Funk chord progressions piano|Extreme jazz fusion re-harmonization
I used a lot of chords in the cover released last week. How do you organize pop music like this? But more importantly, why do you need to make this arrangement? Beginning with this style of re-arranging, you can trace to Dirty Loop The work of this Swedish orchestra released in July 2011 They used cut-and-sound and harmony to write on many pops like Justin’s Baby. Many young musicians immediately impressed A fusion of a lot of gospel and jazz ingredients. Their arrangement is quite novel and interesting. But the music style of Dirty Loop is not particularly novel. They just use the elements that jazz players have used for a long time. Probably started in 1950 Jazz musicians will be popular in the music of Tin Pan Street And American music songs, as well as American film music These pieces are used as materials for improvisation in a pure bob. These records can be used as an example Such as Sonny Rollins’s surrey with the fringe on top, this music in the musical _ Oklahoma. Or maybe someday my prince will come by Miles Davis, this is the music from Snow White.
The audience can recognize these songs immediately Because these songs were popular culture at the time, today’s Justin. But these songs are written with a bolder harmony Once you taste the taste of these advanced chords Those simple three chords can no longer satisfy you. “Listen! You took a bite and it was very delicious. Jue chord These things can no longer satisfy me… How do you organize pop music into this style? Let’s start with the most basic ones. The first step is to choose a popular piece of music. So… let’s find a simple pop song Look at the children now and listen to them.
Oh! Ed Sheeran’s Shap of you Let’s listen first, according to the original chords and melody, how do the first four bars sound? Ok, how can we make changes? Well, let’s use the chords to match the chords. To change the feel and color of a tune, you can simply change the chords. Turn the tonality into a major This does sound very different You can see how much the effect of harmony on music is. You may find that we have changed the melody slightly. Because the original song stops at D at the end of every sentence. We changed it to F to make the melody and chords more compatible. But if you don’t want to change the melody, or don’t want to use this technique We can also use “non-cyclic chords” The original version is an example of using “loop chord progression.” From a small string of chords, in a similar “terminated” manner.
This is quite common in pop music or electronic music. This is sometimes because of the creative process or software. For example, Ableton live, a software that can be easily created through loops. This is convenient, but it is also subject to many restrictions. If we extend the chord progression so that it contains all four bars instead of two bars? This makes the music more storyful We start with the F major chord and then use the A genus Come as an auxiliary chord of D. In a pivotal tone, in the third section, it is converted into a D minor. Even so, this chord progression is still a bit boring. Until used Very, rhythmic, harmonized ~~ (very the harmonic rythm) Harmony rhythm refers to the speed of changing chords From one chord to the next chord So far, we have a half note as the length of the chord. In other words, change one chord every two shots. It feels good But we can make it more storyful As long as some segments in the music increase the speed of the chord Expand existing chords Ok, I saw what you did.
Very good, great But I didn’t hear the most advanced chord rematch! ! ! Where is the taste? Why is there no taste?喔~ Delicious taste Okay, we can do it. Yeah…oh… The easiest way to make music tasteable is to Increase, a little, extension First try to use chords Construct on the same root Using this as an initial chord Add a third note to the triad to a seven degree Nine, eleven, or even thirteen This has a similar sound to the original chord, but the chord is more colorful.
To go beyond this, make it sound extraordinarily You can use the fifth lap of the seventh chord The root sound is in a five-degree circle Is a common technique in jazz and jazz arrangements. So you can use this The pop music that makes you rearranged sounds more like a jazz Use the chord of the seventh chord Then…what is hot~~ Second change to jazz~ Oh, this is very good. But what else can we do to make it more jazz Three-tone agent (lower generation five) The three-tone agent is a kind of chord It is the root of the chord attached to the target chord, and the sound obtained from the up/down three melody is the root note, which is a seventh chord.
(Simply speaking, the target chord is “the second grade is the seventh chord”) So if your target chord is a F major chord Its affiliated seventh chord is C7 C7 up/subordinate three full tone is Gb7 This is the triton sub (triton sub) You can think of the three full-tone agents as the seventh chord of the target chord to the upper semitone. Gb is a semitone of F to the superior Three-tone agent is a good way to increase color and fun Take a look at this example. Oh yeah~~ This taste! This is what I want! This is jazz, I am eager for jazz. How can you be more jazz? I want a more jazz !!!!! before this We must first talk about some cruel facts about the reconciliation of harmony. This fact we actually talked about before. Except the first example We change the melody to match the F chord We almost ignore the relationship between melody and chords.
Traditionally, melody sounds must be composed of chords. however Even if the melody sound is not the composition of the chord Our ears still see the sound as an extension of the chord Especially in the frequent and dense segments of chord transformation For example, this G is on the F big seventh chord, We will tend to listen to it as a 9-degree sound Even if it is not the composition of the F big seventh chord This can only end here Because once we started talking about chords outside the tone We must be very sure Melody and chords can be put together I have a bass line that starts from D and is halftone down.
The next thing to do is Find chords, but don’t care about the current tuning or tonality Just construct from the bass line you just wrote, and make it fit the melody. Oh yeah~ Tai Jue~~ Oh yeah~~ But I don’t quite understand what happened just now… It seems… I can get this result in other ways… But… I am a bit confused Can you please tell me what you just did? From the beginning to the present, all the chords I use and carry out More or less can be seen as a function chord in D minor or F major This means that we can reasonably analyze, or anticipate the direction of the chord There is a wonderful and simple melody It’s that we don’t need to design a chord Make it functional on a specific tone replaced by Choose a non-functional chord Our ears are often unable to predict the direction of the chords.
This is because the chords are not from any one There is no trend towards any one On the other hand, the melody is tonal Melody is D minor And the chord is like a color on the melody. For example The second chord is a drop of D and a minus seven chords. Not a chord in D minor, or a chord of any relationship The reason why it exists alone Just because the melody tone emphasizes A and F It’s just the composition of the chord of the D and the chords. Our ears will notice one thing This incident will help the harmony flow That is the bass line down the semitone Using this technique does not require a strict semitone down.
You can also use full tone down, or even not use the downlink Upstream is also possible Take a look at this bass up example Ok… So… this is full of jazz… But I am still not quite sure How did you choose these chords… Does this have any specific theoretical basis? To support you in choosing chords ………. No…. Maybe a little… but… ….. Not too… Instead of trying to explain the direction of the chord Or consider the function of this chord in this tune Start now You have unlimited possibilities To operate your harmony configuration The only thing you can rely on is Your ears!!!!! Eliminate the function and sound And others who don’t have Our fruit is the only remaining Only the composer’s family previously laid “non-functional and acoustic” and…. There are really few left… The techniques we use The so-called “melody and bass line” technique But this is just the fur of other skills that have been developed for many years. Ok? So I will come to see this movie?? What do you think?? What is the skill! Can you tell me any relevant information? Ok, there are some possibilities here.
First look at the first one This technique is called “mirror interval chord” The sound of the right hand is played with the left hand, and the vertical is symmetric with the D sound. The taste of this song…. Our channel friend, Bartok It is this loyal fan of this technique (mirror chord) We can use some weird chords Don’t think too much about what those chords are called They are like pigments You can use a specific interval to form a specific sound color Whether you love or not love The decision is entirely in you Listen to see how this next episode This is an example of a constant structure (constant sctructure) Using the chords of the big seventh chord in the three-degree up-and-down loop And change the melody to the chord Polytonic system means you have multiple tonal centers And in the five-degree circle, each tone is the same distance from each other.
John coltrane official multi-tuning system for users, often used As in Giant step And Countdown Constant structure repeatedly uses chords of the same structure In this example, the chord structure used is the big seventh chord. What about the example below? This uses a 12-tone column and sound recombination. And melody reprogramming The melody was rewritten to match the 12-tone column And the piano is in the form of five tones Decompose chord crawling …. …….. ……….. Hey……. Quote Jjeff Goldblum But your scientist only cares about the ability to resurrect dinosaurs. Instead of whether it should be done This ending is too heavy I don’t think this sounds bad. To be honest, I might not match this (chords) Maybe not and This is no problem at all.
The more conflicting the harmony is, The more disharmonious There will be a higher probability of losing the audience. Dirty Loop released its first film in July 2011 But in November of the same year Electronic double group, Knower Released a rather unusual dubstep electronic sound cover Promises Knowers version of “Promises” Serious transformation (destruction) of harmony and melody Nero feels great And posted on social platforms However, the reaction of the fans a little… Not very friendly…. “This is super bad” “This is super super bad! Not lying!” “Nero said: I hope I have never lived…” “Nero brought me here (cry” “Compiled as you are” “Rotten” “Simple noise” “You should see yourself and value music.
Both will improve…” “I heard three small? I thought it was my mac speaker or how?” “It’s fucking bad” “Professional instructions: Please make sure the synthesizer and vocals are on the same tone!!!” We can learn something from this example. You can’t change too much Must stop before the harmony is changed to deformity But actually Most musicians don’t care if music is abnormal Instead, I only care if the music can express their meaning faithfully. Like John Coltrane doesn’t care about anyone’s feelings Especially when he uses “My favorite thing” in “真善美” Use it as the ultimate theme in avant garde The song is nearly an hour long and impressive. I can expect that fans of truth, goodness and beauty will also have the same criticism (laughs) Like this extreme harmony color For example, the three examples I demonstrated earlier It is relatively unharmonious with popular music.
But if it causes disharmony is your intention That’s very good In my case, I am particularly good at it. I like the challenge Also indulge in the pleasure of re-shaping pop music Like the former martyrs of the Jazz, made in the 1950s and 1960s. And the same contribution to music Anyway, thank you for watching. I am Adam Neerly. It’s fun to put these together. I hope everyone likes this video about “pop music and re-matching”.
