    Any interest?: a tutorial on Filter House/French House /Disco chords

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    I'm considering writing an article/tutorial on making chords and chord progressions like those common in Filter/French House and Disco (e.g. the chord's in Daft Punk's "Voyager" and "One More Time" [both the main riff and the e-piano chords in the breakdown], or like those in just about every Fred Falke song). The article will not be a tutorial in that it builds a chord progression step-by-step, but instead it will describe how to make your own unique chord progressions in this style.

    The article would first explain some *basic* music theory like the major scale, a quick explanation of modes, etc... It will then get into some chord theory, chord voicings, and common chord progressions. It will also explain different ways to come up with great chord progressions, including working melody into progressions, how different voicings, inversions and extensions can completely change the sound of a chords and chord progressions, how to make progressions sound smooth, how to add tension and drama, adding non-diatonic chords, chord leading, etc...

    The entire thing will be written from the "ground level," meaning that I won't assume that the reader has any knowledge of music theory or piano/keyboard.

    This will be a substantial amount of work for me so, since I'll be giving it out for free, I want to make sure that there's some interest out there first

    No need to ask if there's interest, just do it. I'm sure a lot of the members here would like that.

    I'd love it, I think I have lots of different sounds but I can never make a good disco song
