If you are a Muvizu-er who also prefers to create the music for your videos, here is an interesting and useful link about chord combinations that are commonly used in Movies and TV to evoke certain emotions:




and here's another one along the same lines:

Thanks Pat! I always wanted to learn how to play the piano. This was a fun tutorial. I am downloading a free app just to test my skills.
This might be another distraction from making movies, but you never know. The tutorials were paced great, and I can't wait to test it out.
Maybe I will not have to spend hours looking for that perfect background music.

Mmmm, to produce Hollywood music, you must study music for 15 years...

Or buy a $50 software like MAGIX Music Maker with banks of film music loops http://www.catooh.com/us/sys/id/Katalog/area/8245/

Very easy to use. It's like Lego with bricks of music

Thanks for the heads-up, Gimmick! Looks like a product that would be useful to anybody who wants to make their own royalty free music! I especially like the cinematic clips.

Even with clips, you have to provide a chord structure, and the purpose of the videos above was to identify chord patterns that are commonly used in Hollywood to evoke moods.

I will continue to use creative commons music it seems. All my attempts at being musically inclined have not gone very far. I enjoyed the information about the chords though, and the information about the software.
I thought about testing my skills or lack of skills with Garage Band. It is already on my school issued iPad. I am never ever bored, there is just way too much to learn in life.

About cinematic sounds and royalty-free loops, the Sony Sound Series collection was interesting. One can find CDs on ebay or somewhere on the net...

But the 2016 versions of Sony Production Music titles are no longer available for individual purchase. They are only available with voucher codes included with other applications like ACID Music Studio

I looked at Magix Music Maker tonight. That looks like fun, too. There are so many diversions out there. I think I need to quit the day job. Then I could not afford to buy all this stuff though or have a place to live, or electricity. Oh well. A friend of mine said I do not have piano player hands...ha. I think they are more for typing, or working in fields (my grandfather was a commercial flower grower). But then little kids play the piano and I think my hands are a big bigger than a 10 year old child's hands.

I am going to have to watch some Magix videos if they are around to see how easy it really is. I do not think I have the patience for 15 years to get to be an accomplished musician. It would be nice to be able to make original music though. There would never be that much of it, only a few seconds here or there. Or maybe a minute.
