Melodies are magical. They’re what we remember and love most about the music. And, they are the foundation of every kind of music from ancient Gregorian Chant to Hip Hop.
In this entertaining tutorial by composer Gregg Fine, you’ll learn how melodies are constructed and discover all the parameters of melody making beginning with notes and scales. Next you’ll see how major and minor scales are constructed with their unique patterns of whole- and half-steps. From there Professor Fine demystifies accidentals: those odd little symbols that live alongside musical notes on the page. After that there’s a section where you’ll get into musical intervals: those vibrating building blocks of melody and harmony! Then Gregg modulates it up a key or two by focusing on some exotic scales like Pentatonic, Blues, Octatonic and Augmented.
Ever hear of these: Dorian, Lydian, Aeolian and Phrygian? These are some of the mystical musical modes! You’ll explore all 7 modes derived from the scale and learn how they are constructed and how they can add another layer of color to you songwriting palette!
So if you’re new to composing or just want to make your current songs more melodic, this tutorial on Melody will get you humming right along! And, keep a lookout for the rest of the Music Theory series on Harmony, Rhythm and Song Form. Together they teach you everything you need to know about the fundamentals of music theory and songwriting!

Chord progressions in music are a lot like the canvas an artists paints on - a multi-purpose canvas, that is. That's because a songwriter can give his or her song a totally different feeling just by altering a few chords under its melody and take the listener on a completely new journey.
In this in-depth course about building chord progressions, Gregg Fine takes you on a harmonic voyage and shows you, step by step, how chord progressions are created and how they can evolve. You learn how to build progressions using techniques such as chromatic passing chords, borrowed harmonies, chords with added tones, and so on. Your ear gets a workout with musical examples that Gregg has created especially for the course. As you progress through this harmonic journey, you get familiar with various types of progressions and you find out how and why knowing how to transpose your chords to a different key is so useful. Gregg also shows you how modulation works and reveals the all-important pivot chord as a way to gently move your listener from one section of your song to another.
So open you ears wide, and get ready to listen deeply to the way chord progressions work inside a song! And while you're here, make sure to brush up on your musical theory with Gregg Fine as your guide.

If melody is the story of a song, then harmony is the feeling behind the story. To create songwriting magic, you need to know both. In this Harmony tutorial by chordiologist Gregg Fine, get the whole story of harmony and learn how you can enhance the color and emotion of your tunes.
Harmony starts with triads: the basic building blocks for chords. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to combine intervals to change the nature and color of the chords in your productions. Watch and listen as Gregg shows how to build major, minor, diminished and augmented chords, along with their inversions. You'll also see and hear how added tones can add a new dimension to simple chords.
Professor Fine then introduces you to extensions, suspended chords, power chords and arpeggios. You learn all about the Circle of 5ths and how it can be used to create chord progressions. Understanding progressions is “key” to building a successful and satisfying song. Gregg wraps it all up by taking you to another dimension as he teaches you how to create well-designed progressions, modulations, pedal tones, drones and ostinatos.

How many of your favorite songs can you name just from hearing the bass line? It's probably quite a few. That’s because the bass, when played and programmed by the pros, stands alone at bottom of the production where it serves as the foundation of the track! A great bass line can really make a good song even better! A powerful base line can act both as the foundation of the track and as another melodic hook within the track!
With his carefully crafted musical examples, Gregg gives you a great sense of how a bass line can evolve as your song builds. He uses musical notation so you can see and hear the bass and how it complements the song. Gregg explains how the bass serves to reinforce the chordal structure of a tune by “landing” on the different notes of the chords. He also explains the powerful relationship between the bass and kick. After all, the bass IS a member of the rhythm section!
What takes this bass line theory to even higher ground are Gregg’s thoughtful examples and play-along grooves that allow you see and hear how great bass lines are constructed.
