Hi Kompozers What do you think leads to a better song? Writing a melody over a chord progression OR writing chords over a melody. (The melody can be a vocal and/or an instrument) Why? And do you have a preference?

Good morning, someone who can tell me what is the name of the chord formed by these notes? E / B / E / A / D / F # / A, starting with E1 and ending with A3. This chord resolves to AMaj. Thanks a lot.

Hello! I need help in creating the melody for one of my songs. I have created a public collaboration for it (link below), and have uploaded the song lyrics on it. I wanted an indie pop type melody, heavily influenced by Drivers License, Champagne Problems, and You broke me first. The more melodies that come in, the better. Please, please help!

Hello everyone. I would like to know what tonal function the Vmin chord has in this progression. It cannot be dominant since it is not major it does not have minor seventh, if I am not mistaken. I min-V-IVmin-VI The I min is tonic V? IV min-Subominant VI-Tonic. Is the analysis correct?

there is an excellent website (, which also has two books in AppStore and a musical toolkit for creating harmonies and melodies ( you can use the website for free to play around with chords and melodies the books are worth the bugs, since it explains music theory very intuitively

Need help with this track, I got such a great momentum building up to it with such energy, which I would love to keep but for the drop I can't seem to figure out what kind of chords I want to use to keep the happy feel good momentum i'm going for in the build up, I just need a concept to go off of, even if it's basic chords I can use them and then add a melody over top with the drums and bass, but it's I guess the chords which I am struggling with. Need help please and thank you.

I am having the hardest time with backing vocals and harmonies. Some keys seem to be more difficult and some just seem to flow. I would like to step up my game and try new things. But I am thinking I could use some help.

Here is a quick, easy to read article (with examples!) on how to select chords to harmonize a melody. (Guitar knowledge not necessary, despite the fact that it comes from

Hi. Greetings. I'm a new user of Kompoz and I really want to ask this since a long time. I started to made songs since a couple of months and I always question this to myself. Are you compose the treble or the bass first or both of them simultaneously to make a song?
