We are really glad, that you guys enjoy the new video format. That way we can show you little nuances, that are otherwise hard to explain.
Today we want to dedicate our video to the subtle tweaks in a chord, that make a huge impact, because they instantly sound better.
Used chords - in detail
In the beginning you hear the full progression we will build - the result if you will.
The second sequence shows you the basic triads we used: F - Amin - G - Emin. Nothing crazy.
In the third example you hear only 1 shifted note, but it changes the dynamic of the progression entirely.
The simple G major chord gets rearranged to a Gsus4 chord, which means that we get rid of the third (the note B in that case) which is displayed in the chord description by “sus” - sus from suspended.
The fourth sequence adds more notes - the 7 to the F, which is the major7 E. Also the Amin chord gets a 7 with the added G and the Emin is topped off with a D, which makes it Emin7.
Now you can start playing around with some melodies - just take notes from the chords.
Try to implement an interesting rhythm, but one you can still whistle, if you want to make it catchy.
There will also be another post shortly, where we elaborate on “sus chords”. If you want to know more about writing chords, chord progressions and melodies, JOIN OUR FREE MINI COURSE NOW! You will find the link in the story!
