'ello ppl

after a chat with some ppl that didn't have a musical background, the idea came up, for a global overview and guide to musical writing, and basic theorie, of chords, and notes transponation, etc...

I f ppl would like this, then it could be made I think.
Gues this can be pretty tough and big.

Perhaps a joined writing for longer term?

This would be good I think. I can cancel my current tutorial so we can start working on this. Teetow, you're in too?

Absolutely! Maybe we could co-write it? I'm not on MSN that much anymore, but I'll try to keep available.

This can be HUGE.
If you decide to write this tutorial keep the size in mind.

Thank you.

well, perhaps not in writing then, since I think knowledge is required to write, but we always need feedback of course!

And you might give us some ideas of what you would expect, or hope to be able to learn from a 'starting music tutorial'? We could use some leads at first, and maybe work from there.

If we do write this tutorial, everything I write will be based on my own experience and ideas. I've never read any theoretic stuff from people who've been studying music etc. But I do have some stuff to write.

It think this would be a great idea.
Even just what keys to write in and what notes are available. And what style of music each key would create.

Me personally I am a qualified sound engineer who has been DJing for years (mainly recording techniques eg effects). I have also tried writing and have been pretty sucessful with beats, and melodies, but I am trying to write techno(gritty hard and no melody other than bassline). but I end up focusing on the melody too much and end up with a transelike tune which i dont want. I need to divide an octave into maybe 4 or 5 keys and just use them.
But what keys do I use?

EG
I have found C, D, and D Sharp (bassline) but what other keys stay in tune with that

and also A, C, and E (bassline) but the same problem.

Anyway if anyone knows what the f*** im talking about let me know

I think that is a great idea. I had no musical background, so I can't contribute, but I can benefit from it once it is finished

It looks like this subject has been dead a while. But I strongly believe it should be revived. Music Theory is fundamental and facilitates the creation process immensely. I'd be glad to contribute by working on a few articles. I'm currently a music theory major, played the guitar for 10 years and can bungle my way through piano pieces (only because of lack of recent practice). I can even help kick it off, if you'd like. Just let me know. vajdoc@yahoo.com.

I would also like to recommend you head this up as a wikibook.

http://www.wikibooks.org

It'll allow for further collaboration on the subject. =)
