I write code and I write music. I'm currently studying for a master's in computer science, researching how music can be used to create user interfaces, and writing the music for Takamo Universe, a 4X space MMO.

comment How to use bIII in music composition?
You're right. I-bIII-IV definitely still works in a major key/mixolydian mode in my experience, and I-II-bIII-IV can work a well.

comment How to use bIII in music composition?
A couple chord progressions using bIII that I've found useful are I-bIII-IV and I-II-bIII-IV. Even though they're similar, the first one sounds very pop-y and upbeat, and the second one sounds more serious, especially in a natural minor key or dorian mode (as i-ii-III-IV).

comment Is this chord progression III I II III?
@Close voters: In my opinion, this question isn't off-topic because it's about identifying a song. Instead, it's on-topic because it's about identifying a chord progression, using a particular song as an example.

comment What does it mean for a song to be played in C minor, D, etc?
During the classical era, composers usually didn't give their songs unique names. So "Hungarian Dances" isn't the name of a single song with several different versions, but rather a style that multiple composers wrote in. The same thing is true of all the songs titled "Sonata," "Symphony," and so on.

Both are acceptable, but the second is usually preferred because it's usually easier to read.

comment Consonance & Dissonance Relative To Melodies
-1 Consonance and dissonance ate very broad concepts in music. Saying that one can only apply them in certain situations is simply wrong.

comment Automatic transcription software with ABC output for Android devices?
@Kevin It would add more context to your question and make it easier to get good answers if you described which style of music you work with the most. I was confused reading your question without that information.
