I'd like to train for a front lever, but I'm too weak to get my hips up even in tuck (back rounded, knees to chin), even if I try to jump into it. What other exercises can I do to develop a tuck front lever? (I do have access to a weight room, and I'm working on straps rather than rings, if that makes any difference.)
Help me get my head around chords in music. I think I understand the basics, but then get confused when thinking about progressions, inversions, root movements etc. [more inside]
What is the best way to master scales, chords, and chord progressions on the piano / keyboard. More specifically, help me create harmony and melody. My husband and I are starting to create music on our computer. I think I have a pretty good ear for what sounds good, but I feel like a complete hack on the keyboard. I would like to become proficient at hitting keys that sound well together or next to each other. I am studying basic theory, but where does the rubber meet the road? Is it simply muscle memory? I am not really interested in playing a piece of sheet music, but if that will help, I will learn. I just want to create my own music. I know I have to practice, but practice doing what? I would be rather proud of myself if someone told me drop and play I V vi IV in F Major and I could do it without thinking.
