AS homework for Tuesday 10th Jan 2012

Following on from the Tuesday’s Arranging lesson please ensure that by Tuesday 10th Jan you have entered all the following parts into your arranging Logic Project:

  • full melody line
  • basic drum groove (this can be fully developed later)
  • reharmonised chord sequence for verse and chorus. This means NOT just using the same chords as the original but using new chord progressions which still fit with the melody. The documents you downloaded include a pdf with potential alternative chords to experiment with.

Please also make sure you have thoroughly read and absorbed the 1980s listening blog post as we will have a short test based on music from this decade at the beginning of the lesson on Tuesday (10.1.12). The important thing is to do lots of careful listening, you need to be identify styles and describe their musical and production aspects.
