Do you need horn parts for your Pop songs and productions? Well shows you just what you need to know to create killer horn section parts for both real horns or MIDI programmed horns! In this series designed for beginner to intermediate arrangers, Eli starts with an introduction, explaining exactly what to expect from the series, and then jumps right in, covering the art of Unison and Octave Doubled horn lines. Harmonizing in 3rds, 6ths and 7ths are then all explained and explored, enabling you to write awesome sounding horn sections with a variety of colors and sound. Eli then gets into voicings, including 3 and 4 note voicings, followed by Drop 2 voicings, which give your horn section parts a more spread out sound, great for wrapping around other instruments.
Finishing it up, Eli explains and demonstrates how to work and write for a five piece horn section, utilizing wide open voicings, fourths, splitting the horns so they aren’t all playing together, and combining different voicings to create a professional unified arrangement.
