    Default Music guide

    Hey guys! I'm gonna help you learn about music notes!


    Running notes Name:  image.jpg

    Running notes are notes that go up or down right after each other. These are often used in fast songs. Running notes don't always have to go down by one note. They can go in any order, but they have to be right after one another.
    KEEP IN MIND: Do NOT make the whole song run, as it can be very overwhelming and annoying.

    Chords Name:  image.jpg

    As you can see above, there any many different types of chords. There are much more chords than there are shown in the picture, so you can be as creative as you want. Chords are essential in a good-sounding song, as they can turn a dull, annoying song into a masterpiece. When making a song, a chord is a great way to finish it. The max amount of notes in a chord (my suggestion) is 4. If you put any more than 4 notes in a chord, it will likely sound messy.

    Finishing a Song Name:  image.jpg

    To finish a song, you will only need 1 blank note. The top example is a wasteful way to end a song, and the bottom example is a resourceful way to end a song. If you use the top example, you will be wasting blank notes which may be needed for another song, but if you use the bottom example, you will be able to save blank notes for other songs.

    Suggested spacing for ending a song (between final music note and blank note): 3-7
    7 is a very large amount of spacing, but it can be used well in slow songs.

    Bass Notes Name:  image.jpg

    Bass notes are basically two octaves down from the regular music notes. These are great for adding a little bit of spice to your songs, and they are often used as somewhat repetitive notes throughout the whole song. These are very soft, however, so I suggest you use them in very small solos in-between parts of your song.

    Drum Notes Name:  image.jpg

    Drum notes are actually very loud, so I would limit the amount of drums you choose to use in a song. I also suggest that you DO NOT use drums in a slow song. Drum notes can also be turned into a clapping sound. If you place a drum note on a specific note in a column, it'll make a clapping sound.

    Sharp and Flat notes Name:  image.jpg

Size:  235.5 KB

    It's very easy to understand how to use Sharp and Flat notes. Sharp notes are higher than the average note, and Flat notes are lower than the average note.


    Spacing Time Between Notes

    Depending on how far you place notes from one another, each note will take a longer or shorter amount of time until it's played. If you place two notes right next to each other, there is about a seventh of a second in which no music is being played. If you place two notes seven spaces away from each other, it should take about one second until the second note plays. The closer your notes are to each other, there will be a smaller amount of pausing time until the next note plays, and vice versa.


    Other helpful tips

    • Growtopia only allows you to place notes in a preset range of 14 notes.
    • All notes are farmable, but I suggest that you start out with at least 50 seeds to start farming.
    • Each world contains 4 rows in which you can place notes, but the bottom row doesn't allow you two use the bottom two notes (D and C) as they go into the Bedrock of the world.
    • Each row is 14 notes high and stretches all the way across the world.
    • From highest to lowest, this is the order of the notes: B/A/G/F/E/D/C/B/A/G/F/E/D/C
    • Each of the notes listed above has a sharp and flat version of it.


    List of worlds with songs I've made:
    SETTINGMOON (by LukePro)
    TRAPS (by STYX) *same song as the one in SETTINGMOON*
    CLASHED (by ShadowSurfer) *This song isn't an original! It's Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid*
    BATTLEDOME (by ShadowSurfer)
    SHADOWBEACH (ShadowSurfer)
    GIANTBEEHIVE (by MarkA)
    CLOCKOFDOOM (by MarkA)
    CLOTHINGCOMBOS (by MarkA)
    JUSTANOTHERSONG (by MarkA)
    SOUNDOFMUSIC (by MarkA)
    TUNNELMEN (by JOSHIE63) *Same song as the one in CLOCKOFDOOM*
    PHEONIXFIRE (by PheonixFire)
    TESTS (by SbStorm)
    INNER (by Inner)
    PADRONOCEAN (by Techy) *This song isn't an original! It's Masked Dedede's theme from the Kirby Series*
    DESPICABLE (by MoleculeS)
    HABCHY77 (by Habchy77)

    Some of these songs are really bad, as I made some of them when I was only beginning to make music in Growtopia, but I hope you like most of them.

    One more thing-

    Knowing a good bit of music theory helps.

    So does a piano or keyboard.
