Dissonance is Beautiful

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

Did you know that dissonance is actually really beautiful? Check it out.

If I play a B and a C at the same time, sounds pretty awful, right? But if I wrap that in a few other notes, we can get to an A minor 9, which is one of my favorite chords. See, what we have there is an A as the root, an E for the fifth, a B for the ninth, a C for the minor third, and on top a G as a seventh. See, that creates a really beautiful haunting texture and it's great in ballads. And I used it in the song "How You Left Me."
