You can’t afford to mess up the melody because it’s the most important part of the beat.

But how can you consistently make good melodies?

Here's the sauce… 😏

Professional producers understand the importance of making the melodies catchy.

And there’s a simple way to do this.

Just build them around simple catchy chords.

One of the catchiest dark chord progressions in all of trap music is the minor harmonic 1-7.

We know that these are all the notes in the minor harmonic scale.

From there, we figure out the 7 chords that can be built from these notes.

And once you know the chords, all you have to do is put them together however you see fit.

So we  make a 1 chord.

Then a 7 with an extra note on top for TENSION.

And that's pretty much it!

And it’s a really dope chord progression, especially for dark Travis Scott vibes.

From there, you can switch the instruments.

And even add drums from the Centerfold Drum Kit 🔥.

I hope this helped you out.
