Updated Art - Music : Added “Scales and Chords … in all keys”

Blues or gypsy? Your pick!

A lot of musicians only learn to play in one musical style with one particular scale pattern. Maybe they’ll add a Minor scale instead of a Major scale to change the tone of the song a little bit.

When you write a book or a screenplay, you write different characters every time. A musical piece with a particular set of scales and chords represents one such character which may go through a whole range of emotions: fear, anger, love, hate. The character may be laid back, forward, aggressive, resigned, and so forth. This can all be handled within that same set of scales.

What causes these emotions changes by changing different scales. For daily struggles kind of music? I’d typically pick Blues, but if you want to add some mystery, you should really try some of the gypsy-scales as well.

And while you’re at it, why not vary the rhythm? Don’t limit yourself. Express yourself instead.
