Just realized how cool the key change to the solo is in "Don't Fear the Reaper" - A minor to the chromatic mediant key of C minor using common pitches /thread
#musictheory #blueoystercult #guitar #songwriting
The song is in an Aeolian A minor but we get that G# sounding like a leading note after the fermata Am chord before the solo enters. The G# and C (from the Am) are reinterpreted as the third (Ab) and 5th of an Fm chord in the first solo arpeggio (F Ab C)
which then moves to a G7/F arpeggio (F-G-B) with the bass now staying consistent - these become iv and V[4/2] in the new key. We then get a solo in a functional C minor, where leading notes are raised.

How do we make sense of "Girl From Ipanema"? /thread

#jazz #jazztheory #musictheory #guitar
Let's look at the original Getz/Gilberto version in Db, not the fakebook version in F. Here's a faithful transcription of Gilberto's guitar part: hjgs.co.uk/wp-content/upl… . And this is the melody: drive.google.com/file/d/11gZNXD….
The A sections aren't too crazy: essentially, the progression of Db [6/9] - Eb9 - Ebm9 - D7 (or Ab flat9 when the bass enters) - Db [6/9] reduces to a I - ii - V7 - I progression with a chromatic II7 chord produced by an incomplete neighbouring note between the I and ii chords.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.

Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.

Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.
