The first truly eclectic album by the Beatles.
Karen Cuneo Ramirez is one of my favorite person when it comes to practical music theory http: ChuckO You seem to know theory but it seems odd that you are looking at actual chords and their frequency and not the chords relationship to the scale which would seem to me to be more relevant.
Although it would be interesting if hit songs in the key of C were prevalent especially if the singers tended to sing in a particular range.
ChuckO By range I mean octave. ChuckO And I meant the root chord to a minor 6 chord not root to minor 4 chord. This is why I transposed all the songs to the key of C. I do disagree about common understanding of Roman Numerals for chords though. For all jazz, blues, rock and folk players and for all composers Roman numerals for chord are standard.
ChuckO True, as a songwriter I would also be more interested in writing a song that lasts. We still listen to The Beatles because they wrote great chord changes. That is to say that focusing only on harmony in an attempt to decode what makes for good music is akin to saying that what most accounts for great literature is the frequency of letters.
Letters in words have no inherent meaning unto themselves; words themselves will be largely meaningless without the context of a sentence. Analyzing frequency of letters would be a surface analysis at best.
Harmonic structure is not the surface of a piece of music; it creates an underlying backbone for the melodic and rhythmic elements to work from. It is structural, not decorative. I have no qualms using this as a starting point for deeper analysis, and am excited to see this series continue.
Perhaps a better comparison would be between harmonic progression and gramatical structure. Joshua Jones Goovitude, it is true that a lot of guitar and piano players, when composing, find a chord harmonic progression that they like and then locate a melody within that structure.
However, historically, melody has been the king of music composition. You can rearrange the chords of a song but keep the melody and everyone will still recognize the song.
But if you keep the chords and change the melody, the original song would be unidentifiable. But of course chord progressions are, as you say, very important. Could you be a bit more specific about your choices of songs to study? The database entries small individual chord progression so each is analyzed with respect to the key it is currently using.
Thanks for sharing your findings! Frank Yes, I think you should do an analysis relative to the key, e. Compare your results to the circle of fifths and the chords for each key. Apple use the first seven chords in the key and add an eighth which is interesting.
Is your data base available? Do you use the Chord Pro format? If not, what format do you use? If you want to make changes, go right ahead! This will essentially tell us which songs have the same melodies.Jordan Raskopoulos, a comedian, Benny Davis, a classically trained musician and Lee Naimo came together to form the group in Since that time they’ve been wowing audiences across the world with with their mixture of quirky original songs, catchy pop-parodies and hilarious banter.
