I liked the free-form structure of the learning from the 2nd week onward.

I didn’t like how late we started the leadership project, and I feel like we should’ve started it during the second week.

If I took the class again I would’ve regimented my time a lot better, and focused on the major projects.

School of Rock – Day 14 – Voice, Preparation, and Presentation

SUMMARY

Today I finished composing the main parts of our song, and turned it in.

LEADERSHIP ACTIVITY

SMART Goal

By July 23rd, I will complete a song for the School of Rock class that will feature all the parts of a song that are present in song structure for my class project.

Leadership Project (SMART Goal Evidence)

This week I completed my leadership project for the School of Rock, in which me, and my partner for the project had to plan, organize, and compose a song from the time span of the beginning of the week to the end.

Composition Elements

CONTROL ROOM (RECORDING & MIXING)

We spent about 6 hours working on the project today.

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

  • Today I learned all about using every aspect of sound trap. The main problems that I had were with matching the parts of the song together after recording, which I sort of solved through layering the recorded version with the MIDI version of the parts.

All I was doing was writing the song today, which was fun at first, but it was hard to come up with ideas, the middle of the process was the best part, because i was just thinking of a bunch of ideas, towards the end of the process Ryan and I began a downward spiral into insanity from our ideas clashing with each other, our recordings not working, and a general confusion with the software.

School of Rock – Day 13 – Collaboration and Growth – Part 3

CLASSROOM (THEORY & ANALYSIS)

Notes on:

Songexploder - Tame Impala:

Episode 183: Tame Impala

  • Tame Impala takes apart his song "It Might Be Time"
  • He talks about how working alone on a song reduces the anxiety that the song might go nowhere, and will take forever.
  • He likes to vary the sound of his instrument, so that he has a more unique creative exploration.
  • He finds it hard to start making a song without good drums.
  • He tends to focus a lot more on the sound and vibe of the music rather than the music theory elements.
  • In this song he distorted all of the instruments, but put it to a more jazzy chord progression.
  • He tries to make all of the song in one burst of creativity, and not over time.

STUDIO (SONGWRITING)

Notes on:

5 Easy But Powerful Songwriting Tricks:

  • Adding a different chords to a pre-established progression during the change of one part of the song to another sounds good.
  • Making the listener wait for the drop of a song creates more tension, and makes the release feel stronger.
  • Verse 2 Should often be shorter than verse 1 to get to the chorus.
Selecting Your First Single | The Songwriting Corner:

  • The most important elements to the quality of a song are the Dramatic impact of the listener.
  • The emotional impact, and how it resonates with people.
  • That the lyrics, and music of the song represents on a morals, and meaning level.
  • An the Logical level of how the music theory and structure of the song are.
Overtones are awesome. Here is why:

  • When you play a note on an instrument the note is note purely the note, but instead a combination of that note, and overtones, such as octaves, fifths, etc.
  • adding distortion to a notes creates more overtones.
  • The addition of overtones allows the sounds to sound more natural, and full.
  • This is what makes layering a single melody on different instruments sound much better.
The Mother of All Chords (really):

  • The mother chords contains all of the 12 notes, thus containing all of the other chords that there can be in it.
  • The chords has an awfully horrifying sound, and really conflicts with western style music.

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

Today I learned how to incorporate different small tweaks into my songs to make them better, as well as how to develop my own sound by using overtones, as well as using multiple different types of sounds from the videos by Soundexploder and through Youtube.

School of Rock – Day 10 – Community

SUMMARY

Today I worked on making a short song, as well as journaling about the Anamanaguchi song-"Prom Night".

LEADERSHIP ACTIVITY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVEaNXfuNDk

For the leadership project we have created a Trello board to make our workflow for our song easier.

CLASSROOM (THEORY & ANALYSIS)

"Episode 17: Anamanaguchi":
-The episode is breaking down their song "Prom Night"
-They ended up using Nintendo consoles as their instruments, which gave them a very unique sound, and way to produce music.
-In using this instrument they weren't really able to make their melodies based on music theory, instead they made it purely based on what they thought sounded good.
-In the song they had to blend a more mechanical melodic lead with a very natural sounding voice.
-They see lyrics, especially in pop music as not mattering as much as the way that the vocals are sung.

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

Today I learned  from the songexploder website.  When making my song I had a hard time balancing all the instruments so that they wouldn't clash with each other, and you can tell that in the end recording.

"How Radiohead Writes A Chord Progression" - Notes:
-In their song creep the chord progression is in g major, but there is a modal change to a Cm chord that is found in g minor.
-Radiohead bases the melodies they make on the chords, as to create harmony based around those.
-With a lot of radio head music they change their chords from minor to major.
-They tend to make their music descend by half steps.
-Their chord progression tend to not be 4 bars long, which makes the music less attention grabbing.
-Their chords make big jumps in contrast to the melody.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8tQMplRr4A

"How Metallica Writes A Song" - Notes:
-They extenuate their on beats to make their music feel heavier.
-When making their melodies they return to the one and the five.
-They often use the phrygian scale in their riffs.
-They use a very masculine image.

Kevin Kelly has realize that you can be content with having very little, and just living while doing what you like. He also talked about how when writing you want to write in a way that keeps you from writing with too much formality or informality.

School of Rock – Day 8 – Leadership

SUMMARY

Today I worked on the creative process, and songwriting.

LEADERSHIP ACTIVITY

Leading by being a part of a team.

CLASSROOM (THEORY & ANALYSIS)

"How The Weeknd Writes a Melody" Notes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLbPibfP0-Y&list=PLdJiGmD0fTvt3JLduOjR0lvoQ82ek461u&index=2

-The Weeknd uses a Michael Jackson like falsetto.

-Almost all of the Weeknd's songs are in minors keys.

-The Weeknd also almost exclusively sings along the 5 and 4 interval.

-Has a sad, cool sound.

-Has a more complex variety of notes that he uses.

-The Weeknd uses rhythmic contrast between his voice and the accompaniment. Such as using a fast singing rhythm to a slower accompaniment.


"The Making of Lil Peep's "Benz Truck" Notes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7w369RuWMQ&list=PLlBigmhynF-Wwg-s1BCw-MOQPEhNtUn_Q&index=82&t=0s

-When making the song they experimented for a long time until they found a part of the song that they wanted to use as a loop.

-Their whole song writing process was them expanding around this one loop, and gradually changing it to fit a mood.

-They then begin to die down the rest of the song when the vocals begin to come in.


"What makes this song great? System of a down." Notes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuQIopfRH00&list=PLW0NGgv1qnfzb1klL6Vw9B0aiM7ryfXV_&index=10&t=0s

-In the song the singer mirrors the same melodic changes that the guitars are going through.

-The song alternates heavily between high tension, and a soothing low tension chorus.

 

OUTSIDE (CREATIVITY & THE BRAIN)

My thoughts:
-When you don't have any schedule or deadlines to finish work then you'll begin to lose your focus, and lose all you ability to work.

-You often don't come up with ideas when actively trying to come up with them, you often have them when doing something menial.

-One of the most important parts to coming up with ideas is learning which ideas will be good or bad.

STUDIO (SONGWRITING)

-When making a song you most of the time won't need to use complicated chords.

-You should base the quality of your music based on how you like it.

-You should stick to 1 to 2 chords per bar.

-The important relationship in a song is between the melody and the bass.

-After you've found a melody you should compliment it with a bass.

-Your chord should be picked out with the sort of emotion that you're trying to convey.



- When making a song the title is supposed to briefly convey the meaning and emotion of it.

The title of a song it often the most powerful lyric of the song.

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

I learned from the Holistic songwriting videos about how to make different elements of songs like bass and melody, as well as how they play off of each other.

I chose the video: "How Muse (Doesn't?) Write a chords progression. The points of the video that were important we're:

-Muse songs actively seek your attention.
-Muse songs have a lot of tension.
-Muse take influence from classical music.
-Muse's messages are more large scale, like politics.
-Muse uses more varied chords such as augmented chords.
-Muse changes their progression one step at a time.
-Muse typically only has an implied melody.
-While parts of the song are playing complex attention grabbing pieces the rest of the parts of accompaniment are playing simple pieces.

School of Rock – Day 6 – Bass Basics

SUMMARY

Today I learned about the fundamentals of bass, and how to record and use it in a song.

CLASSROOM

Watch How Bass Works (47 minutes)

Bass is the youngest element of music.
Tonality is what causes western music to sound different form other music.
Bass started by using the root notes of the chords in the song it is played in.
Organs were at one point the only instrument able to make a proper bass sound.
Contrary motion is when the bass moves opposite to the rest of the song.
When incorporating a scale into the bass line you get what is called a "walking bass".
The chromatic scale opens up a wider variety that a bass line can change a song.
A bass phrase that is repeated over and over is called a ground bass.
Inversions in the bass can completely change the structure of how the chords sound.
The bass didn't become prominent until the 19th century.
Riffs are small phrases in a song that are used in the beginning or key points in a song.
James Jamison was changed from being the foundation of the song to being an accompaniment through more complex bass lines that didn't just mirror the melody.
Bass took over dance music, through the synth bass.

LAB

Step 1: Watch How to write Chromatic Notes in Hookpad (some bass lines are based on chromatic scale)

Step 2: Watch 3 ways to use Hookpad’s MIDI drag-drop feature (you can create basslines and more and export to Soundtrap and other DAW – digital audio workstations)

Screenshot from HookLab
Making a bass-line was easy, I decided to do it by making the bass-line and then adding the chords that complemented it.

PRACTICE ROOM

Step 1: Watch How To Add Bass Notes [Guitar Strumming Lessons] by Tomas Michaud

Step 2: Download the guitar TABS for his exercise (PDF)

Step 3: Practice one of the exercises

I'm already experienced with the guitar, and its pretty easy to add bass notes tom a chord, but personally I don't think it sounds that great, at least for the way that he did it in the video.

Choice 2: Flip through the Quizlet on Bass Composition Techniques flashcards a couple times.

What makes these notes stand out is how they aren't just following the root notes of a song at a standard pace.
Screenshot from Quizlet Bass Composition Techniques
When I think of a great bass-line I think of Longview by Greenday, what makes it different from other bass-lines is how it stands out from the rest of the song, it feels like the central drive of the song.

STUDIO

Play around with playing the low E string (6th string on the top of the neck) on your guitar. Create a simple three note-ish bassline. Get funky with it.  Try different plucking tempos to great the groove. You can even try playing Smoke on the Water

Screenshot from Kidsguitarzone.com
I composed a bass-line that is in drop d so you can play both the e and a string together as the bass-line. It went from a pluck on the open to a hammer on on the 5 and 7th fret, into another open the a hammer on on the 3 and 5th fret, then to a slide onto the 2nd fret.

CONTROL ROOM

The recording went how I would record any guitar part, The only problems I had were having to clip off excess audio to make it fit the notes.

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

The main thing that I learned today were how to make bass-lines from the the Goodall videos, which I always find really helpful.
