I want to understand how you're supposed to play songs on piano. From what I've seen so far, you play the melody with one hand and with the other hand you play the chords, either as full chords or arpeggios. But how do you know which chords you have to play to fit a certain melody?

I already know a bit of music theory so I tried figuring it out on my own. I looked up Katyusha on piano to see which chords are played.


The song is in D minor, and they play the chords in this order:
Dmin x3
Amaj 2nd inversion x4 (Db E A)
Dmin x 2
Fmaj 1st inv. (C F A)
Gmin 1st inv. (D G Bb)
Dmin, Gmin 1st inv. , Dmin, Amaj inv. , Dmin.

I assume that some chords are inverted so that the transition between them is smoother.

Can this approach lead anywhere good? I havent studied music theory at all and have been just trying to play what keys go good together lol. So far it has improved my coordination and I can make some decent sounds. I just play different chords with the left and different notes with my right at the same time.

However what Im doing is just playing either all white keys, all black, or a mix of black and white keys ive found go good together. Oh and I hold the sustain the whole time because it sounds better.

I dont know how to transition between the three, I feel like theyre each a distinct "level" (donno the term, key, maybe?) and when I try to transition they sound off. How can I merge the three?




What posts were these replying to?


I have this book that shows all guitar chords (or at least I think those are all). I see a bunch of chords that are foreign to me. Stuff like Bbm7-5 or G#m6/9. I know a major chord consists of a root, a big third and a fifth for example. These other chords also have a certain make up. Where can I look that up? Like a list of all chord types and it's explained of what they consist of


Don't worry, all of those posts are still in this thread, it's just that the migration from Bunkerchan to leftypol.org fucked up the quotes.

Epstein style politics
we deserve it tbh


It'd be easier to name the few that don't have entirely dumb or nonexistent political positions. I don't expect musicians to know anything about anything, except maybe how to express their emotions musically I guess.

With film however it's a different story because the film's ideology is more "in your face". In that case I even prefer pointless films that are just pure aesthetics over yet another regurgitation of what the authors read about "social issues" or "politics" in their preferred MSM.


Yeah, in a very frustrating way. Like he kinda gets it but missed the point anyways.
He's done songs and videos about the struggle of poor immigrants. He did a video supporting Assange. Stuff like that. I'd say he's very class conscious, but is missing the vocabulary to make it radical.
Nice. That's pretty cool. I just feel left out from gay circles sometimes, and was being cheeky :P
Mecano is usually played in weddings and some other scenarios, so it's not actually particularly gay.


And heaps of other black metal bands probably, tbh.


Mark had some good takes, but he was just trying to be too reactionary most of the time

Are there any good MIDIs of leftist music? The ones I find are absolute crap.


Why don't you make them yourself? Import notation into MIDI software and done.


MIDI got an update to 2.0 last year

the tldr is 7bit to 32 bit resolution upgrade for pitch, volume, etc , 2way communication for input devices and much more memory for storing sample notes. And it doesn't break backwards compatibility.

If you care about digital music making this is where you need to be.

behold, the only instrumental to be banned from American radio


If you mean foreign lyrics, I don't feel like a poser, though I wish I could understand what the song says, mainly to be able to sing along. (vid related)
If you mean 2deep4me lyrics in a language I speak, then yeah, a little bit, but it's not a big deal, especially if I'm not going to interact with fans who understand the deeper meaning.


FUCK IT, cumbia thread

I can't resist wanting to dance to cumbia (I can't dance, yet). It often has two of my favorite instruments, trumpets and accordion. And many cumbias have a melancholic or sad melody, in my opinion, which I love as well. But every single one of them makes me wanna DANCE.

It's kinda sad that cumbia is seen more as a meme or liked ironically by people my age and younger. Nowadays it seems like only older people appreciate it. I just wanna share my love for cumbia.

La cumbia de gokú

Encephelon's 2015 album "Psychogenesis" is one of the best industrial albums I've heard in awhile, and it's kinda funny because their aesthetic is what I usually associated with shittier industrial music with people wearing gas masks and neon-green hair extensions. It feels like "that kind of thing" but with an incredibly rich and complex soundscape – along with themes of a desertropolis arising on an ancient, sun-burnt world!


Also listen to that Encephalon song all the way through. It's INSANE.

Another recommendation.



This is awful.

They just weren’t

Andrew Patrick Wood was an American musician. He was the lead singer and lyricist for the alternative rock bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. Wood formed Malfunkshun in 1980 with his older brother Kevin Wood on guitar and Regan Hagar on drums.

Oh yeah they're pretty mediocre, Do The Evolution was sort of a One Hit Wonder helped by their excellent Music Video.


Pearl Jam is one of the greatest live bands I've ever seen.
Also, their best albums are No Code and Vitalogy. I think they are "overhated" because people only listen to Ten and then compare it to the best works of Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, which all are way better than Ten, obviously.


Love Battery was a good band to come from the scene. I don't hear much about them. Interesting blend of genres. Pearl Jam is tough to listen to.


A similar Music Video in the same vein is Disturbed - Land of Confusion


Nice, I got based triple 7s
