Hooktheory Featured on WHYY Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane

Last week, Ryan was called in as the resident popular music theory expert to discuss the “songs of the summer” with Marty Moss-Coane. Also part of the discussion was Bonnie McKee, the songwriter behind eight #1 singles in the US, as well as Dan Deluca of the Philadelphia Enquirer.

You can listen to the approximately 1 hour long show by going here. Ryan comes on at 23:20.

As part of the show, Ryan was nice enough to analyze a few of the songs of the summer for the show. We decided to put him on the spot and have him do his analyses live without having heard the songs before for you guys to see how it’s done. You can watch his “TabCast” below. If you’re not familiar with Hookpad as a songwriting tool or want to see how to use it to contribute TheoryTabs to the database this is a great video to watch:
