  1. @William Nelson You’re welcome, William. I confess that this was as esoteric to me as imaginary numbers until I needed it in my theory class. Our homework was to write some progressions in major and minor keys to practice the various cadences. I would draft them out first in pencil, then enter them in Finale, and hit playback. Eewww, what’s wrong, I thought, it sounds flat in places. An hour later, lightbulb: pigeonhead, you forgot to use harmonic minor. So I’d go back and sharpen all the sevenths — can’t do it in the key signature -- that’s how it works. After that, I’d write “HM: #7” in the
  2. When composing in a minor key, the natural minor creates both harmonic and melodic problems. In the Common Practice Period, composers solved these by altering the scale. The natural minor of C is Am, and this leads to a whole step interval between the seventh and tonic (namely, G to A), which means no tension in the leading tone. They addressed this by raising the seventh by a half step (now G# to A), creating the harmonic minor scale and a dominant V. Thus A harmonic minor is A B C D E F G# A, and the chords built upon this are i ii(o) III+ iv V VI vii(o) i. But this created a new proble

  5. @Elizabeth S. Hi, Elizabeth, and welcome to the Guitar Gathering family! If you would like to know what to expect at this year's gathering, this thread about 2019 should give you a good idea, along with the itinerary (attached below). One difference in the schedule is that with NAMM on Saturday morning this year, the Student Showcase will probably be Friday afternoon. And because Trevecca won't be offering lunch service in the student center, we'll be on our own unless Steve works out a catering arrangement. Guitar Gathering 2019 Itinerary 5-27.pdf

  10. I deleted another spam post from the thread on "Creating a Practice Space..." that was posing as troubleshooting advice. It was unrelated to the topic, contained a link to a commercial site, and was the first post from the user (March 17), who was issued a warning.

  12. From the Guardian: ... Popular music’s centre of gravity has undeniably moved towards solo artists, at least when it comes to serious commercial success. This paradigm shift has been obvious for a while now (“What happened to all the bands?” asked Rostam Batmanglij after leaving Vampire Weekend in 2016. “Is it just that bands are corny now?”) and has accelerated across genres. ...
