Just 3 chords? no way! - music


A scholar wrote me an email about the class "Ocean Dreams. " Here it is:

"Dear Edward, I can't accept as true that you're using just 3 chords for this piece. It sounds like it uses much more material. Delight tell me how you did it!"

Here's my fulfil - Dear B. First, merit for listening to my free lesson. To counter your question, the classified to receiving the full sound you hear in this piece is not in how many chords are used. It's in how the chord is voiced! Announcement in the class that your left hand is very much open and covers a full octave of the keyboard.

This is what creates the full sound you hear! My right hand is live air notes attractive close to the left. Also, I use the ethics of repetition and compare to assert interest. For example, you'll advertisement that there is a establishment divide up where the air repeats. Then an added bit is added (still only using the same 3 chords) with a different melody. Then back to the first theme so the whole piece can be cracked down into what's frequently know as ABA form (even although this piece was improvised).

Using repetition and contrast, we construct music that has a definable form or shape. ABA form is very, very customary and is used in just about all genres of music, chiefly New Age. This is why I at all times say that you don't need a lot of data to construct with. If you appreciate and use time veteran principles, you can use just 3 chords and build an full piece of music. I hope this answers your question. Regards, Edward Weiss.
