    with me!

  2. Ronaldo Panaligan says:

    I like the invention of riffs, is it same type of notes like riffs done on
    electric guitar?

  3. Ronaldo Panaligan says:

    so it is similar to pentatonic guitar riff which is actually blues notes

  4. Anastasia Filippova says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHA it is not al Illuminati triangle, that was great! Useful and
    hilarious, thank you!

  5. Benjamin Hutchinson says:

    Wouldn’t it be better to sing the correct numbers for the scale degrees?
    That way you understand the harmonic context in theory terms for everything
    you are singing.

      +Louise Attzs Hi 🙂 The best advice I can give you is to work on using your
      ears as much as possible, learning theory is easy when explaining something
      you understand internally, it’s like learning a language in that respect.
      Learn the sounds, then the theory, otherwise it’s like trying to learn to
      write before you can speak, it’s disconnected and difficult to absorb in a
      meaningful way. David Reed has a Youtube account called “Improvise for
      Real” and also a fantastic book of the same name, that pretty much explains
      the way I hear and decipher music. You can approach music anyway that feels
      natural to you if you work on your ear enough. Just remember that music is
      born in the mind then transposed outward through the instrument, if you
      keep this mindset then music is guaranteed to naturally open up to you.
      Watch George Benson perform “this masquerade” for a clear indication of
      where music comes from, it flows through him, his guitar is irrelevant in
      the creative aspect. I hope that helps 🙂 Good luck on your musical journey!

      +PaulMckayONEvoice Hi, yeah I understand why you simplified things and
      that’s probably the wisest choice given the audience. To me it’s like two
      birds with one stone using the scale degrees. Thanks but I’m fine for
      theoretical explanation I’ve studied music for 20 years 🙂 I have such an
      ingrained system of scale degrees I find it distracting to hear the “wrong”
      numbers LOL. It was just a thought. I’m just here because my singing
      technique is dreadful and I like your channel 😀

    3. PaulMckayONEvoice says:

      Hey Benjamin, I am treating the pantatonic scale as a 5 not scale (which it
      is). I am not comparing it directly with the major scale in my explanation
      because my objective is to simplify it for commercial/general use. Inbox
      me if you need more explanation… we can also unpack the theory behind it.

    4. TroubleinZION says:

      +Benjamin Hutchinson I agree. The numbers did not agree with my
      understanding of music theory. Haha

  6. Brian Sisk says:

    Brillant! This is a very easy way to look at it. Subscribed!

  7. Tangaline Nigglet says:

    That is the the illuminati triangle,u see it said ab in
    So 1+3*ab=satans horns
    Satans horns=347^c
    Then also his mouth is…..
    So that means illuminati triangle

    Who am I kidding this shit doesn’t make sense😂😂😂😂
