ANALYSIS PLAY BY EAR II
The last lesson we covered some basic concepts in how to play a simple tune after listening to it. The key areas covered were:
SO WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
- Listen to the tune and determine how many different chords are in the song
- Determine key signature by first chord (remember this is not always the case!)
- I IV V progression
- Relative Minor key signatures and relationship with I IV V7 progression
- Same tune, different key, ie: I IV V7 chord progression in different key
In this lesson we will expand on our I IV V7 progression and have another look at the way songs are put together. We will also construct a simple set of strategies to use in determining how to play a tune by simply listening to it. To finish off, we will introduce key changes and bridges within a song and expand on these in a later lesson.
