Hi Leo
A few 'iffy' chords got in the way of some nice playing here matey, phrasing was good too, and I thought the 'expression ' was fine for the voices you used.
Cheers
Spike

Yes, Leo this has a nice feel to it. Stately.. The strings came in very nicely. and you brought the arrangement back down very smoothly. I agree with Spike about iffy chords.

When I want to work on a song, if it's a cover I go to "YouTube". I watch and download the audio of any versions there I think are good. Load them into a sequencer, and play along with them.

You can then do a 'google' something like "Chords to Yesterday". You will come up with links to at least a few sights..

Especially if it's a popular song, you'll find the right chords. Sometimes they are off, but between these two methods you can find what you need.

Also if you search around on the internet you can find some MIDI websites. You might find a midi file that will help you figure out the chords.

There's also a program called 'amazing slow downer'. It can drastically slow down the tempo of an audio file, while retaining the correct pitch.. This is a great tool for learning songs, or figuring out chords. I don't have the greatest ear myself, but find the bass note first, then add the fifth, by then you can hear if it's a major or minor.. The four note chords get a bit harder, cause a passing note or a full orchestration, can color the chord to your ear.

Another way to do it, is load an mp3 or audio file of the song you want to do into a sequencer and play along with it. Add parts, and then pull the volume of the original down, it's then pretty easy to see where you go wrong. Part of the mystic of music is interpretation. Even if you choose a wrong chord, you can enhance it with a melodic or harmony change

I use Logic Pro. It's very good - but I've been using it a long time.. (17 years). I'm not sure how I would approach learning it now (or actually any DAW). I think there is also a Logic Express, which is the same but stripped down. The advantage of Logic is Apple owns it, so they will keep it up to date.

There is also Cubase, and Digital Performer, which are good also. Yamaha owns Steinberg, (which makes Cubase), so that's an advantage there.

Actually however, if we can figure out how to use all the features in the Tyros, learning a DAW, is not really any harder.

Hello Leo,

A pleasing listen. I liked the strings along with the piano - a nice touch. A few harmonic (chord) issues, but other than that, I liked it!

Thanks for the music,
Dan


Wait! What key is it in? Aww man...

Hi Leo.

Good effort, the style and piano were the perfect choice, but as Spike said, just a few chords out of wack along the way.

Try Guitar Tabs, Guitar Chords and Lyrics - Chordie , its a good site , and has a nice "transpose " feature, that you can alter the chord sequences to different keys .

Regards
Gordon
