Gypsy Eyes (The Key)…

eyes1Alright folks, you have decided (by a large majority) to have me record “Gypsy Eyes” in the key of “E”!!!

I was trying to figure out how I would approach the bridge of the song when I came across some of my Theory & Composition homework from college. It turns out one of my many homework assignments (which I got an “A” in – of course) was the perfect fit for the bridge. It’s a Bohemian style of a voice leading keyboard progression in the key of “E minor”. This will be a challenging modulation as the relative minor of “E” is “C#m” and not “Em”. But the tonality around “E” will make the rest of the harmony structure interesting. The trick will be re-entering the last chorus. I am looking forward to that!!!

I am currently working on the arrangement and the orchestration of the song to start laying down a tangible scratch track. I’ll keep you posted on that progress as it develops. From time to time I will give you a sneak peek of the recording process, so stay tuned to the blog, and for goodness sake subscribe to it because, this will be the main platform for sharing the development of the project.

I’ll be back in a week with next week’s blog…Tune in and enjoy!!!
