[MUSIC] Okay guys this is our last video of the Capstone Project. And we're going to cover the last eight bars and we're also going to talk about the melody too. So far we have an A section, another A section, and a B section, I'll play that for you. Two, five, one, now repeat that again. Then I went into the four chord A minor, G minor, F major, and then another two, five, one. Then I repeated that A section, and I varied it a little bit with modal interchange chords. Started with the two, five, one. Two, five, instead of going one I went to flat three major seven. And four, three, two, one, another modal interchange, flat six, flat seven, one. Now to the bridge, minor, related minor, D minor, D minor, A minor, [INAUDIBLE] minor, D minor. [INAUDIBLE], C seven, now we go back to one and start our last A section. So let's write our measures first. Just repeat the second A section, or maybe I'll do the first A section. So you see, it's really up to you. I think I'll do the second A section. And the reason why I'm questioning myself is because I'm asking myself, do I want to end the song with a flat six, flat seven, one? because that's such a typical thing to do, and I'm wondering, do I feel like being typical right now? I guess I'll decide that when I get there. Okay, so we start with the two, five, one. F major seven, and then we do the two, five, one. Actually just a two, five, and we'll add that modal interchange chord, a flat three, A flat major seven. Then we have four B flat major, three minor, a minor seven. Then we have two minor, G minor seven. One major and I think I'll go with the flat six, flat seven, one ending. D flat, E flat and F. So this is what our whole 32 bars sound like. They're made up of diatonic chords and a few modal interchange cords, the B section goes to the related minor, and yet again you have three options for the B sections. There is the one that we use here, and there are two more that are in your support materials. And we come back to the last A section, and we end the tune there, or progression ends there. All right, here we go, one, two, three, four. [MUSIC] You'll notice I'm playing inversions of the chords sometimes too. [MUSIC] B to A section with the modal interchange chords. [MUSIC] We'll have one. [MUSIC] Four, three, two, flat six, flat seven, one. Now related minor, D minor, D minor, D minor again, A minor. D minor again, D minor. [MUSIC] C seven, that's our setup chord going back to the A section, two, five, one. [MUSIC] Modal interchange chord. [MUSIC] [INAUDIBLE] Okay, so that is the progression I just came up with. Now, we're going to create a melody. Now, when you create the melody I'd like for you to base it on the major pentatonic scale. [MUSIC] You can use other notes, but I'd like you to kind of base it on those notes, one, two, three, five and six. Can you use seven sometimes? If you'd like to, can you use the four? If you like to, but use that F major pentatonic scale as your base. When you get to B section, what you're going to do is still use the notes from the major pentatonic scale except instead of starting on the F, I started on a D. And we had D, F, G, A, C, D, which is exactly the D minor pentatonic scale, interesting? F major pentatonic scale and D minor pentatonic scale have the same notes. F major pentatonic scale, F, G, A, C, D. D minor pentatonic scale, D, F, G, A, C, D. The same exact notes just a different starting pitch and a different tonal center. Okay when you get to the B section, just change the tonal center, use the same notes. [MUSIC] All right, I'm going to just kind of play a little progression and create something on the spot. It'll be something sound singable and something simple. But I'm going to base it on the major pentatonic scale. There'll be times when I may play the E natural which is not a part of the pentatonic scale, but it is a part of the diatonic scale. And sometimes they may add a B flat in there. Okay here we go, one, two, three, four. [MUSIC] Now there had to change the melody a little bit to go with the D flat and E flat scale, or chords it is. So that's where you have kind of have to be careful before make the adjustments. We go to the bridge D minor. [MUSIC] As I mentioned, just used the major pentatonic scale and there are times I needed to make an adjustment, like when I played the modal interchange chords. And also, as I mentioned before, when I played major seven chord, sometimes maybe I added the E natural, because that's a very, very important part of the major seven chord. Other than that, I pretty much stuck with the major pentatonic scale. So that is your project. Now, when you present the project, we'd like you to record it either live or with a sequencing program. Have fun, do it in the style that you love to play in, that you love to write in. If you run into a roadblock, step away from it for a little while and then come back to it a few hours later or maybe a day later. Okay, you don't want this to stress you out. Music should be something that you enjoy doing. Get to work and I look forward to hearing many of your projects.
