mp201. Understand Music Theory: Music piano theory is the language in which musicians communicate with each other and their fans. Trying to connect with your listeners is an important thing to do. If you have a firm grasp on music theory, basic composition and arranging techniques you will be better off in composing songs that you will be better able to share with the world and connect with your fans. Never stop learning as a composer. So to nutshell this point, “Educate Thyself.”

2. Form: This is also known as “style” or “genre.” Figure out which form you like best. It can be Pop, Classical, New Age, Blues, Jazz, Country, etc.. Do a mixture if you’d like. For me personally I’ve chosen to perform my songs in a Contemporary Pop/ New Age form just because that’s the type that appeals to me the most. If you don’t know which form you like, make sure to spend some time listening to all forms to see which one perks your interest.

3. Trust in Your Taste: To quote a friend of mine Dr. Paul, “Do what you love

How to Find Free Piano Sheet Music

mp18Let’s face it… finding musical piano sheets can be a drag. We are fortunate to live in an age where we have access to virtually millions of sources of information, right at our fingertips. Ahh yes, the Internet. All you have to do is go to your favorite search engine, type in the title and composer of your piece, press “Search,” and voila! Results in less than a second.

Now, finding some specific pieces can be harder than others. And unfortunately, it’s not always going to be free either. Before the Internet, people had to actually go to a music store and BUY all their sheet music! Today, we don’t even have to leave our home to get free sheets, and we can print them in just minutes to our home printers. How convenient!

Before the Internet, it was difficult to find free resources. You basically had to know someone who already had those pieces, so you could borrow or photocopy those sheets. Today, there are many options to find sheet music… absolutely free of charge.

Take Advantage of Search Engines

This is the most basic way to


Major Piano Scales

mp17Before learning the major scales or any scales for that matter, it’s important that you have a basic understanding of what “half steps” and “whole steps” are. I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of simplicity. So, simply put, whole steps SKIP a key and half step DON’T. For example, if you started on C and went to D, that would be a Whole Step because you skipped a key (C# / Db). Now if you started on C and went to the black key C# / Db that would be a half step because you DIDN’T skip and keys. So, again, Whole Steps= Skip a key. Half Steps= No Key Skip.

Now it’s your turn. If you start on E and go to F…is that a whole step or a half step? If you said half step then you nailed it. Why is a half step? Well you know that there was no note that was skipped! Well done.

Now that you know how to find a whole and half step, you can now play a major scale. The formula for any


Dancing With Songs From Ten Stars

mp161For once, the problem was not my math deficiency. There really are just eleven years between 2005 and 2016.

The situation occurred when my daughter mentioned that I might want to watch Dancing With The Stars for the first time in my life this year. One of my favorite celebrities, who I am sure she thought had been a figment of my imagination, was scheduled to participate.

She said that Tommy Chong was one of the participants slated for the upcoming season, which did surprise me. I could not envision one half of the comedy duo I worshipped in my youth taking the stage on a show with such a format.

What surprised me even more, though, was when my daughter mentioned that Chong would be on season 23 of the show. I could not believe Dancing With The Stars had been on the air since before the turn of the century.

A quick check of Google proved me right, for the series actually started in 2005. However, my daughter was also right, in that the upcoming version of Dancing With The Stars was certainly being referred to

How Directional Picking Makes Playing Guitar Fast Much Easier

Posted by: | Posted on: May 13, 2016
Read More ...

mp14Using efficient picking technique is the key to making fast guitar playing feel easy. Directional picking removes a lot of the struggle to play guitar fast. How? The picking motions used with this technique are smaller and quicker – giving you more speed with less effort.

Main Question: “Tom Hess, doesn’t directional picking only work if I am using 3-note-per-string scales? What about scales that only use 2 notes on a string… 4 notes, etc.?”

Answer: Directional picking technique will work in all cases. The main principle of directional picking is to use the shortest route from one note to the next. Occasionally this means using alternate picking. Sometimes, this means to only use sweep picking and NOT use alternate picking. By combining both mechanics together, you will achieve the fastest speed possible with the least amount of effort.

The core principle of strict alternate picking is to alternate pick regardless of the context… even if it means picking in a very inefficient manner. This causes you to put out MORE effort to achieve less speed.

To master directional picking, you need to integrate sweep picking and alternate

Musical Impact on Culture

mp12I love music. There is so much beauty and culture to be found in varying genres of music. Of course, we all have different tastes. I personally am quite partial to what is commonly known as “Indie” music. Artists like Lighthouse and the Whaler, Young the Giant, and Chet Faker dominate a large portion of my car time. I have friends who are more partial to country music, favoring relatable lyrics and catchy melodies. My own brother enjoys the incredibly rhythmic properties of rap and hip-hop. Even within these categories, there are thousands of sub-categories with tens of thousands of artists all with varying degrees of fandom. These fans swear by their taste in music and often belittle those who like anything else. Why is that?

I had a friend in high school who grew up in a very musical family. His mother and sister are both very talented singers and his father composed and recorded music for years. He played in concert band for much of his schooling and is an insanely good drummer. He has a rich background in music, but would often

Traveling Through the Radio For a Horse With a Name

mp10A local radio station that plays oldies served up a three spin by the group America, a logical choice given that it was Independence Day. Little did I know that I was very soon to hear one of those three songs just a few hours later, only it was to be on the television instead of the radio.

I had just settled into enjoying a rerun of The Simpsons, an episode called “The Haw-Hawed Couple.” At the point in the show when Marge and her husband are having an argument, Homer turns the radio on so that the kids will not hear them.

The song that comes on is “A Horse with No Name,” one of the trio of tunes by America I had heard on the radio earlier that day. I halfway expected Homer to make a reference to the song, perhaps make a crack about its not having a name. No comment was forthcoming from the father of Bart, Lisa and Maggie, but the incident did leave me guessing at what the horse’s name probably was in real life.

mp9Like many of you out there I grew up in the 80’s, a child of the Reagan years, trickle down economics preppie movie villains, and pop culture ephemera. We weren’t poor by any stretch of the imagination, but we definitely weren’t what you would consider well off. I came of age in a predominantly black working class neighborhood where it wasn’t uncommon to hear gunshots ringing out in the evening alongside the sounds of children playing. The 1980’s, for those of you to young to remember, were a time of great change and advances in technology. We didn’t quite have cellphones down yet and the video game industry was just ramping up. Home recording of movies had just become a thing and much like the music industry reacted to the advent of the cassette tape recorder, the movie industry freaked out a bit. I remember my father buying our first VCR and I can still vividly recall the day he brought home The Empire Strikes Back on VHS. But the one thing that always brought us together as a family was our collective love

Songs That Have The Single Word Title of Hollywood

mp6Obviously aspiring actors would be drawn to Hollywood, where lies their best chance of getting in films or on television. For some reason, that city has been the focus of a lot of songwriters as well.

Pop-rocker Ryan Adams scored with s song called “Good Night, Hollywood Boulevard” from his Gold album in 2001. Two and a half decades prior to that, Piano Man Billy Joel charted with “Say Goodbye To Hollywood” from his Turnstiles album.

Many songs about the city of stars are simply titled, “Hollywood” as if that town needed no adjectives or modifiers for recognition. Here are ten bands with tunes using just that city in their one-word title of “Hollywood.”

The eighties rock band dedicate this ode from Hang On For Your Life to a girl who “takes advantage of her long blond hair” before the slow piano bursts into an electric onslaught when “she sells herself to the producer’s couch.”

The Roots of Funky

mp5The Funky guitar is one of the things that I like to play, very much.

This style is very dynamic and gives that extra spice to already solid drum grooves (and basslines). Since the late 40s the rhythmic guitar styles evolved in many different ways, one of them being the Rhythm and Blues style, that, mixed with Soul, Blues and a little bit of Jazz, gave the grounds for Funky Music.

When we say Funky the first Artist who comes to mind is James Brown.

This man, with the musical help of Jimmy Nolen (who also started in the late 40s and had already played with the innovator Johnny Otis) put “Funky music” on the map, as one of the most important music genres since the late 60s to present day..

James Brown had another great guitarist, Phelps “Catfish” Collins- who, with his brother “Bootsy” -incredible bass player- contributed to many, important songs (Sex Machine being the most famous one-and Superbad the one with the most amazing, nervous, dynamic and full of positive vibes-rhytmic arrangements )-

mp3Learning and playing music by ear: Magic, right? No, not really. Moreover, in the jazz and pop genres where melodies, arrangements, and styles are not notated, it’s an essential skill.

Here’s a story for you accomplished classical pianists. Have you ever had the experience of going to a party, and someone asks you to sit down a play a piece on the piano? Knowing that you will dazzle everyone with your rendition of Chopin’s Fantasie Impromptu in C# minor, you play the most stunning performance you have ever given. After a beautiful and tranquil finish, you bask in the thundering applause, the hero of the moment.

Then someone says “Hey, it’s my birthday today! Can you play Happy Birthday?”

You stammer and stutter, poke around at a few keys on the piano, and a bit embarrassed, you manage to mumble the words “No, sorry, I don’t know that one.”

Just then, one of the people at the party whom you know to be a marginally capable pianist approaches and bumps you off the piano bench. And with a casual ‘I can probably play that’, they sit down and

mp2The graceful flourishes of a well-played piano masterpiece are sounds that many people would love to create. From trained professionals to child prodigies, a brilliantly played piano can steal the show. But great lessons are costly and involve scheduling time away from your busy life. So how do you learn how to play the piano or deepen your knowledge of the instrument?

Piano workbooks can provide a solid foundation in theory, an effective practice routine, and piano classics in one package. If you don’t have the time or money for lessons, consider buying a few piano workbooks.

The obvious advantages of piano workbooks are the ability to set your own pace and practice at your convenience. Just sit down at the bench after dinner, crack open the book, and hear your playing improve.

The only downside is that you must develop self-motivation to flourish when studying from piano workbooks. Like any great discipline, you must develop some kind of regimen to progress. With a teacher, you’ll always have someone keeping track of how well you’re doing. By studying from a workbook, you’ll have to keep an eye
