[MUSIC] Hi guys, welcome to the Capstone Project. This project will be 32 bars long and the form will be A, A, B, A. Each section will have eight bars. The chords in the first A section, and of course there's eight bars, will all be diatonic. You can come up with your own progression or you can use progressions from our list of popular progressions that we covered in developing your musicianship two and three. Those progressions are the following. The first one was, one major [SOUND] to four [SOUND] to five [SOUND] to one [SOUND]. They might even be triads or seventh chord. And the key F, of course that is F major [SOUND], B flat major [SOUND], C dominant seven or C triad [SOUND], back to one [SOUND]. The second progression is one to six minor to one. One [SOUND], six minor [SOUND], back to one [SOUND]. The third progression is four, five, six minor in the key of F, the four is B flat [SOUND], five [SOUND], six minor [SOUND]. They could either be seventh chords or triads. The fourth progression is four, three, two, in the key of F, that's B flat major [SOUND], A minor [SOUND], G minor [SOUND], and F major [SOUND]. The fifth progression is two, five, one, minor two, dominant five, major one. In the key of F that will be G minor [SOUND], to C seven [SOUND], and here I have retention nine [SOUND], to one major [SOUND]. The last progression includes a couple modal interchange chords. What is modal interchange? You borrow a chord from a parallel tonality. We're in the key of F so we're going to borrow one from F minor. And the three course that I chose were flat six, in the key of F flat six is D flat [SOUND], flat seven [SOUND], E flat [SOUND], one [SOUND], F [SOUND]. Those are the six popular progressions that you may use. As I mentioned before, you can come up with your own. So, first thing we want to do is we want to get some manuscript paper and we want to mark out eight bars. Make our measures line down the middle. Then we divide that. Divide this up. We have eight measures here. This is our first A section. We know that all the chords in the section will be diatomic. I'm going to start with the two, five, one progression cause I like that. So I have G minor seven for two beats and then C seven for two beats and then F major seven. For four beats. So I have this sound. [SOUND] And if I wanted to invert those chords, I could do something like this. [SOUND] So instead of playing a flat seven on the bottom, I could maybe put the flat seven on top. [SOUND] I could do that too. [SOUND] Any kind of version I want. But we know we're doing G minor seven [SOUND], C seven with retention [SOUND], nine [SOUND], F major [SOUND]. That's my first two bars. [MUSIC] And let me say again, feel free to write in any style that you like. It can be jazz, it can be pop, it can be rock, it can be reggae, any style you'd like. Whatever you're feeling at the moment. Okay, so we have two [SOUND], five [SOUND], one [SOUND], for the first two bars. I like that sound, so I'm going to repeat it. Do the same thing for bars three and four. G minor seven, two beats, C seven for two beats, F major seven. And as you see my handwriting's not exactly the best, so don't feel like you have to be the neatest writer in the world. Okay, as long it's legible. So those are first four bars, they're complete. Now what I want to do is I want to use another progression here. I want to go four, three, two, one. So we have the B flat major for two beats, A minor seven for two beats, G minor seven, F major seven. So, so far I have. [MUSIC] One, two, three, then I repeat that. [MUSIC] Then I go to the four chord. [MUSIC] B minor [SOUND], F Major [SOUND]. Then I'm thinking just going to go back to the 251 again, two, five, one. Nice simple solid progression. [MUSIC] Two, [SOUND], five, [SOUND] one [SOUND]. Two [SOUND], five [SOUND], one [SOUND]. I'm going to go four, three, two, one. Four [SOUND], three [SOUND], two [SOUND], one [SOUND]. Back to the two [SOUND], five [SOUND], one [SOUND]. I'll play it again, maybe a different style. [SOUND] Five [SOUND], one. [MUSIC] B flat [SOUND], A minor [SOUND], G minor [SOUND], F major [SOUND]. And then another two [SOUND], five [SOUND], one [SOUND]. Maybe as a ballad. [MUSIC] Four, three. [SOUND] Two, one. [MUSIC] Okay, that is the progression for my first A section. Now I want you to try one, and when you do your A section, remember any diatonic chords are available to you. You may or may not want to use some of the popular progressions. It's totally up to you. Good luck, guys.
