Whatever style of music you make, one of the best ways to open your musical mind and ear is to learn music theory. In this follow-up to the Music Theory for DAW Musicians course, Joshua Carney focuses on advanced music theory topics and shows you how to apply them directly in your DAW.

Joshua starts by looking at the building blocks of melody and harmony: musical intervals. You learn about major and minor diatonic intervals, chromatic intervals, and how they are used to build different chords and scales. After quickly reviewing major and minor triads, he dives deep into triad inversions. You learn how to change the voicing of chords to create better sounding and fluid chord progressions, and how to integrate a bassline.

Next, you learn to expand your harmonic vocabulary with more complex chords. You learn about major 7th, dominant 7th, minor 7th, half diminished 7th chords, diminished 7th chords, Add and Sus chords, 9th, 11th, 13th... You also discover practical ways to use the circle of fifths in your compositions. There's a whole section on the musical modes: Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, and Locrian (Sound like ancient Greek? Well, it is!) Joshua shows you how to use these modes to bring different colors to your music. The course ends with a look at 5-, 6- and 9-note scales like the Blues scale, major and minor pentatonic, the whole-tone scale (or augmented scale), and the octatonic scale.

So join Joshua Carney in this advanced course, and get your musical mind a dose of fresh air with advanced music theory concepts!
