Find A Songs Key & Guitar Chords – By Ear!

OK – so here’s how to listen to a song and put chords to songs by ear. Its an important know-how to learn. Why? Because when you begin to hear the music in your head it shows through your playing and your writing. Ever wanted to do a guitar solo over your friends house? Well, when you can ‘hear’ the notes before their played, you can improvise that much better. This example takes Mary had a Little Lamb and puts simple chords over the song for you. Start small – then work up to that crazy solo!

‘Stronger’ Music Video

I created a fun video for my piece ‘Stronger’. You can watch it below. This piece is about the struggle within one’s own body. As you listen, you can imagine being ‘torn’ between two parts of yourself. Not necessarily good vs. bad, but just two unsure and powerful beings that live inside each of us. The ending creates a climactic uncertainty – like any struggle.
