Summary:
I was asked to create a motif (riff) with a C major triad, consisting of the root, third and fifth note of the scale. I made it onĀ https://onlinesequencer.net/ where it allows you to create music with any note.

What I learned:

I learned that making a catchy motif, or riff that grabs people’s attention is easy even with a few simple notes in a scale. That’s how a lot of popular songs are made, and actually why they’re so popular. They are simple and catchy.
