ART OF COMPOSING – What Are Inversions

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on February 13, 2018

Published on Sep 20, 2017

What are harmonic inversions? If you’re not using them, you run the risk of writing very boring progressions and pieces. But they don’t have to be a scary confusing thing. In this episode, I try to unpack them just a little bit and make them just a little more useful and less intimidating.

GARY EWER – Choosing the Chords That Work With Your Melody

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on January 18, 2018

You’ll notice that when you’ve got a melody,

the notes of that melody imply the chords you’re likely to use.

That’s not to say that you’ve got no choice in the matter, of course.

For every chord you might use,

there is a list of chords that could serve as substitutes.

BILL HILTON – Slash Chords – Explained in Five Minutes || Piano Questions Answered –

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on January 14, 2018

Published on Jan 11, 2018

Slash chords come up pretty regularly in the comments underneath my piano tutorials, so I thought this first episode in my new Piano Questions Answered series was a good place to explain them. More on piano chords in my book, How To Really Play The Piano: http://www.billspianopages.com/how-to… Slash chords aren’t massively complicated: they’re just a quick way of specifying which bass note should be played under a particular chord. If you see a chord without a slash, it implies that the root is the bass note – i.e., the note that the chord is named after. If a slash is used, it’s usually the third or the fifth of the chord that becomes the bass note (or the seventh in dominant or minor seventh chords, rarely in major sevenths). Specifying bass voicings of chords is useful because of the importance of the bass note in any chord: it’s the single note that above all other (OK, maybe equal with the top note) gives a chord its particular flavour and feeling.
