Quick Win #23

Use your Melody as an RP

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • you can use your melody (or a portion of it) as a root progression (RP)
  • you can even use melodies you've already created in the past and re-use them
  • once you've created a new chord progression on top, come up with a new melody


As your starting melody (probably) followed a scale, you might want to change the scale and listen for the emotional changes in your RP and the chord on top! This little adjustment can have a significant impact on the overall musical story!
