Sounds very good! I like the melodies and ideas! I think you can put it together better so it flows nicely! Some parts sounded a little random but the whole idea is very good!
So I did some research and a lot of classical music is using Harmonic minor would you be interested getting into it and try to start using it in your compositions?

I just wanted to check and see if you are interested getting into classical chord progressions and harmonic minor! Let me know! wink.gif

Ok So let's start with this!

Here is an example of descending fifths


So basically the chord roots move up a 4th then down a third, the sequence being created by repeating that pattern two or three more times

The circle-of-fifths is probably the strongest and most common harmonic sequence. It consists of root movement by descending fifths and cycles through every diatonic chord in a given key. Below is the chord progression in C major and A minor:

This is a good start! Please let me know if you have any questions or need help with anything! smile.gif

Thanks, so I was looking into phrasing and I was watching a video, and the guy said I need to know the fret board inside and out, I have been playing with the G major scale, the E minor scale and A Dorian scale, I was using a site that plays chord progressions, I was trying to make it work, I will try to get a video in the next few days to show you what I have been doing

It sounded very good! Nice additions of classical music! Very well done! I think you can develop it a little bit more towards the middle and than drop it back to the beginning melody!
I like the whole idea a lot also would be cool if you can upload the backing track so I can give you some suggestions about the arrangement!

To develop it more I need to take a better look at what Im using and what Im doing, the backing is a simple progression, lets look at the scale shapes Im using and make better use of them, the shapes are

G Major Ionian


G Major Dorian


E Minor - Note: I can not provide a good look at the shape due to its location and given positions on the scale generator so for now I will build it in the A Minor location, here it is


where to go from here, how to build from this?

where to go from here, how to build from this?

The second scale called A dorian not G major Dorian
Dorian is a minor mode
So where you go from here you starting to combine all this positions together all modes are part of the same scale the only difference is starting note but Flats and Sharps will be the same!
Try to do this first lets take
A dorian and B phrygian and combine them
here is an example

As you can see I combined them together
You can use those notes in any order! Let me know if it make sense
I will also record an example for you in a little bit I am having technical difficulties with my card but it should be fixed in a few days
