Lesson notes

The next key step to understanding music theory is knowing that along with every chord comes a scale that corresponds. This lesson on major and what’s called “natural” minor scales will take any early guitar player and turn them into a scale playing machine! By using C major and A minor scales that pair directly with the chords in the previous lesson, you’ll get a breakdown of how you can take any chord and, if you know your key signatures, create a scale around it. This ability frees you up to improvise and play over virtually any simplistic chord change.
