  1. Music Theory
    Hi, maybe beginner question and im kind of self educating myself /trying to learn, so forgive me if my ideas are disjointed , and ty for you patience: If i make a chord, like Dm7, how do i figure out what it resolves to? I get that you look at the tones, each one has a tendency.. but then i...
  2. Music Theory
    hopefully i dont get in trouble for asking about songs from the wrong genre lol but idk anyone else who knows theory well. I was trying to reverse engineer this song and i hit a road block https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/guns-n-roses/yesterdays-chords-12732 i think i figured out its in...
  3. Non-Classical Music
    Hi! So I was listening to one of my favourite RuPaul songs - Rock It (To the Moon). Regardless of your opinion of the artist or the song, I wonder if anyone finds the harmony potentially interesting - the chorus (starting at 0:50) seems to follow the chord progression F#-E-B-D-E. The key...
  4. Music Theory
    Piece with transcription: Im very new to trying to comprehend theory/ why things sound the way they do/ how notes go together. I broke down the notes in the first few measures of this song , and put them into a chord analyzer to see what was going on, but that didn't really shed any more light...
  5. Music Theory
    I've been writing Classical style music (especially Classical Era style) for several years now (all self-taught), and via experimentation and research I've recently improved and become much more comfortable with modulating. But the one area I'm still greatly struggling with is the development...
  6. Music Theory
    Hello. I am trying to learn how this new, modern epic music works. I would have few questions for someone who is in mood to help me here. 1. Where to start building Epic track (chords, main melody, ostinato...)? 2. How to built ostinato using violins or high strings with low strings or cello...

    I could probably figure this out on my own, but I don't have my piano with me, it's put away at the time. What are the chord progressions of this theme from about 0:42 - 1:01? This is one of my favorite themes by James Horner, and one of my favorite progressions, but I don't know what it is. I...
  8. Music Theory
    He said of Weber's opera, " 'Euryanthe' is an accumulation of diminished seventh chords -- all little backdoors!" I have no idea what this means. Anybody?
  9. Music Theory
    How much does it differ from CP tonality? How "functional" (whatever that means!) it is? I don't think the V-I cadence is actually all that important for "establishing tonality" in popular music. I mean, I guess it's fairly common to end a piece/section with those chords but I think that's more...

    Hello all, Just a quick query to put to the forum, I've just started on the waldstein third mvt and have been getting on great, But I've been watching through some different renditions and I'm playing the melody at the very beginning with right hand and the broken chords with left, the opposite...

    I'd like to start this thread to see the most popular endings to different pieces of music. While "ending" is a bit of a vague term, I think this might be fun to hear opinions on some finishes that left a big impact, be it a grand chord that shakes the concert hall... or the dying of sound...
  12. Music Theory
    I've been looking for a way of improving my writing, and I think even though I have played for years, I seem to be stuck using the same chords, and melodies over and over, and would like to learn how to add to what I can do, I've tried looking up on YouTube, but maybe I am searching for the...
