David Burrows replied to Diego C's discussion Latinx Waltz in G Minor
"Hi,
You can use ii, V, I  from the key that you want to go into to transition to your major key.  So, for example, if you want to transition to D major, from g minor, play e minor (ii), A major (V)  then land on D major (I).  That is a standard way…"

"Thank you Ingo Lee,
This looks like a great resource, good stuff for me to read and get more acquainted with. I'm really enjoying learning music theory as I need it, you know? I tried learning music theory in case I needed it before, but that made…"

"Hi Harmonius, 
Thank you! I'm glad you feel that way! That's interesting, I hadn't thought of brass but I can see how that could be good. I might give that a try. Thanks, I'm gonna try to rerecord it since I now notice I was off-tempo in some parts…"

"Hi Dane, thanks so much for your comment! I'm glad to hear you think it sounds Brazilian, I really like the sound of Brazilian music. I started to check out Luiz Bonfa.
Thanks, I'm gonna look how to move it to the relative major or subdominant, even…"

Harmonius replied to Diego C's discussion Latinx Waltz in G Minor
"Very nice, Diego.
This has soul. I agree with what has already been said, and I can imagine distant-sounding brass in the background mariachi-style here and there. But I also like it very much as is and look forward to hearing what you do with it."

Dane Aubrun replied to Diego C's discussion Latinx Waltz in G Minor
"Hi, Diego C,
Well it's certainly a nice tune, perhaps a hint of Portuguese/Brazilian. If you could excuse me saying so, reminiscent of one of my favourite Brazillians: Luiz Bonfa in his earlier days.
Just my own response is that it sounds fine as a…"

Diego C replied to Harmonius's discussion Klezmer-inspired
"I hear you. I used to just try things by ear but recently I've been trying to study music theory and that has helped me shorten or sharpen my guessing game because now I feel I have some roadmaps about what things might sound well. But I still…"

"Hi Harmonius,

Yes, you're right maybe that will clear it up. It's nice to hear I'm not the only one struggling with going back to older pieces.

Thanks,

"Hi Ingo Lee,
Thanks for the feedback and the welcome. You're right, I don't have to question it as much. Thanks! Ingo Lee said:

Harmonius replied to Diego C's discussion Guitar Piece
"Hi Diego,
This has a nice feel to it. I empathize with your uncertainty as I can put a lot of time into crafting a very short bit and then lose interest before I have figured out where it's going. So I typically move on to something else hoping that…"

Ingo Lee replied to Diego C's discussion Guitar Piece
"Hi Diego, welcome to the forum! 
This piece sounds just fine the way it is, you already have harmony and an implied melody with an ABA song form that is used by many other songs. You can extend this or add parts to it or call it good and move on to…"

Diego C replied to Harmonius's discussion Klezmer-inspired
"I really like the sound of it. It reminds me a little bit of this song from this Netflix show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KjS2EgFclE. But they are both different melodies. I don't know if I'm right, but the bass notes are staying the same,…"
