    I feel like deleting all my old beats and just starting off a whole new catalog. Like before I never really used the black keys when doing Melodies and chords. But just yesterday I finally realized that I can play a weird kind of chord or melody with using the white and black keys. Like I don't know the names of the chords I been using but the shit sounds way different than the white keys.

    Are there any good sites that has the chord-scale charts?


    How many of ya'll use the black keys too??? I used to only fuck with the whites on some Audio-Musician-Racism shit but now this opens up an entire new world of Beatmaking in my eyes

    Im not worried, 80% of niggas are gonna still be playin in C anyhow after reading that. The Majority of cats aint even gonna bother to really try to understand whats going on since that joint doesnt have Key Diagrams and all that shit. It aint really what information you have, its how you apply it.

    lol yall niggaz talk about keys funny like you should only be hitting one color of keys when you playing chords and melodies. Even if you play in A minor 100% of the time you guys better learn how to use that transpose feature in your sequencer, changing the key of a track can really change the feel of your beat
