  • Hey, everyone.

  • Welcome back to another episode of TwoSet Violin.

  • That's right, Shaun's back.

  • You might remember him from the making the lo-fi...

  • Well, today...

  • We're fully embracing the dark side.

  • As classical musicians, we're gonna try and make a...

  • As usual, Shaun's gonna teach us.

  • How do you make a pop song?

  • You just pick four chords and sing it, right?

  • This is a song that I made with a friend.

  • He wrote all the lyrics and I just did the beat.

  • So today,

  • probably just write like the verse and a catchy chorus.

  • What's a verse?

  • Uh...

  • Yeah, what's a verse?

  • - Is that exposition in sonata form? - Yeah, what is going on?

  • So, there are a few ways to do it.

  • Probably start with making an idea, like a motif.

  • Or like a nice chord progression.

  • You can do arpeggios, if you want to mix it up as well.

  • Can I go like I-V-vi-IV or something?

  • That's the OG, original.

  • Can't go wrong with OG, guys.

  • Eddy: 2, 3, 4...

  • Shaun: Yeah, that's alright.

  • Oh yeah, I got my chord progression.

  • What's like the synth that's like...

  • Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo -

  • Sound like you're in a trance.

  • All right, draft one, are you ready?

  • Dude, the key came off.

  • - My keyboard is messed up. - His keyboard came off.

  • Oh, s***!

  • Bro...

  • I'm out of here.

  • Dude, mine's so basic.

  • Lots of songs are built on like really basic ideas.

  • - Yeah. - Like basic chord structures, basic rhythms.

  • But it's kind of all the little things you add

  • to kind of make the song more interesting.

  • Like, I like pop, but the stuff I hear I just go,

  • man, it sucks like...

  • That was made in like a factory by like heartless robots.

  • And then, there's just stuff that's just like,

  • someone who loved it made this.

  • - There are two kind of types. Yeah. - Oh, you can tell.

  • So, okay, are we going for the

  • heartless factory approach or the loving...

  • - Approach. - I don't know, whatever you feel like, yeah.

  • I'm going for the loving approach, obviously.

  • All right, are you ready?

  • This is my chord progression.

  • That will work.

  • All right, sweet.

  • So we will build it, like the chorus first.

  • Probably start with the beat, it's got the rhythm going.

  • Usually a good place to start is,

  • they call it four on the floor.

  • It's just kick drum on every beat.

  • Okay.

  • Dude, I'm so on time,

  • I don't even need to quantize this s***.

  • Dude, this whole like lag s***,

  • I'm not even on time with my own beat.

  • I'm not fixing it today.

  • Dude, he's using the drummer track.

  • Bro, don't laugh yet till we hear it.

  • Yeah, true, it might be a masterpiece.

  • What's next?

  • Um...

  • Maybe add like a bass line?

  • Ooo.

  • Fingerstyle bass.

  • Ooo.

  • So how does the bass fit into pop music?

  • So you don't want it to clash with what your kick's doing.

  • What the hell are you doing?

  • Bro, I need help with the bass line.

  • - Okay. - Yeah, I can't think of anything. - Give me something.

  • Um, can I listen?

  • No.

  • - No, I'm not - Bro, I'm not touching that. - You can't hear mine.

  • Uh, what's - What are your chords?

  • I don't have perfect pitch.

  • Hehe.

  • D, F, A, B... Or D, F#, A, B.

  • Bro, mine's so simple though.

  • Mine's C, G, A minor, F major.

  • Yeah, it's pop.

  • On that note, while Shawn's making some music...

  • Accent the like button!

  • - I gave you a rhythm idea. - All right, can you write something for me?

  • Yeah.

  • Look, look, he's loving it.

  • I think Shaun likes my music.

  • I can't listen to it too much or else I'll lose focus.

  • I think I just did the same thing I did for you.

  • - Oh, really? - Yeah, kind of works.

  • Yeah, see, manufactured.

  • Manufactured.

  • Pop music.

  • If you can do it once, you can do it twice.

  • All right, what happens after that? I got the bass line.

  • You need a melody.

  • That's the violin, right?

  • Yeah.

  • Make it more repetitive.

  • Bro, it wasn't recording.

  • Oh...

  • - I pressed the wrong - - That was actually so good.

  • Keep it like simple, you know what I mean?

  • It needs to be more pop less classical.

  • Yeah, like that and just repeat that.

  • Da~ Da-da~

  • Ohhohoho.

  • I mean, whatever sounds good to you.

  • Dude...

  • I feel dirty.

  • I'm trying to scan my head of all the kpop I've listened to.

  • Uh...

  • That's only eight bars.

  • - Shuan: It's all right, copy and paste it. - Do I just loop it?

  • - All right, okay. Okay, that's good. - Wait, my turn. My turn.

  • Oh, ****, what happened?

  • How do I get rid of this?

  • All these chords just came up.

  • It's trying to convince you to go back to classical.

  • It's so...

  • So you got like a nice melody, you got like...

  • Your beat, your bass,

  • you kind of got all the elements there.

  • Now you want to add some like sprinkle on top.

  • - Oh, yeah. - Like some little elements like percussive...

  • Countermelodies...

  • Use them creatively...

  • To kind of like accent other areas of your song.

  • Guitar, I want a guitar.

  • - Cause ******* love guitar. - Girls love guitar.

  • I'm just gonna keep it like it is. I'm done guys.

  • At the moment,

  • it's really accentuating the dissonance in my viola.

  • - I feel like it's boring. - Here.

  • Yeah.

  • - Have a listen. - Nah, not yet.

  • Dude, I'm scared to hear your song, hey.

  • I need to add an embellishment.

  • It's fine.

  • I'll set the bar very low.

  • Aw man, this sucks, but whatever.

  • All right, I'm done.

  • Who do you guys want to hear first?

  • Gets better.

  • I stopped there.

  • - I ran out - I ran out of juice. - You just stopped.

  • Dude, that's actually good though.

  • Who wrote the piano?

  • Did you write it?

  • That's nice.

  • - Bro, this sounds like royalty free music. - That's nice.

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • - We're gonna get non-copyrighted now. - Yeah. Woo!

  • - All right, there you go. - Bro...

  • My vanilla, viola, VVV pop music.

  • Bro, I gave up.

  • Mine had potential, but I just gave up.

  • - There's a drop. - Animal crossing.

  • Yeah.

  • I just wanna dance to it.

  • Ling Ling, TT.

  • What was it?

  • - The countermelody. - Mmm.

  • Nice, nice.

  • Ohhh!

  • It's so out of time.

  • It's okay, we can fix that.

  • Just gave up on the last one.

  • Yeah, I gave up.

  • - That's so good. - Dude, that's good.

  • Actually?

  • Yeah, dude, I could see that be more like

  • Animal Crossing backing music though.

  • I liked the drop, it was really like...

  • - Bang! - Yeah.

  • That's a proper drop.

  • But I do know Animal Crossing has good music.

  • - So I'll take that as a compliment. - It is.

  • You guys should make game music instead.

  • That would be the dream.

  • Like combining -

  • What game would that be?

  • It's game over.

  • It sounds like a prepubescent boy.

  • - Ahh~ - That's the theme.

  • Dude, that f***ing piano line was killing it.

  • Did you write the piano line after the viola or before?

  • - Before the viola. - Okay, yeah.

  • I was thinking...

  • - How would you compose and add it in after? - That note finishes it. - Nah.

  • You can't write anything after the viola.

  • I wanna hear my drop again.

  • Dude, I don't know, man.

  • Like, pop is hard in a weird way.

  • Cause you can't overcomplicate it.

  • The main thing is just catchy melody.

  • I think Eddy got that at least.

  • - Mine was... - Hey, his was pretty catchy.

  • It's catchy in a different way though.

  • It'll haunt my nightmares.

  • No, but I think it's genius how

  • the tune goes from the viola to the piano.

  • - Da~ Dadadadada~ Dadada~ - Dadada~

  • Dude, that's some Bach stuff.

  • Yeah, that's right.

  • - Counterpoint. - Bach.

  • So, that's Pop.

  • I think it was pretty fun.

  • It's so different from classical music.

  • Oh my god.

  • I feel like classical music, we focus so much on

  • the tone that we're making as well.

  • But this is more about the melody, chords and...

  • When you compose classical music,

  • you don't think in chord progressions.

  • I mean, there's still harmonic progressions.

  • But it's not like a 4/4 that you loop.

  • Yeah, classical is like, sonata form is huge...

  • Yeah.

  • All the way and it's never the same.

  • - Yeah. - All right.

  • Anyway...

  • Please accent the like button.

  • Check out Shaun's stuff on Soundcloud.

  • Yes. Thanks so much for watching.

  • If you like it, comment below

  • what you would like us to learn next time.

  • If you don't like it...

  • - Like it anyway. Yeah. - Just click the like button.

  • Accent it.

  • See ya.

  • I don't condone this mic positions.

  • - Dude, just like... - Don't judge my audio engineering degree.
