A video about the music theory behind Lil Nas X “Old Town Road”. It was produced by Young Kio (who sampled Nine Inch Nails “34 Ghost IV written by Trent Rezor & Atticus Ross). It starts off with a C Dimished chord but the Keys C, D, Eb, F, Gb, Ab, A, B don’t fit “perfectly”. However the very natural of diminish chords allow flats (not sharps) to fit harmonically. The very nature of flats are “decending” notes rather than your normal sharps. This is normal for blues and blue grass country music (Thus the reason why it triggered Lil Nas X to have a country vibe when writing the song.). So how do feel about this song?
