Description

Every composer and improviser knows this feeling: you’re using the same chords over and over. You’re stuck to writing in a handful of styles and emotions because you don’t really know how to branch out. This course will break you out of that rut.
Chord Candy: Fun Size is the Udemy-exclusive starter version of the full Chord Candy course from Synthase. In it, we unlock the power of four chords: the power chord, the major triad, the minor triad, and the suspended chord. Instead of focusing on abstract music theory, we do it by finding patterns in real music, drawing examples from a wide variety of genres. After identifying these patterns, you can start to rewire them and make them your own, intuitively.
Building an intuition for harmony is notoriously difficult when it involves writing everything out on staff paper. So here’s what makes makes Chord Candy different from other courses: I’ve developed an animated visualization system called the Keyring that unifies every version of a chord into a single shape, allowing you to see how the notes in each of these chords move in realtime.
Join me to find out how quickly you can start to make music with the harmonic nuance of your favorite artists.
