Two Voyagers! Yes! Dream setup! :)

Post by robak84 » Mon Apr 11, 2016 2:28 pm

Okay, guys. I've finally managed to pull out the stunt I've been thinking about for some time. Two Voyas synced via CV - one playing baseline, and another playing chord (minor).

Give me feedback - what do you think? :)

That was nice.
I am sure it helps having three arms as well :) .

Hi robak84,
One trick that will open up your chord types a little more (even though your chord is minor) is to learn how to get a Major 7th chord by playing a Root note in the left hand and then play the right-hand note a Major 3rd higher than the root. This will temporarily take you out of the minor feel, which will make the minors more powerful when you return to them.

Some examples:
Em/C = Cmaj7
F#m/D = Dmaj7
G#m/E = Emaj7

Other useful Minor/Bass combinations:

Ebm/C = Cmin7b5
Fm/C = Fmin (2nd Inversion)
Gm/C = C9 (no 3rd)
Am/C = C6

Here's a combo:
Ebm/C - Ebm/F - Bbm/Bb

Which makes a nice:
Cmin7b5 - F7susb9 - Bbm

Here's another:
Em/C - Am/F - Gm/E - Gm/A - Dm/D

Which makes:
Cmaj7 - Fmaj7 - Em7b5 - Dm

Trying different bass notes on chords is definitely a good trick to achieve "different feelings with same colors". Great tips Dan :)
