Happier, motivational, or brighter songs were mostly in some type of a major key, while reflective and depressing songs had a minor key and were slower in tempo. “unique” songs that didn’t follow this format were generally in the pentatonic scale.

Soundtrap is a far easier tool to use than what I’ve experienced before. It’s so much intuitive and has a clean UI, with simple settings to create whatever I want. 

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

I learned how to play some of the common chords on the thicker E string of guitars. I did this together with two of my classmates, one a similar newbie as me and another guiding both of us along.
