Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by!

Like me, I'm sure there are times when you daydream about how awesome it would be to spend 24 hours a day, every day, writing, recording and producing music. Someone else would cook your meals, do your laundry, feed your goldfish, a...

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! It's been a long time since I've posted here but I haven't been idle these past few months. I've been working hard on new directions for my music, both creatively and business-wise. More on that last one in a later post. But first,...

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I'm going to do something a little different, for me at least, over the next few posts. I'll be documenting the creation of a new track from start to finish right here in my blog. At the very least, the exercise will enable me to ex...

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I'm not exaggerating when I say that my favorite part of the holiday season is Christmas music. If faced with a do-or-die choice, I would gladly give up all the other holiday stuff. But not the music. So I thought it would be fun to...

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! So what's all this about the devil, and why would he have his own interval? Did the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages really excommunicate musicians and composers who used it? And what the heck is so evil about it anyway?

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Here's the long answer to the question I posed on Twitter yesterday about how to change a major chord to minor. I'm sure many of you already know this, but for those who want to learn the nuts and bolts of it, here goes...
