    Hey everyone welcome Kinston Shivers to the site!

    • Hey Kinston!

Lots of music tips, theory and practical sharing of clips, practices, and testimonies of achievement, support and encouragement to one another that inspires us to good…

    1. Great job on getting all your keys down.
    2. You have to start thinking in “context”, which means listening for what chords come next after the “1” or ‘4″ chord.

    That’s why you must always mentally “sing” the major scale in your head when analyzing a song to see what chord we are dealing with.

    What we are looking to see if the 4th scale degree…

    • Vaughn, thanks so much for the response! I really appreciate it. I tried the foot pedal technique you suggest last night during practice, You’re rignt; it hurts, but not as much as reading the profanity you use to describe it. God doesn’t want you to curse; Not only does the scripture declare that it brings curses upon your life, but there are…

    1. I personally don’t use organ presets at all, reason being that they an sometimes differ from organ to organ. It’s just my preference.

    2. Major 6 chord usually can have a 9th as it’s tension. Chord name would be I(6/9)

      Listen to what Tony said Michael!
      • Sounds good man! What are you producing in…Logic?, ProTools?

            • Thanks Vaughn, I’m using Studio One 4. I switched over from FL Studio about a year ago. Funny, I was a Fruity loops user since 2007, but FL Studio can be a web complicated. You may already know this but, Studio One is a Hybrid DAW, it combines many of the same features that are similar in Protools, Logic, Ableton and Cubase. Ever since I started…

            • Hi Vaughan,

              I am so lost (ironically) about how to use .music technology, recording and related software tools. It would be awesome to have a video session or two on this. Music technology basics. I spend so much of my professional life deep in technology matters, but om a commercial and professional level. Somehow, I never found the time…

              • Hi Michael, I know you did not ask me this, but I thought it would be okay to share this with you. You can learn some more about Music Technology for free @ edx.org they have a course named (Music Technology Foundations from Adeliade University in Australia), this course has some very good coverage about the history and what drives music…

                • WOW Bro. Tony! This is awesome instruction and knowledge sharing!

                  Truly appreciated. I will have to schedule time to get up to speed through those channels and resources you mentioned.

                  #LovingGUAcademy interaction and mutual support among us as learners.

                    • Glad to help out my friend! This has been a long road to learn what I’ve learned so far, but it’s been a fun one, and I’m still travelling on that road. Good to make friends along the way. I wish you all much success.

                          • Hi. Pardon my ignorance, but I am such a newbie and I am really unclear with how to practise. I am trying to use the general practice plan you recommended. I am able to pracise for 60 mins a day. Please break the plan down further, for me. For instance, I do not understand stage 2 of the plan, where you advise us to ‘transcribe’ a chord…

                          Hi Michael,

                          Have you looked at the Tensions worksheet in Module 1A?

                          It has various ideas and applications of 7th chords etc…

                            That’s the way to do it!
                            • What i’m hearing is that you view reharming as ONE chord, when you should string 2 to 3 chords together to make a progression out of it.

                              That’s why melody is so important, because you won’t have to “stay” on the one crazy chord. Because when you do stay on it it sounds out of place.

                              The key to reharming is movement and duration of how long you…

                              • Thx for your input, VB. I have been thinking about it, and I have decided to revise my reharm strategy based on the information you gave in MSR9. Basically, any chord that I play that is not diatonic to the key will sound like a reharm, so I am going to adopt the chord suggestions on the tension worksheet. For example, instead of playing a minor…
