Section 1 Summary
Okay. Last thing on this first chunk is I want to talk really quick about kind of a summary of what we've learned in this first part. Which is this If you're writing, if you're creating stuff here and the piano roll editor, remember this one concept this can kind of summarize everything in a very kind of Broadway. If if you're just blindly adding notes, add on Lee White notes If you if you do on Lee White notes, you're going to be pretty safe. You're not gonna make extremely interesting music that way, but it'll be pretty safe. The odds of something something really terrible are pretty low, right, because you're writing all in the key of C major. If you stick toe on Lee White notes. So white notes safe. If you start adding in black notes and you don't know what you're doing, then you have the chance of making something sound. Really. Ah, the word we would use is dissonant, which is also to say kind of ugly. So when you start combining white notes and black notes is when things get dang...
erous, Okay, so stick to only white notes and you'll be safe. Uh, stick toe Onley. Black notes, actually, and you'll be safe as well. Um, you can do that. You can write in Onley black notes, and it'll sound pretty good. Um, combining white notes and black notes is where things get tricky. Um, but it's also where interesting music it's made. If you look at any piece of music that you enjoy, listening to the odds that it Onley has white notes are is pretty low. If it's interesting music, it probably combines white notes and black notes in some kind of interesting way. So, uh, basically what the rest of this class, what we're gonna be talking about is how to incorporate black notes to make more interesting, uh, music, right? So we have, Ah, the white notes just make everything sound just fine, just fine and kind of boring. But we want things to sound more interesting, So we need to combine and learn how to combine the black notes into our harmonies to make them more lively and much more cool. So keep in mind that key concept just white notes, you're gonna be pretty safe, just black notes, pretty safe. You combine them. You kind of got to know what you're doing. So moving on, we're gonna be talking about ways of combining the black notes to, uh, make really interesting music. Good up next, Uh, moving into the next section, we're going to talk about more intervals. Remember in the very first video I was talking about, Ah, we learned our first interval, which was an octave. So we're gonna focus on a couple more intervals now, and ah, some of them are going to introduce some of those black notes. So, um, this is how we we get comfortable. Combining them is by looking at interval. So off we go into part two.
