Already know the theory? Skip to 08:07 to hear OCTERMINUS Tab and MP3 posted at my Patreon: Diminshed 7th chords aka Full Diminshed chords are symmetrical and any note can be considered the root note. They can resolve up a half step to a major chord or a minor chord (or down a whole step to a major or minor chord). Since there are 4 potential roots, this leaves us with 4 places we can modulate to from any given diminshed 7th chord. In this video I explain this concept, then demonstrate how I wrote a piece of music using [More]

This occurs a LOT in modern music, especially the V7/vi, and learning your secondary dominants will help you write better and more interesting chord progressions. These chords introduce non-diatonic notes (notes outside the scale) so it is usually obvious to the ear that there is something unique and interesting about these chords when [More]

A tour of the facilities and some of the possibilities in Cubase’s Chord Pads section, allowing the quick and easy generation of chord progressions, even when you don’t have access to a full MIDI keyboard.
Thank you to my Patreon supporters! They literally are why these lessons exist. My new 80’s single – The minMaj7 chord is a hilariously unique and distinct chord that is almost universally perceived as mysterious, creepy, or uncertain. I ask all my students how chords “feel” to them and none of them have EVER named this chord with a positive or bright emotion. It’s good for a gag, but is also very lovely when combined in melodic ways. This video demonstrates the basics of the minor major 7th chord, the music theory on how to build it, where [More]
Chord pads in Cubase allow you to trigger full chords from single MIDI notes and create a chord progression or series of arpeggios from a single MIDI melody. This video explains how to enable the chord pads, how to assign different chords and voicings, recording and playing them in a variety of different ways. We hope you find this video entertaining and useful. If you like what you see, please leave a comment and tell us what you think. Thank you.

Learn how Thom Yorke (Radiohead) writes a chord progression by mixing the Dorian mode with the Aeolian mode, then giving it a twist – as heard in “Suspirium” from the Suspiria film soundtrack. ►Free eBook: ►Apprenticeship Course: ►Songwriting & Producing PDF: The two main elements that make “Suspirium” stand out, are its haunting chords and hypnotic rhythm. The haunting chord progression is created by mixing the Dorian mode with the Aeolian mode, and then using all major chords other than the root chord, which is obviously a minor (but even that minor root chord is eventually turned [More]
