I Discovered An Interesting Blog Post
About 'Melody First'

Hello Music Enthousiast,
Thanks to have you on my blog again,





As I wrote in one of my previous blog posts
about Piano Improvisation

I have experimented with some melody sequences and
also actually did discover some pretty wild improvisations,

And did practice some of the principles that I wrote about earlier,
and although it does feel somewhat liberating that
the principles do give some guidance...,

Only although it feeling liberating feels good,
it also feels somewhat to much boundary-less, and

An actual song still feels somewhat further in to the future.
I did however find an interesting blog post
about how "Melody First" can give some boundaries
that can help to write lyrics.

In a blog post titled:

The Wonderful Limitations of your
Vocal Melody

I Did Find an Intersting Resource
about Song Forms



Thanks for reading my blog again today,


I still find it a challenge to actually
create the written notes into a
right Song Form and create an
actual song structure,

I did however find an interesting Forum that
You can now discover here in the left side bar of this blog.

and you can read more about

Song Forms an Overview
in the link here above.

Great Piano Improvisation Tips




Hello Music Fan,

in a previous post I wrote about

Providing Harmony Playing Chords

Since that video I have been practicing occasionally
and starting to get a better feel for where the
chords are located on the keyboard.


When I play by ear, occasionally it does
seem like I am Easily Playing Along
Like the Wind or a Rippling Creek
as I wrote about some time ago before.


Like a Rippling Creek and
Like Walking:


To elaborate a little on such Improvisations,
with doing some research on the Internet, I read
about a nice Analogy for such an approach,

Like Walking, your walk as
having 4 Fundamental Areas:

1) HOME, (like the base, like the house you keep returning to)
2) your front doorstep
3) the Sidewalk
4) a more distant destination


Now on Youtube I did find an other interesting video
that gives some insights into how to do improvisations
and be able to make it like an INTRO to a song
or make it like great MOOD Music.

Starting with the well known
John Lennon song Imagine
(see video here above)

Work in Progress II, Intro, Verse, Chorus etc.

Thanks for reading
this blog today,


Today I attempted to create some structure to the
song, with an Intro, Chorus, Verse,

Writing it all down in one of my
practical Specially Designed

Special Purpose Notebooks


also added a new Verse to it, and additional
new Bridges.

At A Guide To Song Forms
you can discover some more info about Song Forms.

Also wrote down lyrics with their matching Chords, only somehow the lyrics still
don't seem to fit corectly, so I do believe
that it still needs some work,
as I said a Work in Progress.

Also the Base Music I started with might need
some Rythem and possibly something of
a Base Guitar Riff?

Work in Progress I, Chords & Lyrics

Hello Music Fan thanks for
checking out my blog today,


In a previous post I wrote about Harmony & Melody,
and for a Song I discovered that I already had something
of a 'Bridge-melody' to start my Refrain with.

To further construct it with a first Verse I wrote lyrics for.

I do believe that the Chords for the 'Bridge-melody' are
pretty clear already, and also for the verse I now
have some chords that seem to match with the lyrics.
(see: Providing Harmony Playing Chords)

Although it's still all a Work in Progress....,

Writing it all down in one of my
practical Specially Designed

Special Purpose Notebooks
A rough and smooth process at the same time,
because from out of the blue, I already do seem to have lyrics
for a second verse, only you never know if I will need
to put them in the waste basket as it might end up in as your can
read in a previous post on my writing blog
titeld: Writing For The Waste Basket

writing Inspiration

Providing Harmony Playing Chords

Hello Music Fan,
Thanks for being on this blog,



Recently with Our Little Music Group
we talked about Harmony & Melody.

Harmony is - as I read in a dictionary -
an orderly or pleasing combination of elements in a whole,
like the notes in Chords.


A Melody that is as far as I understand
about a selection of Tone, Pitch and Rhythem

It looks to me like the Chords provide
a Harmony to carry a Melody.


To get some great insight and a grip on playing Chords
Here below you have a great video that helps with playing Chords:

Hello Music Fan,
Thanks for reading this blog,



Some time ago, when I was wearing the
Drumming Octopus Design T-shirt with
our EDS-logo in the Base Drum,
I got the question if it wouldn't be a good
idea to be able to put in your own text
in the Base Drum,

It's always great to hear great feedback
and since I do find it a great idea to do that
you now also have a choice to put in your own
text
in the Drumming Octopus T-shirt as you can see
here below:





Also Several Other
New T-shirt Designs:



BTW we also recently created several
other new T-shirt designs, like for example the one here below:

Our Little Music Group



Recently I joined a little Music Group with weekly meetings to talk about Music
and also actually making some Music together. We also talk about Music repertoire
and about songs we like, or talk about melodies and song lyrics we made.


Songwriting:

I also made some notes about Songwriting, writing down some lyrics now and than, and
for some time I have been collecting info about Songwriting from those notes,

I noticed that many Songwriters start with a Melody that has a certain - feel -
and later on develope lyrics that fit that feel, while I seem to have been
doing it the other way around.

So possibly this might be an interesting other approach
to experiment with.

More Fun Using a Beamer with Kareoke

Recently during a Kareokee performance
I saw an interesting other way
to see the Lyrics...,

Instead of seeing the Lyrics only on a TV-screen
or Monitor-screen seeing it projected on the wall
with a Beamer, makes it a lot easier to show the Lyrics.
To make it easy for lots of people to see.

That is a great idea for Kareoke,

Easlily Playing Along



Sometime ago on tv I saw an interview with a guitarist
explaining a word in an other language freely
translated as:

'Effortlessly' and how on the guitar you
can play something that gives a relaxing
feeling like 'The Wind' or a 'Rippling Creek'.


TAO Wisdom:


In a book about TAO-ism I read a somewhat
similar word in Chineese 'Woe Wei'
meaning 'Without Doing' Refering to just
a state of being instead of doing.

Establishing without interferance,
struggle, effort or egocentricity.


Playful


That's what I also enjoy when I play a
music instrument I expriment with several
types of instruments, and I like to use a
similar type of approach with just simply
playing along with music I hear.

With a Keyboard
it's easy to connect it to one
of our specially designed Head Phones.
Also with our Little Music Group
I sometimes play along on
my Mouthorgan.


BTW you can read more
about actual Worldclass Mouthorgan Magic
