Playing Major Scales
A major scale consists of seven notes (1 2 3 4 5 6 M7) which are separated from each other by the following intervals: 1-1-1/2-1-1-1-1/2 (Ex. in C: C-D-E-F-G-A-B). If you transpose it into a different key, the tonic (1) will be your point of reference. In various styles – be it pop, rock, heavy metal or jazz – major scales are the basic tool for soloing and improvising on chord progressions/changes in a major key and are therefore indispensable.
This course provides: the five positions of the major scale (diagrams and video), three technical exercises (first in triplets, then in quads, finally in thirds) with their corresponding recordings to get accustomed to them, and seven licks for putting them into practice by playing them along to backing tracks.
