Your first Piece
We Are Young
Great well now that you've got your first song down its time to
do a tiny bit more theory, dont worry I'll try to keep it short.
Now that you know three Major chords (C F and G), I'm going to
give you a formula that will allow you to work out any Major chord
that you may need.
Whole Tones and Half Tones
Before I can give you the formula I just need to take a second
to explain to you what a whole tone is and what a half tone is.
A half tone is the smallest possible interval between two notes
on the piano, so looking at the keyboard below C to C# would be
a half-tone, C# to D would be a half-tone, D to Eb would be a half
tone. Interestingly E to F and B to C are also half tones because
they do not have a black note separating them.
Now very simply, a whole tone is twice the width of the half tone
interval(strange that, isnt it?). So looking at the keyboard below
we see some whole tones as being C to D, D to E, E to F#, F# to
Aflat, Aflat to Bflat and Bflat to C. There are of course more,
A to B, B to C# etc, these are all whole tones, once you get the
idea of what a whole tone and a half tone is you are ready to move
