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"

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.
