Chord structure

So, the structure of chords is a topic that we will develop today. And, first of all, let’s turn to the definition of a chord, specify what it is. A chord is a consonance, a sound complex. In a chord, at least three sounds should be sounded at once or one after another, because harmonies in which only two sounds are called differently are intervals. And yet, the classic definition of a chord says that the sounds of a chord are either already arranged in thirds, or they can be arranged in thirds when rearranged.

This last point, just, is directly related to the structure of the chord. Since modern harmony has gone far ahead of the standards established by the music of classical composers, this last remark about the arrangement of sounds by chords in a chord is not applicable to some modern chords, since their structure is based on a different principle for constructing a chord.

How to learn to sing beautifully: the basic rules of vocals

Many people dream of learning to sing beautifully. But is this activity suitable for everyone, or is it science for the elite?

When singing, the speech position, the correct position of the body, the sense of rhythm, and the emotional state are important.

Breathing should be abdominal or mixed, that is, you need to breathe with your stomach. And only to them, without raised shoulders, and without a set of air in the chest. Continue reading

How to keep musicians in a rock band?

Many leaders of rock groups cannot understand why the musicians in their collective are delayed for long. It would seem that this is the person with whom you will work all your life. But time passes, and your guitarist or vocalist leaves the group. Someone explains their departure as a lack of time or children. And someone doesn’t explain anything at all and just stops attending rehearsals. If this happens for the first time, then you can just find a replacement for the musician and not think about anything. But if such withdrawals are repeated, then it is worth thinking about the reasons.

From personal experience I can say that they can be both in the leader of the group, and in the musicians themselves. Here are a few options that I have come across repeatedly. Not a leader It happens that a musician who has gathered a group is a talented composer and poet. He has a lot of material and there is always something to work on. But by nature he is not a leader. Therefore, they generally do not perceive him as the leader of the group, argue with him and prevent him from moving forward. Very often such people are used to achieve their goals. For example, a bass player is required in a group, but you just can’t find it. Continue reading
