School of Rock – Day 13 – Collaboration and Growth – Part 3

SUMMARY

Today I wrote a baseline, had trouble with and learned about recording software. I also learned about chord progression

LEADERSHIP ACTIVITY

SMART Goal

By July 23, as part of my School of Rock team/class , we will have created a song that sounds good and sticks in the listeners head. 

Progress For Today

Today I continued trying to record a bassline with my amp but it wasn’t working. The amp didn’t always work and when it did, it sounded very crackly. I decided to create something on the piano in sound-trap instead.

LAB (THEORY PRACTICED)

  • Notes on Going from lyrics to melody
  • It is easier to start from the chord progression than the melody
  • stable notes are notes contained in the underlying chord
  • unstable notes are not
  • unstable scale degrees can smooth out jumps in melodies

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

  • Today I wrote by baseline accompaniment to the song for my leadership project. My amp didn’t work so I wrote one in sound trap instead. I also learned about chord progressions and how to write a song.
