You Call It Madness (But I Call it Love)

 

This song was written in the 30s by Con Conrad, Gladys Dubois, Russ Columbo and Paul Gregory. It's played in the Key of G with 4/4 time signature. From the album, All For You (1996).

            C              Cm 
I can't forget the night I met you, 
 D7     G       B7      E7
That's all I'm thinking of; 
    Am       Bdim       D7
And now you  call   it madness, 
     G     C6  G
But I call it love. 
 
 
            C             Cm
You made a promise to be faithful 
D7  G       B7    E7
By all the stars above; 
Am           Bdim     D7 
And now you  call it  madness, 
  G          C6  G  C6  G+  D7   
I still call it love. 
 
Bridge: 
 
 Fm6         G7      Fm6            G7
My heart is beating, it keeps on repeating 
C       E7       Am
For you constantly. 
Dm6             E7      DM6          E7
You're all I'm needing, and so I'm pleading, 
C            Cm      D7
"Please come back to me!" 

           C                 Cm
You made a plaything out of romance! 
D7   G       B7      E7
What do you know of love? 
Am               Bdim     D7
That's why  you  call it madness, 
    G      C6  G
But I call it love.

I just wanted to give a shout out to Elly Brown for contacting PianoDiana regarding their new infographic (JAZZ BENEFITS). I found it to be a great resource and very informative. It's true that music, especially Jazz,  does effect the brain. Presently I am teaching an adult student who received a brain injury from a golf ball. She is making remarkable progress and is so inspiring. Children with autism are responding to rhythm with boom whackers and simple piano patterns.

 I am passionate about this genre of music and if you missed some former posts on the subject of jazz piano, you might want to visit http://ladydpiano.com Music does stimulate the brain and provides better overall health to the individual!

Talking About Inversions


PianoDiana: Inversions

Awhile back I wrote a post on What are chord inversions? I got to thinking about how easy it was to understand the explanation but then some of my piano students shared with me that inversions are like standing on your head and then playing a game of leap frog!

Let's take a look at this a bit more...

  • When the root is on the bottom of a triad, it is in root position.
  • When the 3rd is on the bottom of a triad, it is in first inversion.
  • When the 5th is on the bottom of a triad, it is in second inversion.
 By playing all of these options, you are building your chord vocabulary. You might want to practice all your major and minor chord inversions with both hands.

What happens when intervals stand on their heads? It's inversion.

How do you invert an interval? Just lower the top note by one octave, or raise the bottom note by one octave... the same interval results either way. The only difference is that the resulting inverted interval will be an octave higher using the second method. The thirds and sixths you used to harmonize a major scale are inversions of each other, as are the perfect fourths and perfect fifths.

Why bother inverting intervals? There are many reasons. Intervals that invert to each other, such as the perfect fourth and perfect fifth, share similar general sound characteristics. Understanding interval inversion will help immensely in getting around scales, keys, and very importantly, on your instrument.

All intervals of a certain quality always invert to a specific quality (major intervals always invert to a minor interval. Only perfect intervals invert to the same quality (a perfect interval). All others invert to a different quality (diminished intervals invert to augmented intervals).

Similarly, interval numbers always invert to specific interval numbers (thirds always invert to sixths, seconds to sevenths, etc.) These are both worth knowing. Here are two charts that deal with the general interval quality and the general interval number, or the size of the interval.

Interval Type < Inverts To> Interval Type

perfect <_> perfect
major   <_> minor
minor   <_> major
tritone  <_> tritone
diminished <_> augmented
augmented <_> diminished

Interval <Inverts To> Interval

unison <_> octave
2nd      <_> 7th
3rd       <_> 6th
4th       <_> 5th
5th       <_> 4th
6th       <_> 3rd
7th       <_> 2nd
octave  <_> unison

A helpful theory book you might like is, 300pg Piano By Ear Home Study Course

There's so much more on this subject, like intervals for ear-training with the general sound of various intervals. We'll talk about ear-training methods later on.

Piano Focus: Infograph



I have met some interesting folks from all walks of life that have experienced some type of head trauma. Whether due to a stroke or brain injury from a car accident, each one has told me how music has improved their situation.

If you've been one of the lucky ones that has stayed in good health, then I sincerely hope you are celebrating life by playing the piano and singing aloud. I think this infograph makes it real clear that music benefits the brain.

Thanks Joe Brown for sharing these impressive scientific facts with us.
