Hardest example: C to D. I was using a swirl type background for a slow, somber song, beginning with a C chord. But the next chord was a D, and the extended C texture note in the background gave an unwelcome clash. Since the song had a minor feel, I pretended the C chord was its minor -- A minor -- and used an A for the texture. The sound built up into the D chord with no clashing.
Sometimes studio recording programs have awkward problems that need a workaround. (That's the basis for this blog!) Often I comment to my computer, "I AM going to win, so you may as well do what I want." There's a sense of satisfaction when we figure out the workarounds.
May you have much joy doing so especially in your world of music!
