"Gabriel Kovalov - Thanks for the support. I have 110 compositions now, which is quite a lot for about 60 weeks. I am looking forward to the 4 Element Competition to hear what others are doing and to get some thoughtful feedback."

"Thank you for suggesting your paper on harmony. I had to go to Wikipedia to figure out how the inversion numbers work in classical notation (it still is clumsy for me - like a language I can barely parse out). You are right - popular chord notation…"

"Had to share this with you - "Devilish" is my latest and I think I am shaping it better. Your comments are appreciated. 




I am trying out various, stable chord progressions, and striving not to be too repetitive (which is easy to do with notation…"

"You have had the same experience that I had; I was lost until I started using a professional music notation program. In my case it was Finale. "

"I took part of a course called "Write Like Mozart," where the classical chord notation was (sort of) explained. I get I ii iii IV V vi and viio, more or less. But the inversions(?) numbers don't make much sense. Yet. So for now, I use what I know.…"

"I like your melodic style. It will take a few years of studying music (theory) and experience, but it will get better and more interesting. Don't care much for the popular chord notation though. It doesn't give you a clear idea about the harmony.

  • Hi Dave

    Welcome to the forum.

    Thought "good will" had a nice feel to it. Also enjoyed your Methodist song. Is that your operatic voice.

    Cheers Mike L
