I just finished writing this article and wanted to share it with you:


The Major's Sad Cousin: The Relative Minor

If I were to ask you for a list of sad songs, what would come to mind? Perhaps you would say Moody River by Pat Boone, maybe Eva Cassidy's Songbird. What about Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven?

Elton John wrote "Sad Songs Say So Much." So true and then there is the music structure to look at because for sure minor chords sound sad or mysterious in many ways. If I were to ask you for a list of sad songs, what would come to mind? Perhaps you would say Moody River by Pat Boone, maybe Eva Cassidy's Songbird. What about Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven?
What is a relative minor chord you ask? Well, every major chord, scale or key has a relative minor chord, scale or key. So for every MAJOR KEY, there is a RELATIVE MINOR KEY that also shares the same key signature

Each relative minor scale begins on the 6th degree (Aeolian) of the RELATIVE MAJOR SCALE. The 6th note is the keynote (first note played) of the minor scale and the note from which the scale gets its name. 

C Major and A Minor 

D Major and B Minor 

E Major and C# Minor 

F Major and D Minor 

G Major and E Minor 

A Major and F# Minor 

B Major and G# Minor 

D Flat/ C# Major and B Flat Minor 

E Flat/ D# Major and C Minor 

G Flat/ F# Major and E Flat Minor 

A Flat/ G# Major and F Minor 

B Flat/ A# Major and G Minor 

STEPS TO PLAYING A MINOR SCALE: 

1. Find the relative major key of the minor scale that you want to play.
2. Play the relative major key starting and ending on the sixth degree. (the sixth degree of the relative major key should be the keynote of the minor scale that you want to play. You can also verify the relative major key by counting 3 half steps to the right. If it takes more or less than 3 half steps to get to the relative major key, then the relative major key that you have chosen is not correct.) 

So, now we’ve learned that the relative minor key, like the relative minor chord, begins and ends on the sixth note of a major scale. Here’s how you find a major key’s relative minor key. Find the sixth degree of the major scale. Starting there, playing the notes of the major scale all the way ‘til you hit the sixth degree one octave higher. Here’s an example using the key of C: 

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 5 6

C D E F G A B C D E F G A 


So you just found the relative minor of C major: The Key of A minor: The scale itself is a minor scale. Minor scales differ from the major scale in that they come in different flavors. That is, there are a handful of them. This one is the natural minor scale. 

Then there is The Harmonic Minor Scale: 

One of the strongest forces in Western music is the pull from the V chord to the I chord. By raising the lowered seventh of the natural minor back to a natural seventh, you make the dominant chord major rather than minor. 

Harmonic Minor: 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7 (8)
C Harmonic Minor: C D Eb F G Ab B ©


The Melodic Minor Scale: 

The melodic minor scale exists for melodic reasons. The b6 is raised to a natural 6 in the melodic minor but only when ascending. When descending, the need for the strong melodic pull from the natural 7 to 8 is gone, so the melodic minor is returned to its natural state: the natural minor scale, complete with b6 and b7. So in this respect, the melodic minor is a unique case in western music; a scale that is different in its ascending and descending forms. 

Melodic Minor Scale Pattern and C Melodic Scale: 

1 2 b3 4 5 6 7 (8) b7 b6 5 4 b3 2 1 

C D Eb F G A B (C) Bb Ab G F Eb D C 

You have now learned Natural, Harmonic and Melodic Minor Scales. Believe me, there’s still more minor scales to learn.

How Notes Move on The Staff and Third Day

The symbols for various dynamic markingsImage via Wikipedia
Notes move on the staff in three ways: 
  Step
Skip
Repeat 


Notes on or above the middle line have down stems.

Notes below the middle line have up stems.

Measuring Intervals 

The distance between two notes is called an interval. Another way to say it; the distance from the pitch of one note to the pitch of another.

2nd Interval:
On the keys a 2nd is like a step: from one key to the next key.
On the staff a 2nd is like a step: from line to space or space to line.

3rd Interval:
On the keys a 3rd is like a skip: from line to line or space to space. One skipped key is a 3rd.

4th Interval:
Two skipped keys is a 4th. On the staff a 4th is either line to space or space to line. On the keys a 4th is a larger skip.

5th Interval:
Three skipped keys is a 5th. On the staff a 5th is either line to line or space to space.

Ear Training Software
 
Melodic and Harmonic Intervals: 

A melodic interval has single notes, like notes in a melody that are played one at a time. If you sing a note and then another then this is a melodic interval.

A harmonic interval has two notes played together to make harmony in music. If two people each sing a different note at the same time then this is called a harmonic interval.

List of Songs with Intervals

Now that you know what intervals are why do you suppose we need to learn them?

Learning to recognize intervals, whether by sound, on paper, or an instrument, is extremely helpful for many reasons. Among them are chord building, improvisation, sight singing, composition, understanding and remembering keys and their related accidentals, and figure out music by ear. If you’re trying to play a melody that is in your head or on the radio, knowing your intervals eliminates most of the time spent searching for the right notes.

One of the coolest ways to add feeling and expression while playing those piano notes is to observe road map signs or what musician’s call Dynamics or dynamic markings.

Basically there are symbols that indicate varying degrees of volume. So we have degrees of loudness or softness.

Music has loud and soft signs called dynamics.

mf means medium loud.
Its Italian name is Mezzo Forte.

f means loud.
Its Italian name is forte. 

ff means very loud
Its Italian name is Fortissimo.
 
fff means very, very loud.
Its Italian name is Fortississimo.

ppp means very, very soft.
Its Italian name is Pianississimo. 

pp means very soft.
Its Italian name is Pianissimo. 

P means soft.
Its Italian name is Piano.

With this understanding of how notes move while playing quietly or loudly, you’ll enjoy hearing yourself play with more feeling in addition to technically playing the notes correctly. Have fun!

I told You before and I'll say once more

But You weren't there as far as I could see

But then I figured it out

That all along You're whispering to me 
              B         B4 B       
And I'm still listening

Just when I thought that I had caught a glimpse of

who You are 
    B              B4    B 
You taught me a lesson I needed to learn 
      B              B4    B 
Right from the very start 
  E                                  B          B4 B 
I never will be the man that I quite need to be 
    F#                    E                   B B4 B 
But that's alright 'cause You're enough for me

Other Side of the Radio by Chris Rice

Are you familiar with the artist  Chris Rice? Here's a short blurb from Wikipedia:


"Chris Rice is an American songwriter who works in the contemporary Christian music, contemporary folk, and adult contemporary genres with a style similar to David Wilcox and James Taylor. He became a recording artist as well in 1996 after signing a contract with Michael W. Smith's record label and releasing his debut album, Deep Enough to Dream."

Here is the chord chart to one of my favorite songs by Chris Rice called  Other Side of the Radio

Intro: Dsus  Asus 3x

Verse 1:

Dsus                                           Asus
Here I am on the other side of the radio
Dsus          Asus
Wonderin' why i'm here and why anybody cares what I say
Dsus               F#m
No i'm not a better man cause i'm singing songs on the radio
E        D
Cause we're all the same At the end of the day
Dsus        Asus
Now I imagine you on the other side of the radio
Dsus             Asus
Doin' your homework or driving with your windows down on the freeway
Dsus              F#m
I see you tapping the wheel i see you bobbing your head to the radio
E           D
Oh and it makes my day, to see that smile on your face
E   D     E   
And in some small way, I remember my place
A     E
Cause it's you and me singing the same song right now
    F#m       D
And maybe this'll bring us together somehow
      A        E   B  
 
And maybe there's a million people all singing along
       A          E
Somebody started thinking about the third line
      F#m   D 
And maybe someone's saying a prayer for the first time
        A    E       B
And that's enough a reason to keep me singing my song
         D         A
Singing my songs on the other side of the radio

Verse 2:

Crank up the volume and sing at the top of your lungs with the radio
Tune it in to some good news and laughin' along with the DJ
We're changing somebody's world from the other side of the radio
Oh and it makes my day to see that smile on your face
And in some small way I remember my place

Make One's Fortune with Fortitude

Dear Reader's and Fellow Musicians,

From time to time  I make mention of music products, music sites and affiliate programs that I personally endorse. To be specific, you've heard me talk about HearandPlay.com In fact we had a membership drive contest and I came in third place and won $250.00 I am a moderator for the site and continue to endorse Jermaine Griggs' products.

I have also supported Willie Myette and Yoke Wong's musician sites and have endorsed their products as well. So you know when LadyD mentions a specific website, you will find me actively participating in the Forum and owning various Jazz and Gospel piano resources that I think are wonderful.

Well, the time has come for me to announce some exciting news. I was invited by Nick Oba, the founder of Fortitude to join the Fortitude Online Magazine's community of writers and share what I know about my particular niche, which you all know is teaching music! If you didn't know that, please read my blog profile! In fact I write about Greek food, too. I also love to write about my opinion of who I think are great upcoming musicians for the world to take notice!

Anyways, Nick dreams big and knows the potential we all have as writers. So, I entered an article about music, of course, called The Three R's of Singing for the launch of the new online magazine called Fortitude. Take a peek and see what you think: http://fo.rtitu.de/the-three-r-s-of-singing-12
On June 7th, the day of the launch, this article was on the Front Page of the new magazine site and I had received earnings for my hard work. Oh, my gosh, I immediate let my family know of my good news and now I am sharing with you, my family of musicians.

I was so thrilled to see that a community of writers agreed with my passion for writing about music and validated my efforts. So, here is how Fortitude, the online magazine works.

1. You can earn money by submitting pieces about anything you desire, in any format you choose, including rant, fiction, humor, articles, opinions or even poetry. If the piece makes the Front Page, via a democratic review process, the user is paid $10~$100.

2. Another great incentive Fortitude offers is to refer more users. You can join their affiliate program and invite your friends to sign up. You'll find some great bonuses with their affiliate program as well.

There has been much positive feedback about Fortitude Magazine. I am indeed blessed to be writing about music and books, food and family and so much more that I am passionate about!

I'd love to hear from you after you check out the site. Won't you join me in being a part of something that is truly amazing and so very cool? http://fo.rtitu.de/1014

Thanks and Best Regards,

Sheet Music (one page) to Again I Say Rejoice
http://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtd.asp?ppn=MN0052477&mnuid=TJS3ZQZ6RJ62N728YZC7G733Z3MVBL5708KWJ3M7 
I wrote a section on rhythm for beginner students at the piano called Rhythm in Music:


Different kinds of notes are used to make rhythm in music. Some notes are short, while others are held for a longer time. Another way to put it, music has a pattern of short and long tones. The combination of these tones written in notes is called rhythm. Here are some music notes to learn.
Quarter Note = 1 count
A quarter note is all black with a stem on it either going up or down. I call it our “stepping” note because the note just steps and moves along. With 4/4 time, you would have a measure of 4 quarter notes because one quarter note gets 1 count. Remember music and math go together.

Half Note = 2 counts 

A half note is all white with a stem on it. When playing this kind of note you would pause, like coming to a yellow traffic light. You would play a half note, counting 1 & 2 &. With 4/4 time, you would have 2 half notes in a measure to play because 2 + 2 = 4. Remember music and math go together!

If you are not sure what a measure in written music is, always remember that the notes placed between bar lines is a measure. Bar lines divide music into measures. When looking at a piece of music, go to the very end of a song and there you will find a double bar line.

Repeat Dots (Repeat Sign)

The two dots at the end of the piece are a repeat sign, meaning to play the song from the beginning. Sometimes my students ask, “Oh, do I have to?” The answer is “yes” because the composer intended for that section of music to be played again! Another way to look at it is that you won’t have more pages to turn. Just play the first page again or perhaps it will be just a few lines repeated. The repeat sign is a very valuable sign indeed.

Whole Note = 4 counts
A whole note is a white note, too but it does not have a stem on it. I call it our doughnut note. Some of my students call it a “hamburger” note! When you see a whole note, you must hold the note down and count, 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &. It’s just like coming to a red light and making a full stop.

Dotted Half Note = 3 counts

A dot after a note adds half the value of the note. So, you now have 2 + 1 = 3 beats. You hold the note down and count, 1 & 2 & 3 &.

Now, the cool thing is that every type of music note has a corresponding rest. A rest sign means “don’t play” like a rest area. Sometimes it means get your hand ready in position and move up, yet still do not play a note, just rest! Examples of some rests are:

Quarter Rest
It looks like a “Z” and a quarter rest gets 1 count.

Half Rest
It looks like a black top hat. A half rest gets 2 counts or beats of silence. A half rest sits above the third line.

Whole Rest
Looks like an upside down black top hat. The whole rest hangs below the fourth line. It gets 4 counts or beats of silence.

Each measure in 4/4 time has notes and rests adding up to 4 counts.

Time Signature

The time signature is the two numbers written at the beginning of a piece. The top number tells how many beats are in each measure. The bottom number tells what kind of note gets one beat.

2 means two beats in each measure
4 means the quarter note receives one beat or count.

3 means three beats in each measure.
4 means the quarter note gets one beat.

4 means four beats in each measure
4 means the quarter note gets one beat.

Practice Directions


1. Clap and count the rhythm aloud.
2. Play and say the name of notes aloud.
3. Play and count the rhythm aloud.

A great music that I recommend for chord study that is an audio course:

I hope you enjoy playing this worshipful song. I have played it often and in many different keys depending on the voice range of  the worship leader. Get familiar with playing a song you love in all the keys. Experiment moving chords up a whole step or half step. It gets easier the more you practice. We tend to play only in the keys that are easy or the ones were familiar with. So, stretch yourself and try those unfamiliar keys. Some will want to hit the "transpose" button on their keyboard... I know! lol
All the best,
