Common Interval Patterns are just what interval patterns humans seem to like and seem to be popular for various kinds of music throughout time. Many of the Common Interval Patterns we will discuss have 1, 4 and 5 intervals. Now we could discuss this as common chord progressions but using intervals instead of chords helps emphasize why the 3 inteval has a minor chord or the 4 has a major chord and helps decrease the total amount of information we must store to transmit this information. The Common Interval Patterns we shall discuss include, 1, 4, 5 and 1, 6, 2, 5 and 6, 5, 4 among many many others. As this course develops hopefully a cool list of different interval patterns will be accumulated to provide the user different options for cool songs they might consider constructing-even if it will sound like many other songs.
