For some people, they think it is an impossible task to compose a tune. People are scared of free play. Free play is fun as you play as your heart and ears lead you.
There is a method to help you compose simple tunes.
To compose any songs, you need to think in Chord Progression.
It is the Chord progression that makes up a song.
A song is made up of musical phrases in the form of chord progression.
In the Diagram below, you see 4 lines of musical phrases:
- Chord I IV V I
- I repeat that chord progression 3X
- In the final line, I changed it to IV V V I for the ending.
This is the simplest form chord progression that makes up a song.
Even using I IV V Chords, the music sounds quite nice.
On the left hand, I play these chords!
On the right hand, I create new melodic music by choosing tones that harmonize with the Chords.
This is how you put a beautiful piece of music together.
In the audio, you hear a simple tune made up of I IV V chord progression.
Try it on the piano and see what you come up with.
