In the past, we have talked about using a key change by transposing an entire section of the song by an interval. This interval can usually range from a m2 to a m3.
Today we will go more in-depth with the similar idea of using chromaticism to create a key change.
Study the example below:
As we get to the V chord of the composition, we get a pull back to the tonic. However, that pull is “redirected” an is instead used in a chromatic pull towards a new chord outside of the original key – that also become the new tonic as well.
So for today’s tip, experiment with the resolving tendencies of the V chord and how with chromatic motion a composition can get to a new key.
