The MYSTERY Chord – MinMaj7 (Minor Major 7th) [MUSIC THEORY / SONGWRITING LESSON]

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on November 9, 2018

Thank you to my Patreon supporters! They literally are why these lessons exist. https://bit.ly/2zFwzOO My new 80’s single – https://youtu.be/bHwwJihitl0 The minMaj7 chord is a hilariously unique and distinct chord that is almost universally perceived as mysterious, creepy, or uncertain. I ask all my students how chords “feel” to them and none of them have EVER named this chord with a positive or bright emotion. It’s good for a gag, but is also very lovely when combined in melodic ways. This video demonstrates the basics of the minor major 7th chord, the music theory on how to build it, where you may have heard it before, and some advice on how you might use it yourself. A special thank you to: Linas Orentas Marek Pawlowski John Arnold Christopher Swanson Marc Bulandr

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.

BILL HILTON – Learning piano chords in difficult keys

Sometimes as a pianist it’s easy to get ‘trapped’ in just a few keys that you feel comfortable with. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it can mean that you find yourself in trouble if you’re playing piano in a band, or accompanying a singer, and you’re asked to play in a more difficult key – working the chords out on paper is straightforward enough, but you can find that they don’t fall under your fingers on the piano keyboard as easily as chords do in more familiar keys. In this tutorial I look at a simple exercise you can do to get familiar with the different chord shapes in every major key (and ever minor key, if you use a minor chord progression).
