chordsgalore·484 videos Of the many ways to make your piano playing more exciting and interesting, chord substitution is almost at the top of the list. If you can surprise your listeners with an unexpected sequence of chords which is unlike what they have heard in the past, it lifts your playing to an entirely new level. This is a 3-part series of videos — this is part one. Be sure and watch part 2 and part 3 also (here on YouTube). For more piano lessons come on over to

chordsgalore·484 videos — Circle of Fifths — The chord progressions in songs often follow the circle of keys, usually to the right. (By the way, the circle of keys is often called the Circle of 5ths or the Circle of 4ths, but it’s the same thing — just depends on whether you move to the right or to the left on the circle). Notice that the flat keys are on the right hand side of the circle, while the sharp keys are on the left hand side of the circle. For more detail on the Circle, come over to…

Music Theory: Tri-Tone (Flat-Five) Substitution Video:…

Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…

Q: I’m practicing writing in new styles of music and I would like to learn more regarding, “Resolution.” It seems like the cornerstone of how song sections interact! A common topic discussed quite a lot is an idea called, ‘tension & resolution.’ Could you make a video lesson that focuses on this tension & resolution concept, and could you include examples?
Norman — Spring, TX. USA

A: Generally, how song sections resolve will be pretty much the same regardless of what kind of music you’re playing or learning. So, having a deeper understanding of this process would of course greatly benefit any guitar player who composes music for fun, or for performance. The principles of Western harmony apply to all Western musical styles, so whether you make a study of; Mozart, or Jimi Hendrix the building blocks of Tension & Resolution are basically the same. This is why it is so important to learn all kinds of songs. By learning how the color and tension tones create a sense of resolution, you’ll train your ear to recognize those movements… plus, you’ll be able to use those sounds to gain access to new musical ideas to more quickly compose your own songs. In the video lesson, (to help you better understand how tones interact when harmonies resolve), I begin by examining a couple of resolutions upon a music staff. Then, we head over to the guitar neck where I demonstrate several examples of how resolutions function, and why they sound they end up sounding way they do.
