What I= s the difference between Yodeling[=  (also yodelling or jodeling) is a form of sing= ing which involves repeated changes of pitch during a single note] and yelling here it should be obvious the simple repeated changes of pitch sets it apart as singing. In fact many asp= ects of a song repeat in its words its melody and accompaniments to call it MusicÂ

Merriamâ= €‘Webster
Full Definition of MUSIC. 1 a : the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity. b : vocal, instrumental, or mechan= ical sounds having rhythm, melody, or harmony
  • Â Â Let's look at the Definition, f= irst the temporal relationship as we can see in Yodeling the repeated changes of pitch have a definite timing to them, in music this is the rhythm. Said another way "The rhythm of the beat", and for my purpose, to demonstrate the naivety of my music this rhythm also has a simple temp= oral relationship between the pitch, the notes, and the beat, and are done automatically with the ability to stretch or shrink part or all of the elements of the song with a simple dragging of a computer mouse.
  •  Now let's look at the Melody   Â
On the Sensations of Tone a= s a Physiological Basis for the Theory of Music
In simple terms the Melody or Tune of the song is the part that gives it personality or character. You can Identify the song by its melody and it is usually what is pleasing to listen to, you can also identify the melody by a series of pitches in the melody or Tune; that is a series of notes that usu= al repeat in a pattern. Once again for my purpose of showing the aspects of my music the series of pitches can be thought of as a "loop" of music and this may take the form of any accompaniment, for they are a preloaded segments that can be plug in anywhere in the song and changed to any instrument, vocal, or synthesized element. The Rhythm can also easily be changed to match the vocals or beat.
  • Â That brings us to the harmony is t= he use of simultaneous pitches (tones, notes), or chords. The study of harmony involves chords. To help understand this In mathematics, a periodic function is a function that repeats its values in regular intervals or periods.
(In musicharmonization is the chordal accompa= niment to a line = or melody: "Using chords= and melodies together, making harmony by stacking scale tones as triads")
  • Â Â This can bee complicated and ha= rd to understand but the point is it is a applied mathematical function to t= he structure of the music that repeats its values, so we can see that in music it is this repetitive functions wither it be in the lyrics the n= otes the cords the melody or the loop and the sometimes magical way they co= me together that makes it pleasing to the ear that we can distinguish it = and recognize it that we call Music.

"I'm going to rewrite this soon to include some life events" Here's the dealeo, I started doing Wood Sculptures about 15 years ago to try and keep myself busy after I stopped drinking and smoking. About 5 years into it I got throat and neck Cancer. I say this because before I had the Cancer I had not written or sung Music. Looking to clean up an open space in late 2007 and 2008 ( http://openspacedocumentary.blogspot.com/) i became closer to some of the local wild life, I bonded with a Hawk and a Baby duck and started to write songs, I forced myself to sing when I could, I have over three hundred songs now, some good, some not so good, but I am getting better at writing, singing, mixing and arranging.

  I write from a position of emotion and honesty, usually tell a story about love, life, relationships, nature, adventure, history, spirituality,philosophy etc. My Art and Music style is Naive, I beat mix looped instruments as accompaniments but the melodies don't necessarily match, but I put a great deal of thought into them and try and bring something epic to bear in mind, yet some of my songs are ballads and relaxing songs of love . 
   I have 5 song books/ songbooks online 4 of them avalable as google e-books my "The 2009" http://kevinlajiness2009song.blogspot.com/  and 2010 Song Book https://books.google.com/books?id=SWsPBAAAQBAJThe 2011 Song Book https://books.google.com/books?id=8xkOBAAAQBAJ  and

 These books represent a ton of work , good bad or indifferent. I apologize ahead of time for typo's English and spelling, i suck at all of that, but it's about the music and lyrics and that's what really matter but I gave it my best.
 with some links to the songs , some I have taken down, (I am going to try and put them all back up for nostalgia and to show my progress from Throat and neck Cancer), but the lyrics are all there
  I have many slideshows/Videos of nature and Open Space pic's over the years that I put to my music on YouTube-kevinlajiness  and saved in Google + or Picasa.

  I grew up on Lake Erie Lagoons, my grandfather had a bate shop. Fishing and hunting was big on my fathers side no doubted stemmed from the fact that his ancestors were “Woods Runners” or “coureurs des bois”. As long as I can remember I’ve had a love for trees, nature and the environment, I attribute that, and the spiritual connection I have with mother earth, to the connection my ancestors had with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Most if not all of them are child friendly. I started writing my early songs while working on a open space for a year, where I bonded with a hawk and a duck.

        Allot of what I draw from comes from life’s experience and what’s in my heart, what I believe is a responsibility to carry the messages of or ancestors on what is right, to come to a conclusion we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that we pass that on to our children in story and song,but remember i am an artist I write story and rhyme, lesson and fable, I do not try to be politically correct.even though i don't use cuss words other that Hell and dam, I don't have a problem with artist that do,to each there own, I believe things evolve for a reason, hey it got someone out of the slums, by the way the baby duck that followed me home got to big and i gave her to a zoo keeper, she flew back to his house from the zoo and they raised her, she has since had her own baby's
