A Pattern In All Things-Create


Part 4: The Finale

The previous blog posts commented on how the Circle of Fifths help you anticipate and appreciate what is happening in music, now on to our star--creation!

The most exciting reason to understand the chord patterns is it gives you the ability to create your own music. Understanding the patterns of music lays foundational skills to be able to create something new. 

There is no greater thrill than creating something out of nothing, especially knowing that this something has the potential to live forever. No personal trainer can even come close to touting those claims.

Doesn't the folk round go:

"All things must perish, Under the sky. 

Music alone shall live. 

Music alone shall live. 

Music alone shall live. Never to die."

It isn't just the immortality of music, that gives us such delight but it is the magic of music.

I used to think all music makers were magic. Their ability to connect with people without saying a word--magic.  

I really thought composers were especially magic. Even dead they never decompose. (Sorry! Bad joke.)

Magicians look like they are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or a bird of out of a handkerchief, when in reality they just know visual tricks to make it appear to be so.

Musicians box of audio tricks is really just theory lessons put into an instrument. A hit song is 1% inspiration 99% patterned based musical math.

With the Chime In music and the Circle of Fifths it becomes clear to see that music is made up of artful patterns and patterns with a twist. 

Doesn't that make listening to music, making music, and writing music easier? 


Yes, it does.

There really is a pattern in all things. 

The Chime In Circle of Fifths just helps those patterns to jump out. 

Remember: Music is created and communicates with chords!

Won't you Chime In?

Understanding the Circle of Fifths
Helps you anticipate, Appreciate,
and Eventually create music.
