For the next one in the Ubiquitous Chord Progression series...Here's a simple Andalusian cadence ( i–VII–VI–V7 ) and a straight forward i-ii°7-V7 opening/break. The bass line implies the following basic chords: A section: i-ii°7-V7 = Am - Bdim7 - E7. B section: i–VII–VI–V7 = Am - G - F - E7. But...there's wiggle room. Remember, the bass line is your road map...but side routes can work just fine. Just come back to the original path. In other words...there are no bad notes...just bad resolutions. Each section of the form repeats twice. I'm not going to count the measures for you though. That's your thang. The B section repeats three times in the form. The middle one is for your solo. So play a hook/melody over the A section. Try to keep it repeating as it's the song's home base. Play a repeating melody over the first and third repetition of the B section. Basic guidelines: No Jamming. There are jam threads elsewhere. Jam on them. This is about composition and performance of the composition. It's also not a recording competition, so just focus on the tune. There have been some entries in previous PMW threads with vocals. This is OK only if it's essential like Hocus Pocus By Focus. No words no lyrics...that's not what we're trying to do here. A melody, simply put , is a string of notes that are musically pleasing. No lyrics are necessary. Play a supporting/rhythm track. It doesn't need to be guitar. It can be piano, organ, kazoo, whatever. Write a melody for both the A and B sections. Solo in the middle B section. Have fun...experiment...and there is no rush. First one in doesn't matter. When you're comfortable with it...post it. It's not about improvisation. It's about composition. The backing Bass & Drums track: Again....this exercise exploits a well used chord progression. A little background: Andalusian Cadence Nights In White Satin. Happy Together. Stray Cat Strut. Hit The Road Jack. Runaway. Sultans Of Swing. Wild World. I Will Survive. Maneater. 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover. Like A Hurricane. Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. Hotel California is a modified Andalusian cadence/circle progression. And tons of flamenco stuff. Kinda where it came from.
