just start noodling with chords and the different notes in whatever order man. There's really no laws or rules with making sweet sweet music.

Doh.. I just liked the line I quoted :). I mean its cool if you can think and write music or whole composition just to paper like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart did to notations.

But me forexample, I could not experimenting scales or jamming to rhythm and you know... kinda stuff you do with bands or over the recordings. I need sounds or background (allright, Sometimes I have idea to rhythm or theme to song, but anyway...) to write or compose music.

I rarely do not have an idea when I start to make my own compositions, I just do some drums or rhythm track and start to jam over it... some times rhythm lead me to some way, sometimes chordprogression just born there and that leads me to some melodies through jamming and experimenting.

Cheers!

It seems like you're having more difficulty notating your compositions rather than coming up with them. (If I'm wrong, please tell me, haha.) Learning basic theory seems like a good place to start. If you feel like you need a more structured approach, start by choosing a key signature and a time signature (Or find out what key and time signature the riff you thought up is in) and try your best to translate that onto paper. I'm sure there are lessons on here that could steer you in the right direction.

I'm having trouble understanding the relationship between the sub-dominant, the tonic and the dominant triads. Any insight?

tonic triads are triads that start on the first note of the scale.
Sub-dominant triads start on the 4th note of the scale.
Dominant triads start on the 5th not of the scale.

i think

But I thought I read something about the perfect fifths and the triads?

For those math majors out there:

There exists a perfect fifth for every major/minor triad in music between the root and the 5th.

i haven't had someone explain to me the relationships between a major scale and its modes yet. for instance, G Major is G A B C D E F#. the myx. mode of the G Major scale is 1 2 3 4 5 6 7b, or G A B C D E F... but these are the same notes as C Major (obviously with a different root note).

so my question is: what is the difference between C Major and G Myxolidian? this question came up because somewhere on this site (in the licks section, i believe) there is a scale that someone has written in C Dorian... or whatever. i don't remember the exact scale/mode. but my question is if someone says "here is a scale written in G Myxolidian" why is it G Myx. and not C Maj? they are the same notes. what's the difference?

i know differnt modes have different sounds/feels to them, but that is just if you are playing teh scale. if you are just hamming out a solo you aren't playing a scale, you are just playing notes.

gx - check out my lesson on 'Modes and how to use them' and Jazz's lesson 'Major scale and modes within'. They should hopefully help you out a bit :)

justjeff,

do you mean between the root and the 7th?
