Righteos indignation-Lyrics

Righteous Indignation- Lyrics

What's this weird sensation?

(Hard Rock Instrumental)

(Verse 1)
I'm so sick of all the injustice in the world.
I already know its tough to be a girl.
tired of being misjudged becuase I was born blind
& this is one girl thats gonna speak her mind.
Now hear this its not about looks
where you're from but it mostly
about what you do.
& all I wanted was someone to look up to.
I have a lot to say hope I come in loud & clear
This is a message that I want you to all hear.

Righteous indignation flows in my soul
I feel it surging out of control.
Tired of hiding so get ready to fight.
It's up to you to make things right.
I know its  hard but I got a life to live
& my all is all I can give.
Get ready to feel the sensation of
Feel the sensation of righteous indignation
(Repeat 3x)

(Verse 2)
Skinny models here, there, & everywhere
Why can't knowledge make you stop & stare?
Why do we worship beauty when it only fades away?
Caught off by image but we don't really know
that some things about it are all fake?
To all the stars that I once knew then
believing in you was a huge mistake.

(Repeat chorus)


(Repeat 3x)

(Guitar solo, Instrumental)

(Repeat chourus)

Wild Spirit- Lyrics

Here's a song that I wrote a while back in the form of some lyrics. It's called Wild Spirit I hope that you like it.

Wild Spirit- Lyrics

(Verse 1)
I feel a fever so hot that I’m on fire
To feel a rush is my one desire
Got to break loose from what
they call the mundane
If I don’t I swear I might go insane.
When the energy hits the air
That’s when the spark starts to flare
No turning back now
No way no how!

I got a wild spirit running free
I lose all control when I
Feel it inside of me
I’m fired up & good to go
When the rush comes out
I just want to shout
(Really belt it out!)
Can you hear it?
It’s my wild spirit!

(Verse 2)
Hungry for some action
so give me all you got
I’m on the hunt fired up
& it’s something hot
Sick & tired of always
playing nice & mild
Like all the other rebels
I was born to be wild.
Thrill seeking’s what I adore
No such thing as enoug
Cause I want more
Out looking for a good time
So hear this rhyme!

(Chorus Repeats)

(Guitar solo.)
(Repeat chorus twice.)
Yeah I got a wild spirit!

How to beatbox

Hey there guys its DJ Dizzy here & I got something that'll really get you into music. Its beat boxing.

There are many different ways & styles of beat boxing in which you can try.
But the real pioneers of beat boxing has to be Doug E Fresh & Biz Markie who brought it to the masses & soon became apart of the hip hop culture.

Soon it began to take on many forms as the years went by. People of all kinds regardless of race or gender found themselves trying out this new form. So feel free to have a look at the many different techniques of beat boxing & enjoy!

An Interview with Eric Stuart

Hey there one & all its the DJ here & I'm proud to present an interview that I had the pleasure of doing while back with actor/singer Eric Stuart. For those who don't know him he's a folk rock singer whose also known for his voice work in Pokémon & other well known shows but as part of a report he took the time to answer some questions that I sent to him.

When did you get started in music?
 -I first really picked up a guitar in 8th grade. We had a music teacher that thought it would be cool to form a rock band out of the class. He went around the room and asked what we all wanted to play. I had a guitar at home that I was messing around with a bit so I chose guitar. He taught us rock songs from all the classic rock groups like the Stones, the Who, anything we would bring him. That year we played for the school assembly and I was hooked.
What are your inspirations?
-My hero is Buddy Holly. I am also a huge fan of Bruce Spingsteen, Cat Stevens and Elvis. I have always been drawn to a good song, a cool vibe, and a honesty to the performer. I strive to do the same. I mostly write what I know. I find the listener relates more to music that comes across as real. I may put it in a story but the underlying emotion is always something I have experienced. Songwriting is my therapy. It helps me connect with people. There is nothing more satisfying than having a fan say ‘Your songs move me’.
How do you think rock music in general has impacted or revolutionized American culture?
-Rock used to be the rebellious music. The stuff your parents and society shunned so it was picked by the youth. Now that is really not the case. Rock is pop. Pop is popular. The machine behind many of the bands/artists that are out now are so groomed that there is really not a lot of rebelling. I find very few bands I actually want to listen to, let alone believe. There are exception but overall once big corporations realized that rock was a money maker it became mainstream. I am a mainstream rock guy and was never part of any rebellious band but I always played what was truly honest music. I think image over substance has ruined a lot of what rock is today. That is the risk you run when what is cool gets gobbled up by everyone, it then becomes the norm.
Any new material?
-Yes, I am in the middle of recording/producing our 8th album. It will be out by mid-summer 2012. It learns toward the guitar-driven rock/pop that I love. Strong songs with very cool production. Should be one of our best.

So anyway that was a while back (About 3 years ago.) But aside from that
here's one of his songs that he did.

Eric Stuart band- Staring you in the face

Tales from the rockers domain

Okay I got been diving through the archives of the music scene as of late & when it all comes down to it Some supposed artist that I've seen tend to worry more about there image rather than their own talents. & new singing sensations (If you can even call them that.)

It's the same thing every time just a good looking person lip syncing or taking credit for someone else's work. Even in concert these singers lip sync they don't actually sound like that off stage or in reality.  (It's either a voice track or enhancement.) & although some singers claim its their real "voice." It really is not. Also when it comes to the rock n roll hall of fame I have to side with what

Eric Stuart had to say about how they just induct random artists in there it's partly out of record sales or most downloads. What about the more iconic groups like the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers? Or even The Sex Pistols & the Ramones?

They've been around longer than any of today's singers & yet they get snubbed each time. Now I'll say this It should have to be not just about who's more "popular" but rather include the legends & icons. After all they set the bar for the music scene. (I may be young but I know music.) I should also mention that now some of the music isn't really as it should be. I've noticed that rock music seems to fall into the pop catagory now & speaking as a musician & rock afianado but THAT AIN'T RGHT!! In fact bublegum pop has pretty much taken over when it comes to rock music. When I think of rock that isn't what I want to hear. When you think of rock music you want a gut busting pulse pounding thumping drum solo.

The off the wall wail of an electric guitar. The soft spoken yet hard working melody of a piano & a deep sounding slap that's in your face from a supped up bass guitar. (Thats what rock music is to me.) There's nothing wrong with experimenting with other styles but don't classify it as something else.& I should mention if your at least going to give someone props when it comes to music don't ever overlook the singers that were concidered "forgotten" Cause when you least expect it they might come back just to please their fans & it's always great to have a learning experience for the next gen. Even if they aren't that well known you should give them props regardless. That & if you are planning on a career in music or show biz they thing you need to ask yourself as a performer are these

four questions:

Do you want to do this for the rest of your life?

How can your fame benefit yourself, your fans , & others?

Can your talents succeed you?

Is the world ready for you & are you ready for it?

These are some things that most up & comers forget the moment their egos take over some of them lose sight of why the got involved in the biz & what they set out to do because its a matter of I can do & say what I want with no limits & this is why they burn out. & It should be more about talent rather than image or gmmicks. They may work but in the long run stuff like this can wear on your fans & you should care more about your music rather than that or anything else.

One last thing: As much as it's cool to use a stage name or alter ego the best thing to do is to save it for the stage or when you're performing. Its cool just don't go overboard. Because I've seen enough of that Don't turn yourself into a gimmick or sell yourself out because as a musician that's the last thing you want to do. & if you want to be a good role model here's a thought STAY OFF THE DRUGS!!! PEOPLE ARE WATCHING YOU!!!

Yeah that's a big one because if you're  going to have people emulate your over move you might want to think about what you do beforehand. Well these are my thoughts mostly on the industry & what its become & it shouldn't have to be a popularity contest cause now that's all it really is. Recird sales & downloads shouldn't matter & neither should how many Grammy's you have. The only thing that should matter is what you think. Thank you.

How to DJ

Hey there one & all its DJ Dizzy coming at you yet again. & this time around I'm going to talk about how to DJ. Now you're probably wondering what this is all about, Well it's great to know a new skill & also although I call myself a DJ I'm one in training. & being a DJ is more about doing tricks with records & a turntable but there's a whole lot more to it than that.

In fact here are some videos that'll explain how to really hone the skills & what kind of mixer to use when your starting out.

As for me well I originally started with making mix tapes if my favorite songs when I was kid & then because of my passion for music I was asked to DJ at a local party at a summer camp. Then & there I was hooked.

Though I'm a beginner (DJ is just a stage name.) There's still so much to learn so feel free to watch these videos & chances are we'll both get the hang of it.

How rap changed the game

Hello one & all its the DJ coming at you once again. This time around I'm talking about & covering how rap really came into play. Now for those who really don't know rap got started in the Bronx New York in the late 70s but it wasn't really until the early 80s that it really branched out with  groups like the Sugar hill Gang & their hit song "Rappers Delight."

It was then & there that rap was soon born you would then have many more rap acts of the 80s Such as Run DMC, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, The Fat Boys, & Salt N Pepa to name a few. Pretty soon rap would then begin to find its voice though radio & mainstream media such as TV in the form of a show called Yo! MTV Raps which would then introduce many more artists of the rap genre & then soon that's when gangsta rap would then be born.

Then in the early 90s new jack swing was in full effect courtesy of major acts such as Heavy D & The Boys, KRS- One, Big Daddy Kane & many other acts. But it was rappers like Snoop Dog that would soon emerge making gangsta rap edgier than ever soon other artists of the 90s would then follow. Soon you had all kinds of acts such as  Westside Connection, N.W.A. , Lil Kim, MC Lyte, Angie Martinez, Missy Elliot & many others joining the fold.

Today rap though the genre has come such a long way with such acts as Kendrik Lamar, Nelly & more though some say its dying though its debated a little bit. You have rappers such as Lil Wayne who introduced auto tune to rap & its heavily used in pop music but I digress. No matter how you categorize it rap will forever hold a place in music & though it may come as a shock to some recently a rap group was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame so its a sign that rap will forever be apart of the rock n roll genre & is heavily influenced by it though its mainly from the streets.

So although rap is considered dead to some people in some cases it just might be reviving with artists like Common & Talib Kweli along with Psyche Origami with meaningful & inspiring lyrics & music.

Though lets not forget those who came before them &  honor their music & though we may not hear too much from them they really brought the genre to the forefront & still continues to be a beacon in the rock n roll world.

The evolution of the music scene.

Hello there one & all once again. Its The DJ coming at you. & this time I'm talking about how far music has come over the years. Now being an 80s baby I was exposed to a lot of music genres over the years. But growing up the really popular genres of the time were, rap, jazz, country, reggae,& rock.

In fact you couldn't turn on a TV or a radio without hearing any of them or any famous artist at the time. But before that all happened rock was simply just finding its voice way back when through spiritual music that came from songs inspired by gospel from when slaves used to sing spirituals to help them cope through a hard life. Soon those spiritual songs became gospel & then that took on a whole new form with the introduction of guitars pianos & drums soon it wasn't until a woman by the name of Rosetta Tharpe introduced the electric guitar into the church.

Soon you had Little Richard who would then then incorporate fast piano riffs & soon after rock n roll was born. Then in the 60s & 70s more artists would follow forever changing & shaping how it was played soon you had singers like Chuck Berry, George Thorogood & the Destroyers, Aerosmith, & Cheap Trick would re invent it with their own style composed of blues, & edgy driven lyrics.

Then later on in the late 70s rock then became punk & was redefined with a rebellious sound thanks to groups like the Ramones & the Sex Pistols & thea Dead Boys to name a few. Rock would then evolve even further with  artists such as the Sugar hill Gang & their hot 80s song "Rapper's Delight" (In case your wondering its the one that talks about going to a friends house & the food was horrible.) But anyway that was when rap son found a place in the music scene in the early 80s & soon rappers like Grand Master Flash along with Salt & Peppa would soon open the door for many other rap pioneers.

So then soon after you had acts like Bob Marley & acts like Kenny Rogers who then came to the forefront with their styles of Reggae & country & then such acts like Miles Davis, Charlie Barker & Herbie Hancock with their jazz genre. So if it hadn't been for such genres such as big band, new wave & classical then because of them we wouldn't have the mainstream
genres that we've all come to know & love.

Music is everywhere & its constantly changing every single day & because of TV shows we wouldn't have been introduced to some of these artists & seen their concerts. Though some of the genres are a bit advanced you can never deny the classics of how to play an instrument or hearing a song on the radio. No matter where you go let the music play on & as long as its in the air music can never die.

& most of all if you have a song or melody inside don't be afraid or scared to let it out be proud & play it loud!

How to start a band complete with tips

Hey there all its your old friend DJ Dizzy here & here's a tip on how to start a band. I had the pleasure of finding some videos online as you'll clearly see

Follow these tips to starting a band & you'll soon be on your way. Also here are some tips of my own to really get you on your way. Such as:

There's no I in team: For one there's always some breakout star in a band or group & you have to remember that you & your band are a team & you all play a part no matter what it is. So the thing to do is check your ego at the door unless you plan on going solo.

How you sound makes all the difference: Know this how you sound is very important. If you had lessons be it singing or an instrument put them to good use but most of all remember to put in some serious time be it a whole or half hour you should always remember to practice. which brings me to this.

Always Practice: No matter what time you have day or night be sure to make time for practice.

Pick decent members: When it comes to certain members of a band or group you should always audition the right people & of course make sure their priorities are on fleek with yours & if they check out & of course  be sure they can play an instrument & offer some tips.

Its all about having fun: Music should be about having fun never anything frivolous like fame or money.

Lookout for each other: In addition to being a team also remember to lookout for one another cause at the end of the day & each session you always have to remember that its all for one & one for all. A band is also composed of some good friends that'll help you anyway they can.

Keep it clean: When I say this I mean take care of yourself health wise. The last thing you want to do is go on performing with strep throat or a fever. So always take care of yourself. & this also goes for swearing.

Don't blow your voice: Remember this being apart of a band means that you should always have a decent sounding voice. so take care of that & your main instrument.

Keep these tips in mind & soon your band will be on its way. & of course always remember no matter what part you play its always a team effort.

Thoughts of a DJ: Deejays: Musicians or Jukeboxes

Hey there DJ Dizzy here. Now here's a question that I want to raise to all of you. Now I was reading this in a book just a while back & they had an interesting question which was are DJs considered true artists or just jukeboxes who sample other people's music?

Well here are my thoughts though most deejays are regarded as people who play & sample another artists music keep in mind that they're also famed producers & they do also do their own music such as mixing it with computer programs via Garage band. But also incorporate actual musical instruments into their mixes.

You also have deejays that prefer to use old school methods such as vinyl records whenever they handle music. But to me deejays are true artists that create their own music their music is either meant to make us get up & dance or just take us on a journey into our minds help us escape reality for just a minute. However there are some who recreate another artists music from their own revision of how it should sound to them some of them have also produced other famous other artists.

Though I'm a DJ to be I say that no matter how we want to regard them or what you want to say about them DJs all have something to bring even if its from other artists. But overall they should be regarded as artists no matter what method of mixing that they use. So it really doesn't matter you can still be an artist even if you sample another's work but a true artist is true to their craft no matter what some else might have to think or say.

So with that said  here's some tunes by some up & coming DJs called Fluer East


Thoughts of a DJ: What music really means

Hey there once again & I'm going to talk about something that's very important to me. That of what music really means. Same with the talent behind it.

Now there are a lo of people who do music form many different genres but if anything its the same each time when it comes to that. Most singers being about their range rather than singing the song. I can't tell you how many times I've heard a lot of that. its quite common with singers who mostly do  soul or rock.

Also you can put the blame on some of these singing competitions that are on TV i.e. American Idol (Which is cancelled thank goodness.) & The Voice. They get promised a contract which will guarantee them something that even they know they'll never get. But also you should know for a fact that shows like that are fake. The reality behind that is that its all a set up for selling a product.

Also there are a lot singers that value image & style over substance instead of true talent or the song itself as I stated before. This is one of the main reasons some of these singers get to be overrated because in some cases there are some that are just in it for the fame or to just be heard or feel better or superior than everyone else well to me that's not what music should be about. it should be about the feeling you get  whenever you play an instrument or hear your first song on the radio, it should be a feeling of euphoria & the passion that you have for it. Also take the time to really hone your craft because there are a lot of these so called artists who just want to take the easy way out. when it comes to wanting to be a star& if you spend your time chasing the spotlight then you'll find yourself missing out by obsessing.

I can’t stress this enough there’s nothing wrong with having a passion for something but the key thing is to not make it into an obsession the more you make an obsession of something the less appealing it maybe later on. It soon loses its luster or its rush. 

I should also mention that there a lot of critics out there that want to say that have very weird & strange opinions of how music should sound but here's the thing the reason for that is many people have different tastes in music & most of all different ways of playing so naturally there's always going to be  musicians out there  that do their best to appeal to an audience of some kind. Thats why they  work  to hone their craft as best they can.

So to all of you singers & musicians out there take notes & give a listen. To put it short you don't really need to have an over the top singing voice in order to be a great singer or really be flashy just to appeal to anyone all you really need to do is keep it subtle & have a passion for what you do & because thats what most people really want to see & to me that's what music really means.

How rhythm works

Hey there all DJ Dizzy here & for those who don't quite know how rhythm works. It uses mostly a mathematical formula that of sub division as you'll see in this video

 Square One- Rhythm song

Let me know what you think & if this helps out.

Song compilations: Cartoon edition Part 1

Hey there DJ Dizzy here & when it comes to good music or a show there's always a theme song that usually lets you know that you're in for a good time. There were a lot of shows form the 80s & 90s that did just that so here's a list of them

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Who did it better

Hey there all DJ Dizzy here & as we all know when it comes to some songs The original is good but sometimes when it comes to a cover song you really have to sometimes give it up for the singer who did the better job

But when it comes to most songs one question comes to mind. Who sang it better? Now I'm going to do some songs one original one covered. So here's  2 versions of the same song which is called "Your love  keeps working"

Jody Watley

Joey Diggs

Music Theory Part 5: Chord inversions & more

Chord Inversions:

Chord inversions are made up of C, E, & G the C note is the root or the main note D is second & the E note is third. F is fourth while G is the fifth note which creates it.

There’s no inversion with the main chord since it’s at the bottom which makes it the first inversion chord of C major while the fifth of the chord is at the bottom which is the F chord.

C Major is chord one or the first inversion, G major is the second inversion making it the bottom. They’re comprised root, 3rd & 5th base.

Repeats - D.C & D.S al Fine

This talks about how notes repeat on the staff DC  means da capo to start or to go back to the beginning while DS  means Da segno or to go from the sign. You play the song in which at any time you see these two signs you play at either the sign or the start.

Circle of 5ths:

The circle of 5ths are used to find out relative majors & minors to which ever note you’re looking to match. Examples of this are finding out the equivalent minor to a major note. An example is C major to F minor. You can use the circle to find the matching note you want to play.

How to start it is by numbering out the letters in a circle you can also use this to match up sharp & flat notes.


Quarter Tones:

These are notes that are a  half step apart from each other which is half of a quarter note which is raised by a quarter of a tone that of sharp note.  You can raise a note lower or higher or one to three quarters. Using a symbol of 2 flats back to back you go down to a three D quarter note.

You can also use the symbol to go  either higher or lower when using a sharp or a flat note whenever you play a piece of music. But most instruments such as the piano can’t play it.


Time repeats which are done in pairs are done at the beginning & the end of a song which is done in measures however in doing this you have to play from the repeated sign going back to the beginning. But you don’t play the first measure instead you play the second line but you play the first time measure in the repeat.

In a whole section repeat you start at the beginning with a start at the start repeat & then at the end you’d play to the end with the end repeat sign. On occasion there may not be any start or end repeat signs meaning you’ll have to play the piece through.




Music Theory Part 4: Arpeggios & more


These are spread notes that are played in C major which involves playing with a squiggled line marking which has an arrow pointing causing the notes to be played bottom to top  as well as playing each note one after the other instead of at the same time. It also depends on which way the line of the arrow is facing within the note.


These indicate to jump to the next space on the staff going from B flat to C sharp. The 2 rules involves alternating in between notes & watch out for grace notes.


Turns are ornamentation that causes a note to become four different notes both above & below the written notes on wherever it is on the staff, An example is with B to C in which they appear in between notes which causes you to play quickly before each other.

Grace Notes:

Acciaccaturas or grace notes are crushed notes that causes you to slide gently from one note to the next so you should play it where the grace note should be located indicating where the beat is/played just before or after the beat depending on the tempo For some styles of music there are different ways to play the grace note depending on the music that you’re playing.


A dynamic explains how loud or quiet a note should be. F means Forte while a double F means very loud or fortissimo. P means piano or soft while double or triple P can mean very soft. M means medium soft or mezzo piano. MF means mezzo forte meaning medium loud.

Crescendo means to get loud gradually as you play whatever instrument or song. While a D crescendo or diminuendo means to get softer gradually.
You play a forced note using forte-sondo & forte-sondo piano making it go from forced to piano. These are just some examples of the many dynamics listed.

The tools of songwriting

Hey there one & all DJ Dizzy here &  if there's one thing that I truly love its music but writing song especially cause its a great way to express yourself, Your feelings, You name it. But if you want to write a good song well have no fear cause I can help you. Sometimes writing a song isn't easy but just follow these steps & you'll soon know just what to do. Here let me give an example this is a song that I had wrote for the fun of it. Now take a look at its structure.

Wild as I wannabe- Lyrics

(Verse 1)

Some people think that I’ve got

Nothing going on. well here’s some news

I’m about to prove you wrong.

When it comes to a good time

I know where it’s at

I know how to have fun

That’s a well known fact.

Get ready to see another side of me

cause let me tell you

I’m as wild as I wannabe.



Nothing tame or anything but

Ordinary that’s because I’m as wild as

I wannabe. I’ve got a need for speed

And a full on rush of energy

Check me out cause I’m wild as I wannabe.


(Verse 2)

Being calm & cool

Is sometimes a bore.

There’s to more to me

then being the girl next door.

I’m a fireball that’s ready to

Explode. Be ready cause

I’m ready to unload.

Call me a menace but

There’s a whole lot more to me

Better recognize

I’m as wild as I wannabe.

(Chorus repeats)

(Guitar solo.)

(Chorus repeats)

Check us out we’re as wild as we wannabe!

Now the intro is what starts things out this is the base of the song. Next comes the verse. What this does is to help tell the story of the song. Now it can sometimes come in early depending on how it starts out.

Next is the chorus which is the hook of the song which repeats itself & sometimes can offer a different set of lyrics. Though it can be catchy no less.

The second verse of the song helps move the story further along leading up to the chorus.

Now the bridge of the song is what comes after the chorus this offer something new & unexpected.

Lastly you come back to the chorus which ends the song depending on how many times it repeats & sometimes an instrumental fade out can come up.

Now song writing can be very tough at times  cause some of them can tell a great story depending on the topic but its not just about the words but also the music which makes all of the difference.

So it helps to have the right melody whenever you write a song. When I write a song I think about how I want it to sound so if I were to pick something upbeat I'd use some major notes

But if you want something dark or edgy then you'd use some minor notes but also use bass notes but not too many cause it can come out sounding murky. Song writing is a great way of self
expression depending on what mood you're in.

But here's some tips to help you remember:

When writing a song keep it short but not too simple.

Nothing too preachy or over the top or cliche.

Always be original.

Make it something relatable.

Have fun with it.

I hope this helps you out with your song writing & as I did say always have fun with music should give you a feeling of euphoria & most of all have you wanting more.

Here's an example of a song that does just that.

Trans-Seberian Orchestra- Sparks

So follow these tips & get started.

Music theory part 3: Scales, Modes, Stens, & Intervals

Scales are what start on a stave in a tone which can go either forward or backwards. They’re done by tones & semi tones. They start off on the major scale with A sharp ending in G while the bass scale starts with G ending in A Sharp.
Intervals work as the main note acting as the root while the second is the tonic & the third note is the sub tonic. They’re numbered by 1-5 with perfect octaves, The octaves which are major go to minor as well.
The start out with F major with a number calculation. C uses one semi tone. Semitones make up a major third which go from A to G & are numbered individually. By counting up to the note of the scale you write out the number in an interval there’s always a tonic that becomes semitones making up the perfect interval in a song.
Modes are a 7 way system which consists of Ionian, Dorian, Phygrian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, & Locrian. To help better remember this is a catchy acronym will work such as. Idiots Dig Playing Loud Music At the Library.
Modes are a series of tones & semi tones or whole or half steps. It all depends on which mode you’re using when you play & the difference is that they only use all white notes.
Stems are used to indicate the note you’re playing on the scale. They contain the note head which is on the bottom or sometimes the top. The stem points up or down at the middle line when the note is attached to it depending on where it is on the middle line.
The main difference is the upward notes are for high & higher voices such as soprano which is the high female singing voice while alto is for lower voices meaning the notes would be downward.

Music thoery part 2 Rhythm & Chords


There isn’t also just beat but also rhythm but when you use rhythm you can count it out by either counting it out as well as shouting it out. By subdividing the rhythm you time it out while keeping the beat.


Chords are when 2, 3, & 4 notes are combined. A harmonic chord is done with three chords while demolished chords are done by a third chord going behind the others. When 4 notes combine they make a 7th chord. Most chords are done with cadences, triads, & the main tonic note.

A tonic triad is formed at the root which is starts with an A minor then goes all the way up to the melodic minor.
It really doesn’t matter what version you use as long as you feel comfortable using whatever you prefer.

Music theory Part 1: Notes, Sharps, Flats, & Time signatures.

These are notes regarding music theory as such as notes & beats & how they work.

Music Theory Notes & beats


Notes which are labeled A through G start out the melody or tune of a song. The G cleft or treble notes are used for the high stave & change in higher octaves going forward.

While the F cleft or bass notes are used for the lower part of the stave which change lower octaves going backwards.

Sharps & Flats:

Sharps & flats are used to change the octave of whatever note you’re playing in a song be it major or minor melody. You can use acronyms to determine which notes to play such as:

BEAD, A Car Eats Gas, Every Girl Buys Designer Fashion, & Every Guy Doesn’t Fight Amazons.

Major Notes:

Major notes are played either all naturally melodic but sometimes with sharps & flats depending on which note you’re playing you raise it with a half step but normally major notes are played with a whole step a good example of major notes are C, E flat, & B major notes.

Minor notes:

With melodic minor notes the notes rarely ever change with a whole step but with a half step they use sharps or flats. Which are the black keys on a piano or keyboard. A perfect example of a natural melodic minor are the D & A notes.


Rests indicate a pause in the song or composition usually they can come in front or behind the note of whatever song you’re playing.

Dotted notes:

Dotted notes indicate that the note should be played for a short time when in a song. A perfect example of that is when they’re played they’re called staccato notes.

While notes without them are called legato which are played long & smoothly.

Quavers, Crotchets, & Beats.

When you right a piece of music it really doesn’t matter what beat you use when you compose a piece of music be it 4-4 or2-2.

The beats also depend on whether or not they use crotchet or quaver beats. Quaver beats are in groups of 2 while sometimes they’re in groups of 3s or 8s.

Time signatures:

Time signatures indicate the beat as well of the pulse of the melody in the song you’re playing which is done through pulses.

Some of these pulses are done through time signatures such as duple, triple or quadruple. Duple which is a 2-8 beat, triples are 3-8 beats, & quadruples are 4-8 beats.

It’s also composed of three standards such as simple which are 2 inner beats & compound which are 3 inner beats. While the time signature splits it into 4 beats,

Take it or leve it (The Real me) -lyrics

Take it or leave it (The Real Me) - Lyrics


(Verse 1)

There was once a time when
I was once like you,
always wanting more.
Bailing out on friends & in their

Faces I went & slammed all doors.
People do anything to try to

Play it cool only to end up a fool.
We all have regrets & we all make mistakes

I’ve got one mistake I’ll never make.


I don’t need the validation

Of the hip & cool crowd

I’ve got my own life to live

& I’m living it out loud.

When all is said & done

I’m just out to have some fun.

This is who I am & all I’ll be

Take it or leave it this is the real me.


(Verse 2)

No you won’t find me
bathed in the spotlight’s glow.

I don’t need the world to pick me
Up when I’m feeling low

I’ve got my own path to walk
It’s something that I choose.

Place all your bets on glamour
& you’re bound to lose.

(Chorus repeats)

(Guitar solo.)

(Chorus repeats.)

(Guitar solo fade out.)
