Practical Skills Week 5
Updated: Mar 31, 2020
I opened my project today and listened to it continuously in order to get my creativity flowing, and I wrote more of my first song as well as played out a structure for the final product.
First of all the structure of this song will be split into four parts:
The Song begins by playing the chords of A and B section quietly
The A and B part is then played again with the same chords but with a main melody on top of it.
I will then Solo on both A and B section.
After the solo the drums will fade and I will do some mild improvisation alongside the single note bass, song will slowly end.
I also recorded my track using my keyboard and a drummer plugin in Logic Pro X. In the recording I played the 1st and 2nd part of my plan, as well as my attempt to improvise at 1:36. Please be aware that this is just a sample of my ideas, I will still need to throughly practice the piece before attempting to record it.
The song still clearly need some work but I will continue that tomorrow. I am also considering beginning my second composition alongside my on Sunday.
The overall structure of the song is complete, and I will need to establish a bridge today. Looking at the ambiguous feel of the genre I decided to write a section with only suspended chords, I simply experimented with a few notes and went with my gut feeling of what sounded right to me.
I also wanted to create a unique rhythm when playing the chords and here is the result split into two parts:
With an established bridge, the song is complete. I will need to give it some to sink into my head before making further changes. I feel like it is time to move onto the next song.
