I dont understand. Do you mean what chords is used?
That is all about music theory:

Here it done with a sound-file with a recording of rain, but you make sounds 'muffled' with filters
either the inbuild filters:

or you can add filters to the FX-tab:

its a piano with a tad of darkness -eg enhanced in lower part of the spectrum, for that you use equalizers on the FX-tab

Perhaps my LMMS rookie-guide can interest you? Link in signature.

Its a good way to start there or on a page like 8notes, but there they have very much information, and it can be quite daunting ..
If you feel my guide is missing things, or could explain things better, please say, and you are always welcome with specific Qs.

Think of scales as of a group of notes , that sound nice together.

Depending on the scales and notes used, a music piece can sound cheerful or depressing.

Once Upon a Time in the West is a good example of sad music.

In general the minor scale sounds less happy, and the mayor scale sounds happy.

I learned allot from the vids of musicbear. The good news about music theory is that you need to understand it, but don't need to remember it. Lmms knows most or all scales and most or all chords.
Okay i get abit but even those are too abstract.

I already use mostly jazz scales to play variety of music.
And i guess i feel i can play any sad or happy music in just a scale.

how does a music come to be?

Is it the lyric first... or the message
Or the mood? The tempo and the contrast of each notes?

What does each instruments function in a composition?

Is there a mean to every creation?

In respect to conventional scales, which one are we talking about - List the notes

Yes, that is true. There is a complementary scale for each scale, also show in my vids.

The most important thing is artist creativeness
Is it the lyric first... or the message
Or the mood? The tempo and the contrast of each notes?
For that there are absolutely no given rules
What does each instruments function in a composition?
Mostly you wil have a bass, that together with the percussion, sets the rhythm
Some melodic elements like woodwin pads or similar, and a solo instrument as a distinct prominent carrier of the tune
Is there a mean to every creation?
I dont understand that

An advise: listen to a lot of the music you like to make. Understand
* the structure
* choice of instruments (learn to know instruments
* the beats
* elements in the bass-line
Listen to the music you like, and dont jump/ sprint forward, take small steps.
i see..then in small steps...

How does chord relate to every melodies?

maybe this is not the right place to ask this but...

how do i put chords into the melody?
how small are the steps are we talking about for each "lines"

All 3 is with: scale
I have made specific vids for witch chords you can play in specific scale:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEgx-_hMFYg

Especially its important to understand, why you cant play f.i. a c-minor-chord in a cMajor-scale

But learning these things needs only one 'thing': Study!
You wont get any understanding of these things if you do not take the time to study.
