"It is, by far, the easiest way to write a tune as you can clearly see"

Exuberant composer Guy Michelmore demonstrates how to write a tune using dogs, how to use inversions to improve your chord progressions (featuring an impressively impractical visual aid), how to write music while trapped in the boot of a VW Polo. Or if you you're in a hurry, how about music theory in 16 minutes? Bonus: Guy introduces the people of Britain to Cabbage Patch dolls in 1983.

There's loads more great videos about composition, film and TV scoring, and music production on Guy's YouTube channel.

I've watched a bunch of his "serious" videos about composing and software. Even though he's very lively and entertaining in those, I didn't know that he did these less serious videos. These are great!

I appreciated the music theory video, thanks! I finally understand the difference between a minor third and a major third.

(Or as Adam Neely would say: I appreciated the "harmonic style of 18th century European musicians" video.)
