Hey @MikeGeorge ,

Thanks a ton for all of your content. I can feel myself making sense of things I’ve been trying to grasp for a long time adding bits and pieces I found on the internet. I started electronic music on a DAW and thought music theory was too complex so I spent years trying things out randomly and sometimes discovering a theory concept on the way. I recently discovered you approach to theory and it really clicked for me. I can feel my musical confidence rising using ColorMusic and I start to have a glimpse at the freedom I could have following your method. This feels truly amazing and immensely motivating!:)

I’m currently trying to analyse songs I love through your method. I’ve looked around your website trying to find a PDF that would gather all the diagrams related to their specific keys and scales. It might not exist (yet). I’ve made a draft of it to show you what I mean

The example is a mesh of different scales because I couldn’t find all the diagrams for a particular key of a particular scale. I’ve added a polygon that links the notes together in the circular scales because the shape really helps me visualise and remember things more easily.

My dream would be to have this kind of PDF that would contain all the 56 scales you show under “Scales > Formula Tables > Key of C” for each 12 notes.

I guess this is a fair bit of work but I feel it would be so helpful for analysing songs and creating them!:)

Thanks again for your work.

All the best!

No Open Hour Tomorrow (7/13)

Hello! No Open Hour this Saturday -- with Lesson 16 rolling out in the coming weeks, I'm working on the next video. (!) I'll see you next week.

Hey thanks to your course I’ve learned so much about music theory, will you go into more detail about technique? There’s so much to do with the guitar I’ve seen some chords where they mute certain strings to give an interesting sound and then hammer on and hammer off stuff like that, can you give a sort a guide/ illustration showing different ways/technique on the guitar?

293 | Master Songs with the Circle of Fifths

The Circle of Fifths is your most powerful tool as a songwriter. With it, you can quickly make sense of chord progressions -- to see why a song sounds so good. Here, we look at a variety of tunes by different artists to learn how they composed their hits. It's like X-ray vision into the minds of these musicians....

Live stream:

Here are the diagrams to go through the examples yourself, identifying the tonic and chords in each song. (Illustrations with the numerals filled in are at the end.)

Cheers.
