Useful tips & articles for beginners who want to start composing

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine is creating a series of articles about composing music, aimed at beginners or people who want to get a more practical understanding of music.

Having read that a few people were interested in the subject, here's the link :
Quickly create a chord progression. No theory needed.

I'd be happy to hear your feedback on this subject of course, what's your approach to creating chord progressions ?

"no theory needed" - begins to explain theory. I guess "Quickly create a chord progression by learning some theory" just didn't have the same ring eh?

It's more meant as no knowledge of theory needed beforehand

Don't want to come across as "Snobby", but is it that bad to actually study theory and lessons with a trained, proficient teacher?

I have seen things like tabs, do more damage than good, when it comes to developing an ear.

It's not snobby. It's absolutely reasonable for anyone who cares about personal growth as well as the art form.

I will add to that that it's curious that this brand new poster just registered and has several links to his "friend's" website. It's almost like....

....hmmm....
