Music Theory/Songwriting Tutorial?
May 28th, 2008, 05:37
Hi Martin (and Steve and everybody else). Thanks again for all of your great tutorial videos! I think most people are visual learners, and your videos make learning these programs fun and enlightening. It's a vast difference from reading a 500-pg. manual. Your videos are great for brushing up my computer technique, but I've been hoping to see a songwriting tutorial to help us all out with our technical music knowledge. I know a lot of the popular music out these days (pop/rock, electronic, hip-hop) are pretty basic, but it never hurts to pick up a better understanding of complex chords and progressions. I know it seems like a hard topic to approach and fully cover, and isn't really related with any Mac programs, but I think it would be really helpful. The quality of tutorials I've purchased from MacProVideo are much better than other video tutorials I've seen, and I think you guys would do a much better job of explaining music theory and songwriting concepts than other tutorials have attempted to do. I love the perspective you guys take on approaching different topics, and the little bits of insight you guys give make a huge difference towards learning complicated concepts. If you guys don't have plans to add these tutorials, then I'd appreciate it if you could point me to any books or other resources you've found helpful.
