[2019-02-14] How difficult is it to be able to recognize intervals? (Relative Pitch) : Guitar

Yep. The easiest way I've found is to associate intervals with songs. For example, for me, a perfect 4th is the first 2 notes to "Here Comes the Bride" and a perfect 5th is the first 2 notes of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star."

Huh. Tried perfect ear app and could distinguish minor and major seconds with 80% accuracy since applied reasoning about rational fractions [[music]]

[2021-01-09] instead use toread tags? also need to exclude from Logseq's reach maybe or make togglable?

basically would be nice to 'delete' the node on ad-hoc basis to untangle the graph
also need some way to prevent tag inheritance for certain entries? e.g. via a property or something…


basic structure: drums + bass + chords + melody [[drill]]

This is an example of minimal techno; here the focus is on slow, subtle changes, primarily to the nature of the sounds themselves, rather than to the notes and rhythms.

harmonizing [[study]]

But combining (or harmonizing) the melody with some chords helps to fill out the texture. This is an example of a simple chord progression: a series of chords played in a particular order. In many types of music, chord progressions are used to create a sense of tension and release, by moving away from the tonic of the song and then back again.

  1-5-6-4: the most common chord progression

  A pre-chorus is a section that serves as a kind of link between a song’s verses and its choruses. In this song, each pre-chorus helps to build a sense of tension and energy that leads into the chorus. Each of the three eight-bar pre-choruses in this song has identical lyrics.
