Playing in the Musical Sandbox

Playing around on my Iphone and Garageband trying to hear what the different digital instruments sound like. I don’t understand musical theory so I get stuck sometimes, like when I wrote this song in A minor, but played a D major on the guitar in the chord progression. Which didn’t matter until I tried to use those preset”smart” settings on the digital piano and the digital violin strings for Amin scale. I faked it though.  For the verse I pretended as if I was having a conversation with someone and then suddenly found my inner Enya, whose music I love, and filled in with ooh’ing from the word “you.”

Music is such a fun place to be, if you can get over all that self-judgement stuff!
