Going up a tone rather than a semitone works just as well. A wrenching one Ive played in some numbers is a minor third, straight in. Not too easy to pitch if the vocals lead it. Rarely played anything that dropped a semitone. It sounds quite odd, almost going downhill in feel. Playing in bands that may segue several numbers together, and not necessarily ...

Office stationery suppliers sell label sheets in a huge variety of formats, including labels 10mm deep which should be small enough to fit on standard piano keys if you use them "sideways". But even a single sheet would probably label three 88-note keyboards, so you may have to buy far more labels than you actually need. Google for office suppliers - the SE ...

First off, the key of D is ambiguous. A key represents a tonal center and expected harmony with the the normal two being major and minor. Just saying key of D you aren't specifying if it is major or minor. Again modes are not tonal and the idea of a key is so not everything translates 100% between tonal and modal ideas. You could say the key is D Dorian ...

You'd say it's in D Dorian, rather than Dorian D.Like you say C major rather than major C. But be careful, as there are two ways to describe it. The Dorian of D is different from D Dorian. The former has 2 sharps, because it's the mode of D that centres around E, whereas the latter uses C major notes, but is centred around D. I've heard both used, and it can ...

When the composer of a given piece of music is not the one to write up the sheet music, the key/time signature/etc. are up to the discretion of the transcriber. In some cases, they do a terrible job, leaving anyone looking at it confused or annoyed trying to read it as they chose to transcribe it. I suspect that some companies that publish this material ...

Basically, it's a shortcoming of traditional notation to be able to write down blues chords and such. I assume the notation is E major (4 sharps?) Watching the video, a couple things are fairly clear. In the introduction, Jimi's exploiting the tritone, based on E, the tritone interval for which is B-flat. So there's one accidental for ya ... the bass ...

This is probably a rephrase of other comments but I have my own interpretation of CPP usage of minor keys. There is one minor key (the idea of natural, harmonic, and melodic minors as separate entities isn't all that important in CPP music.) The 6th and 7th step of the minor scale are mutable. Either or both may be raised and still be considered diatonic; ...

Try listening to some melodic death metal bands (In Flames as a starting point) then compare that with doom metal and see what the defining characteristics are. After this, try to blend the two in a meaningful way. If you have a melodic lead line, attach it to a slow, plodding drum beat with simple chord variations underneath but keep the death metal ...
