Interview with Tantacrul

Interview with musican and YouTuber Martin Keary AKA Tantacrul. We chat about content creation for YouTube, learning from failure, the dark art of Reddit, Martin’s journey as a musician, (so far), and how he ended up on YouTube.

This chat actually got me thinking about the music I write and the videos I upload to YouTube, so if nothing else it was handy for me!

Martin’s YouTube Channel

A couple notes:

  • Yeah, it sounds like I say “Kreary” in the intro. I don’t. It’s not. It’s “Keary”
  • Tantacrul hit 100k subs 2 days before this video went out – hurrah!

Music Theory Is Dumb

Some people feel overwhelmed by music theory while others are eager to learn as much as they can. But, why? What good is music theory if it’s not applied directly to music creation or music performance?

Alternate title: People Are Dumb.

This video features snippets of my interview with 12Tone Videos – here is the full-length, 30-minutes interview. Also, here’s a link to 12Tone’s channel.

Exploring the idea of Chord Voicings for guitar, piano and answering the question of whether guitar chords and piano chords are the same thing?

UPDATE:

There’s been some odd questions about this video so wanted to make a few points.

Firstly, yes, this is a question that people are asking. Sometimes I choose a video topic using the YouTube search auto-complete. In this example, if you type “Are guitar chords….” into the search bar, you get the response “… and piano chords the same?” as a prominent result. This means people are searching for it, and that’s why we’re here.

Secondly, yes, I am explaining this fairly simply because, in my opinion, if you’re asking this question you’re likely to be a beginner in terms of chord theory. If you feel like I’ve missed something then feel free to add it to the comments below, that’s what they’re for.

Lastly, no, I don’t feel like I’m providing any misinformation here. At all. Again, if you believe I’m wrong or have missed something crucial please do add it to the comments below.

Anyway, ta 🙂

Note Durations

Music theory lesson covering everything you need to know about note duration or note length. Specifically aimed at beginner guitarists and bedroom producers who have little to no understanding of rhythm or note values. Try to ignore the layer of sweat on my face. This has been the warmest day of my entire life. Like, actually.
