Creating the additional moods with gentle rhythm

Search the symphony orchestra sounds

1. Discover other sounds
Bells are great... but now you should try other instruments to find very gentle repeating patterns what will create moods when played as background rhythm.
Try using the notes of a string guitar and harp.

Send me your results

2. Pick four notes

Again, pick four notes which when played rapidly over and over great a mood.

Create a project file in GarageBand and place the notes in the project file and repeat them for four measures just like you did for tiny bells.

3. Send me your project files for new moods.

Once you are happy with sounds, send me the project file. Each file is 2 points (6 points maximum).

This lesson is done!
