Re: what key is this?

But I don't see how we have F# in there ? He's playing A-C-E, G-B-D and E-G-B All those are naturals and they all fit into C major or A minor. Sure it also fits into G major, or E minor, or A dorian, but since we don't have anything else if he plays the A minor scale it turns into A minor and if he ...

Re: what key is this?

Well it depends on what the melody does right? Am,G,Am,Em could be in Aminor ( Cmajor ) It could be a vi,V,vi,iii but if the melody does something that includes an F# then it is in G major, but you would call it A dorian because of the tonal center? I think that the F doesn't sound quite right becau...

Secondary Relatives ?

So I was taking a class the other day and my teacher talked about secondary relatives. So he said the third note is the secondary relative of the I. So E-G-B is the secondary relative of C-E-G ( even more if you add the maj 7) B ii is relative minor to IV iii is relative minor to V, IV is secondary ...

Re: C 6/9...Sure but all the time ?

If it's written by somebody without a solid foundation in music fundamentals, it might be mis-named. Guitarists tend to be guilty of this pretty often - they know that a fingering CAN be called a C6/9, so that's what they call it, regardless of the context. If your tonality is strongly established ...

C 6/9...Sure but all the time ?

Some stuff in D major but the tonal center was more B minor so lets call it what it is. So I was just doing some chords and then did a C 6/9 shape,and now I was thinking well that isn't really C 6/9 in this particular progression. The progression moves quickly as in two eight notes from B minor to A...

Re: Ways to modulate.

Ohh so using the C#dim would be a kind of chromatic movement yes ? Because in C you have CEG and in C#dim you would have C#-E-G, that puts you in there except for the G, then you go to F#m ( which is the ii of E ) which has F#-A-C# and then B7 ( the V of E ) and you end up in E. That ii- V- I in the...

Those are the ones I love. I am so used to my wide Ibanez RG neck, anything else feels cramped.

Ways to modulate.

Well we are playing Somewhere Over the Rainbow ( Wizard of Oz song ) for an upcoming play ( The wizard of Oz) in C Major but the singer's voice is just not right for that song in C major so we decided we would start with the brass in C and then somehow modulate to a better key for the singer. Surely...

Hybrid Voices

So I heard about this, and asked a few people about what it was, and since nobody knew I figure it must be something very advanced O_O. So anybody have a clue on what " Hybrid Voices" means or is. I then read something on Homophony and Polyphony and figured it had to do something with that? Enlighte...

Re: How fast ( metronome ) can you play a scale?

Wow that was quick. Wow for not playing alot in 2 weeks, thats pretty nice. You're probably a bit faster than me when you practice every day. Anyhow, since I already started on my post I'm going to talk about my new teacher. He is the son of my old teacher, when I say son, he is like 30 years old,bu...
