What is the use of changing the tone of a song?

What is the use of changing the tone of a song?

Have you heard the expressions "I can't reach that note", "I don't sing it because I have to make a low voice and I don't like it"? Today we explain briefly how you can solve this problem easily how? changing the tone of the song.

The tonality

As a base you must understand that a song respects a series of rules so that it sounds harmoniously and pleasing to the ear. We will call this general rule tonality. The hue explains what notes or chords you can use in a song.

So if our song is in C (do) in a melodic way we can use only natural notes such as C, D, E, F, G, A and B. Due to its musical notes, the major chords of its hue are Do greater, Fa major and Sol major ', the minors are La minor, Re minor and Mi minor ', and Si It's your diminished chord.

A "high" song.

Listening this song by Janet Kay:

If you have tried to sing it and you feel that you have to make an effort, and that your throat is closed. Do not hurt yourself anymore and lower your tone.

The tone is Fa and lowering it would help us a lot. If we are in Fa we go backwards: Fa -> Mi -> Re #

We have lowered a tone and now it sounds like this:

Better for the voice, right?

Your explanation is very good but now I want to do it

Take your favorite song, a pencil and we will transport to a tone that suits your voice.

I'm going to take the LAVA song as an example

These are the chords of the song: C, G7, F, C

That is also a song that requires a somewhat sharp voice, so let's turn it down. Instead of Do (C). Then we go back, just the previous note is Yes, but remember that we want to lower a tone and from Do to Si there is a half tone so the note we are looking for is flat. The following is Sol 7, if we go back a note we will find Fa, then it will be Fa7. The next one is Fa, if we go back we will find Mi, also from Fa to Me there is a half tone away so the note we are looking for is My flat.
Our new chords are Bb (If flat), F7 (Fa 7), Eb (My flat) and Bb (If flat).

It keeps getting complicated ...

Well, although studying music requires trial and error today the pages help us transport our chords. We just have to go to the box where it says "Modify chords" or "Change hue" and decide if we want to raise the tone or lower it.
