Honestly, I’m a bit perplexed by the number of threads you’ve created outside of googling simply any youtube video to give yourself an idea of what notes are and how they work. I understand this is a forum and people discuss the nature of things they’ve experienced and what they like or don’t like but seriously…
DISCLAIMER - You’re asking the same question in different wordings, repeatedly. You’re not even attempting to bring it up in conversation, you’re bringing it up in your own context. Stop. Unless you’re a bot, a ( a poor one in my opinion)music reporter, or just completely oblivious to the world of google, repeatedly asking the same question, and starting new threads in the process is annoying to the community involved.
However, I’ll try to answer the fucking question. Pardon the french.
I’m a piano/keys player. I’ll admit I learned certain things as I went along but I have never been classically trained or really strived to be anything but what I am. Someone that uses keys to play out much of what I make. Timings, edits to that, etc…I will play on but it came out of my head.
I’ve also attempted chords and also found myself “cheating” on them in different places because simply put a chord is minimally 3 notes played together. Well, how about achieving interesting combinations with only 2. You play the root or the chord and the 7th note up, or even the root and either the 3rd or 4th. Holy shit, you’ve just made music, and your fingerings don’t have to fully represent an actual chord. But it represents the basic level or understanding.
I don’t play complex chords. My production method doesn’t require it currently and I haven’t really gone that route in my study of chords. Just hasn’t happened.
The goal of music writing, producing, isn’t to copy cat someone. It’s to sound like yourself. But to be fair the formula has already happened. If you want to be an individual, you learn to work inside of those constraints. “Chords”, in my opinion even at 2 notes, layered with other elements can take you a lot of places. Especially if you consider electronic music is basically written. It isn’t. But it also might not be all written in one phase.
Simple chords are important. Complex chords are also important. Shit, 2 notes used in a minor and major way, can be important. At a minimal level, at the basic level, 1 note to the next sounding good is important.
If you haven’t learned to write music, even at a basic level, asking people that have is simply redundant. I was someone that started with drum pads. Bought a key-ish controller and then keyboards there after.
I’ll also add, if I were an admin here, I’d ban your account for simply re-asking the same question over and over. I’m now involved answering your question when other people already have, in different ways.
Your name is Young Capone…Just by eyeballing the idea of your name, you’re a hip hop beat writer. When to be honest, Google resolves a lot of issues.
