22nd Weekly Homework Compo (WHC22)
So. I didn't make a video, but I have a set of information (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IdttvJSedg , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtRvGL-fJmY , http://www.thejazzpianosite.com/jazz-piano-lessons/jazz-chords/borrowed-chords/ ) and the following homework exercise proposition for next week:
Write 4 short segments (60s at most) going through 3 different chord progression with borrowed chords:
One progression should be built on the C Major Scaled borrowing from the C Melodic Minor or C Harmonic Minor scale
One progression should be from a common one (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chord_progression#Common_progressions) pick a common progression, find the root and the mode, borrow from any other you wish
One progression should be Pachelbel's Canon inspired (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachelbel%27s_Canon#Influence_on_popular_music) pick any of the progressions presented, find the root and the mode; borrow from any other as you wish
A final progression can be built freely
I would ask you to take a look at your own music, look at how you have been writing progressions, and come up with a progression with borrowed chords that sounds like something you would write. It's quite easy to borrow chords from anywhere and end up sounding like a generic fusion metal jazz band. Preserver your identity as an artist when doing this last progression.
