a few questions on those but that is irrelevant for now. Anybody else ever have this problem? what ways did you find helped you see the guitar differently in a short time? I come up with some pretty creative shit, I do not want to sound arrogant but I am definitely held back by not knowing notes lol. any exercises or something or some sort of advice would be much appreciated.
I am starting a band and want to do New Wave Of British Heavy Metal...The point is we are not from England no really can someone tell me everything i need to know about NWOBHM?
So I'm just wondering. I've decided to dedicate my life to being the best guitarist/songwriter/singer/producer I can be. I have everything i need at home to record at whatever level I need. I just need to know where would be the best place for me to go to enhance my skills in all of these areas the best and fastest way. I can only push myself to learn on my own so much...
I'd like to ask you about making sound like this
How can I make it?
Thank you in advance!
I have been playing guitar for almost a year now, and I find myself stuck, not knowing how to move forward. Of course I have learned those open G C D E songs/ progressions and a couple of phrases or licks, along with a few barre chords. Recently, I have begun learning the notes on the fretboard. I found a nice diagram that had the notes in a circle and found it really easy to memorize. I have decided that I wanted to dig deeper into playing lead and ultimately want to improvise and solo. Now I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I am so confused by it. The Minor Pentatonic scale. As my main interest in music is Blues and Rock I know this is the starting point. I have memorized the 5 minor shapes and 1 major shape. I can play them fluently with no errors and without looking.Now what? I tried taking two super simple phrases and climbing up and down the scale and inserting the phrases. What do I need to do to be able to take those shapes and create a solo? I haven't been able to find an efficient way to make any sort of progress. It is unclear to me how you take that scale and start playing riffs along with another guitar or a jam track. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!
what do you think it's about?
and my problem with that is that my bit never says anything disregarding the history of music.
edit: the what's it about? goes for both of ya
What do you think of 4'33''?
That goes for all of you because you all seem to think it's shite lol
Technology has made it such that music can be produced and reproduced in so many forms that any attempt to consider rules as even remotely universally applicable seems ridiculous.
Technology makes some things more convenient, and opens up sonic possibilities, but it doesn't' erase the relevance of the entire history of music up till today…… edit….. or ANY of it.
Sorry that it wasn't what you wanted to hear.
