HOW TO PLAY HIP HOP KEYS DVDs 1 AND 2
The Hip Hop world has had some great hits and they all involve music of some sort like melodies, keyboards and of course hooks. As much as we don't want to go to school to learn about music theory it's everywhere even in hip hop music. It ain' t hard they all use basic music principles like chords and melodies. In this DVD series we teach you how it works. We used our keyboard player, Diggity Dave Patterson, to play the parts and DOC teaches what to do. First we show you a scale, do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do, then show scales and chords in that scale this is important in order to build chords. Then we show you how you can build chords from the main scale a C major scale. Next we play several songs you probably know using the same chords and scales we show you it's that easy. We even play a few hip hop songs and play the parts so you can see how they match the lessons we teach. With today technology you don't need to play fast you can set your sequencer to go slow, at first play just 1 part, listen back, then add the next part and if you want you can speed it back up and it will sound great. All you need to do is understand how to create music with your keyboard to add to a sample, or a little vocal part, the more you use these lessons the better you get at doing it, its all about what you hear in your head. It even helps when you just want to explain to a keyboard player just what you want.
