See video

This was broadcast live on Friday 25th October 2013

This session expands on your chord knowledge by focusing on chord progressions. Ski will show how to define chords as roman numerals and how to combine major and minor chords - and how to use a 'chord device'. Ski will deconstruct 'Spectrum (Calvin Harris RMX)' by Florence & The Machine to demonstrate the chord progression and then provide the acapella to the winners to try it out themselves.

Following on from the previous lesson, we will look at constructing basic chords and arpeggios from the scales we studied. Ski will examine the chords of Deadmau5’s 'The Veldt' by deconstructing it, and then applying key signature knowledge to try out some new chords and arpeggios. The winners will download the acapella to try it out for themselves.

EMC Hangout #1: Key Signatures & Scales

See video

This was first broadcast live on Tuesday 22nd October 2013

We start with an introduction and explanation of what to expect during the next few weeks. In this lesson expert tutor Ski Oakenfull from Point Blank will teach the seven winners about key signatures and major and minor scales. The group will listen to some example tracks to determine their key and gain access to a key signature test project. Although quite rudimentary, this lesson is designed to provide a solid foundation for future masterclasses.
