    lol wow

    Homie actin like you gotta load up black keys to play them, them shits been right there the whole time dion lolll all you had to was press down

    Try this too, when you finish a beat, change the key of the whole melody down and sometimes the shit sounds iller. Like in FruityLoops you just Transpose down

    I used only white keys back in the day...But when i learned the piano, learned what exact black key(s) plays with exact white key(s), every fucking melody has a black keys since then..

    U can`t make a good melody and a complex/full melody without black keys.. When u your melody key is, for example, G.. So you played smtn like, g,d,g,e.. Count, how many chords u can literally use there?? Ughm?? Not much? That`s why half of yall people melodies sound fucking wack..

    Use combinations, white n black..

    Am i the only one except F Major who literally plays keys???
    yall gotta be fucking kiddin me, music producers.. lol..

    P.S. now i understand why half of yall people bitched about my statements that sampling is fucking wack, learn how to make ya own shit motherfucker, don`t steal other people work motherfucker.

    It`s not hard to learn keys people, just fuck with em all fucking night n day..

    But for those who want to learn how to use black keys, i suggest the following..

    1. Find some tutorials how to play famous song on keys (use youtube). For example, Rihanna - Unfaithful, u`ll have to use black keys a lot..
    2. Find smt more complex, replay some stuff u got up there in your workstation/keys.. Pianist, waltz or latin genre..
    3. Start makin melodies usin black keys..


    P.S. if u don`t hear if the certain black key plays with certain white key, u don`t have musical hearing, quit making beats.

    truthfully, just learn how to replay certain songs and u learn alot of chords. i went from just samplin a year ago, to being able to play anything that i hear. and truthfully i know nothing about the keys, im lucky i know where the c key is at. but in my beats it sounds like i know scales and chords and eveything. I just call them keys that sound good together. lol..

    Once you learn the theory behind building minor an dmajor scales. You'll know what black keys to use.. and even after you learn all your scales, you can still jump out of key and reverse chords n shit like that.

    It starts with learning the rule behind building scales though. Once that is embedded, you can do whatever you like. Some people just dont spend enough time on their craft.

    I appluade my nigga DP for actually studyin n shit.

    Holla.

    i learned major and minor chords a while back and it opened a lot of doors, however i'm still not comfortable with it, like i cant move from one chord to the next comfortably, and i still dont undestand the notation (I-IV-II type shit) or whatever it looks like, everytime i read about it i feel like theres a step missing. and i dont really know how to do the key changes that make sense or sound good. i'm tryina learn tho...

    I agree ....I use the blacks keys when ever Im playing with my Keyboard......But every now and then I rtys the white....

    But like Bodi said we need to learn them sharps and flats...so we can then have a combination of Black and white keys...
