Had a hard week at work? The Anodyne is the place to grab a beer with friends on a Friday or Saturday night. Just be careful you don’t have too many drinks, because you have to climb a flight of stairs to get in and out of this place. But the climb is totally worth it because Anodyne sits at the top of a historic downtown building that overlooks Central Avenue, the main street running through downtown. You can people-watch and take in some of the best views of the city from this spot. But what we really love, is that they have an iPod console that allows patrons to choose the music — think jukebox for the younger generation. I believe this may the only bar where Joy Division and Garth Brooks might be played in the playlist shuffle.
Hopefully you have some ideas for crafting your own narrative now. Remember, your narrative doesn’t need to be groundbreaking, and even if you think you have nothing to say, you can find a story to share.
Just like your mind and your muscles, your ears also have a shelf life. Go too long without taking a break, and you’ll run the risk of not being able to separate good takes from bad ones. It might sound odd to recommend taking breaks as a time-saving tool for home-recording, but keeping your dexterity as well as your listening skills sharp will protect you from making costly recording mistakes.

For most of the music I play, power chords usually do the trick. I make use of them almost exclusively when writing rhythm parts or exploring chord progression ideas because they’re simple, communicative, and easy to arrange around. Sometimes, though, you’ll want something that sounds a bit fuller and more epic.
So far, we’ve kept to pretty mainstream pop tunes, but when we start to move away from those, things can get murky pretty quickly. For instance, while verses and choruses might be easy to recognize in a big pop anthem, how they function in an electronic dance song might not be as clear. Or how would you describe the form of something like “A Day in the Life” by The Beatles? It’s basically two entirely separate songs smashed together, so there’s no obvious “verse” or “chorus” section. Same thing with Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” but for three songs’ worth!

Touring is great. But it can very quickly turn into exhaustive, monotonous work. Here are 10 great tips to keep things interesting and fun on the road.
You see, “Sorry” is written in E♭ major (a key that boasts the same number of flats as C minor, more on this later). This means E♭ major is the tonic or “home” chord, thus all of the melodic and harmonic content is being created from the E♭ Ionian (major) scale.

By repeating the root note of the chord a few times, the bass part defines the underlying harmony (E minor to A major, two bars each), before continuing into a funky outline of the scale.

Both the principle producer, Tarik “Cilvaringz” Azzougarh, and the group have gone to great lengths to make sure no leaks are possible. Firstly, and courageously, they recorded everyone’s tracks to bpm-synced substitute beats (the performers hadn’t even heard the final beats until the record was mixed), deleted the source tracks and final mixes from all known hard-drives, and hid the album in a number of secure institutional locations around the world.
