So I have been writing music for about a year now and for being very new to music and being self taught, the pieces I write even impress me. Currently I am a junior in highschool and I have been playing violin/doing music for 4-5 years. In that time span the only music I have been taught is in a classroom on a violin where I was expected to understand the foundations of music from my early teachers which in my case, I had an extremely poor teacher due to the lack of will in the classroom. As a result I lack music theory knowledge and I play a monophony instrument so the most I can do for writing music is writing a basic melody. What I lack is understanding chords and how notes interact with one another. I love the sound of Debussy and his beautiful harmony but I don't know where to start learning. I am constrained on money and time so a private teacher isn't much of on option. What are some good sources to learn music theory and chords? Oh and if you are interested in some of the music I write, here is a link to my musescore where you can view my music and play them: https://musescore.com/user/2965291I'm looking for an electric violin?
I have been playing acoustic Classical violin for over ten years, and now I am looking for a decent electric violin to produce a range of synthetic violin sounds. Unfortunately, I do not have the money to spend on an electric violin of top quality, but I was wondering if there are any good ones for a reasonable amount of money? Investing thousands in an acoustic violin is something I certainly accept, but I'm not very experienced in the electric violin zone so I need someone who has a lot of experience in this subject to answer please! I'm looking for one that can handle difficult violin music e.g. chords and notes in very high registers. If anyone has a recommendation or imformation, I'd appreciate it :)Silvertone Electric Chord Organ makes constant noise when on.?
I have an old Silvertone Electric Chord Organ, and when I turn it on and push the pedal down, it makes a constant obnoxious sound. I'm not sure if it's supposed to do this or not, but I can't see anyone wanting it to. Any help on how to fix the problem would be greatly appreciated!Beginner guitar questions?
I've been playing violin for almost 5 years now and I still like it, but a few months back I decided to learn another instrument. At first I was going for an electric bass, but after researching a lot about them, I started liking electric guitar a lot more to play (which surprised me, because I had previously decided against guitar since they are so common). Anyways, Now I'm set on learning to play electric guitar. Ive been saving up for it a lot and at this rate, I should have around a thousand dollars in November. (which is the latest I would want to get the guitar. So I figure that it'll be about 200 dollars for an amp, cable, and the other necessary accessories. As for the guitar, I don't want to go over 500 dollars since its my first guitar, but I don't want a real cheap one either. My question is on which guitar would be better for me to get. My dream guitar is the epiphone phant o matic, which was designed in collaboration with my favorite guitarist. That guitar is at the top of my budget at 499 dollars. The only reason for me to look for a cheaper guitar is t because I'm afraid that I'll end up giving up, but because I'm not sure if it's an ok guitar for someone just starting out. So then I came upon the epiphone les Paul 100. That's around 300 dollars. I know that this guitar is popular among beginners, but it's not my dream guitar. Is it stupid to get the phant o matic, which is more expensive, or better to play it safe with the les Paul 100? I would also like to know if my violin experience would benefit me when learning to play guitar on my own. Are there any similarities? Sorry that was so long:)What kind of instrument?
I'm kinda new at playing piano. I've played guitar for 2 years. I know piano is a percussion, and so are drums. And organ is a wind instrument. What is a guitar? Sry if this is stupid.
