Do you use scales and chord knowledge to make your own music?

I'm asking because playing by ear, just playing around doesn't work for me, I don't know why and how people do it. And it takes awhile for me to generate ideas, how do you guys do it?

Do you use music theory/scales to play around on your midi keyboard?

Or did you just experiment and found out what sounded good over time? Genuinely curious as I'm trying to learn the basics of theory.

Do you think you need to learn scales to make music?

What is the alternative? Is it needed? I try to play around with no scale in mind but I just hit a bunch of unwanted notes when I try to play around. So I don't really know anymore. What do you guys think?

[QUESTION] What are the essentials (music theory, technique, scales) that every self-taught guitar player should know?

I'm completely self taught, been playing for around 10 years. I'm at the point where I can learn pretty much(with exceptions of course) any song/riff/solo with enough practice. And I can improvise blues solo's in the minor pentatonic pretty well. But I know that there are huge gaps in my knowledge when it comes to theory and techniques, I don't have a practice schedule. I usually just pick up and jam for a while and I don't really know where to start learning new things again. Any advice?

I'm looking for any type of music (although preferably with guitar as focus) that uses a lot of "Arabic, middle eastern" sounds, or stuff loaded with Phyrgian dominant, hijaz scales, or just purely exotic sounding. From any place and any time. Thanks!!

How does tempo and beat arrangement influence the feeling of a scale in music?

I’ve noticed minor scale in downtempo stuff is very relaxing and tells a story.

Minor scale in upbeat things feels aggressive but very emotional. Maybe take euphoric hardstyle or hard trance which feels super aggressive but sensical.

Downtempo and major scale feels really superficial.

Upbeat and major scale feels like super happy and nonsensical. Is this in major scale? This song

Lesson #2: Reading Music - Rhythm/"Time Signatures" - All 12 Major Scales - Enharmonics

If you didn't read the first post check it out here, as this is a continuation from my last lesson where we went over the notes on a piano, accidentals, and a brief understanding of the major scale.

https://www.reddit.com/r/LearnMusicWithPaul/comments/lgwwut/lesson_1_notes_on_a_piano_accidentals_the_major/

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So you've come to learn to read music, that's great. Reading music will help your playing, understanding, and writing of your own music ten fold.

Reading music as some people say is similar to reading a new language.

Today we will focus on reading what is called "The Staff", "Treble Clef" and understanding/reading "Rhythms/Beats" & "Time Signatures".

Let's start with the basics.

Music is written on a "staff" of 5 horizontal lines. Which means there are 4 spaces in between said lines. We can also have notes above (on top), and below the lines.

Here is a picture of a blank staff, with a weird squiggly symbol on the left.

https://imgur.com/UnOrg4P

Ignore those numbers for now as we will talk about them in a few sections. That squiggly Symbol on the left most likely looks familiar to you. That's because it is the "Treble Clef" symbol. A Clef is a specific symbol that is at the very beginning of your musical staff to dictate what notes are being represented on the lines and spaces. There are a few different clefs, all with their own use. Each clef will have the notes on different lines and different spaces than any other clef. For now we will focus only on this one, the Treble Clef.

This clef is quite possibly used the most, it is used in popular music, it is used in jazz music to show the melody, it is used in classical music especially when there is a piano involved, it usually is for the right hand part of the piano, it is also used in guitar music. The other most common clef is the bass clef which is also used in piano (left hand), guitar, and bass guitar, but as I said we will look at the bass clef next lesson.

So as mentioned before the lines and spaces will each be a specific note/letter.

The notes on a staff will usually be some type of circle (we will go over what the circles mean in a bit)

The lower (bottom) of the staff the lower the note on your instrument, the higher (top) of the staff, the

Does the use of pentatonic scale in chinese music makes it easier to fuse it with jazz?

just some random thought. I know both certain chinese music and certain jazz use pentatonic scale, does it, in any way, act as a common ground for these two genre to bind?

Perhaps even they use the same scale, but the harmonics is very different? Does that means you can reharmonize chinese songs easier than other traditional music which uses other scale?

So I've learned all major/minor inversions and scales. What do I need to practice in order to start composing music?

I feel like I'm good at playing scales and inversions but what's the next step I should be taking? Do I need to practice scale degrees like 1, 3, 4 chord progressions? If so, do I start with C and master each degree, or should I learn the same progression for each key? There are just so many combinations/possibilities I'm feeling lost and overwhelmed.

I'm self taught so forgive me if these are ignorant questions. I do plan on getting a teacher at least once a month. I've searched youtube but its mostly people telling you to practice inversion chords, arpeggios, etc. But not really going beyond that.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
