Why music sounds good.


Mira Wilder says:

what about the music? who gives a rats ass if they are empty dots on the board! you gotta have rhythem and a good ear or your not a musician. Plus you have to hear the harmony…

Ha missingNo


It’s cool to know this which I do. But it’s a whole nother thing to explain it to those who know nothing. Well if it helps them understand then very good. I suppose for some this is the only way they will understand.

Just thought that it is worth mentioning that not all music is made with equal temperament and may have micro tonal properties (such as in allot of Blues music etc..) So it is not accurate to say that all music people have ever heard Is made with just those 12 notes. But I understand you are trying to simplify so people new to music can understand and visualize the concepts. Nice video!

michaos1 says:

It's a great way of Music Theory explanation and relation of each note to another, based on graphs. I learnt computer science in school and it's totally clear for me!

Zenon Schafer says:

Nice Video! Gracias.

I'd be interested in knowing more what you meant. I wasn't sure what the pattern was that would distinguish which circle would have all the lines converge on it.

Anand Kesavan says:

You don't need to break rules to create soulful/deep music that "moves" people. That's just lack of creativity. Look up Indian classical music and see how wonderful the compositions are (even with strictly pentatonic scales).

Jeremy Schantz says:

Finally someone that explains things the way my mind works. I've struggled with music theory for years and this was an awesome explanation with great visual aids. I wish there was hundreds more videos like this.

NearLife4life says:

this tutorial can be seen as garbage. break it down, homie. you're trying to do too much at once. establish diatonic harmony first by stating relationship. you confuse people by expecting them to know where you're coming from. one step at a time. you did establish diatonic harmony. but then you went off a tangent. teaching is a hard thing to in that you can't get ahead of yourself. id say, establish diatonic harmony, then integrate secondary dominants

cbmira01yt says:

In other words, non-diatonic tones are maximally separated in the octave, and there are seven ways to do this. Modes!

Waylanification says:

you actually need to know music theory to understand this stuff.

Nal says:

Notes don't sound the same at all, even in isolation…

Stupid Nonsense " construction"

Jonnah Smith says:

What a great idea, never saw music this way, tnx.

trufisp1 says:

…It's called broken symmetry…..symmetry is ''invisible''..(ground state/max entropy)..once broken (black circles) …positions become discernible ..and structures begin to form..
creativity is the hand-maiden of imagination ….

melancholiac says:

This does not make sense. It is very confusing. Just keep it simple.

Yeager Mcbipper says:

Bail out now… you will learn nothing other than what blurry circles and wild paper movements look like.

David James says:

Not all songs come from 12 notes. Other cultures use microtones which fall between our 12 note system. You gave wrong information.

downhill2400 says:

The Graphic demonstrates the Diatonic Chord Series very well! I wish the 7 circles were more easy to see.

Dan Mart says:

Maybe harveylegs knows music, but he is not a good teacher. This is needlessly complicated.

spanishflew says:

to introduce a different way of viewing things this has some value but i think its too abstract and vague for complete beginners.
