TOPIC: Music Theory & Appreiation - Class #2

Music Theory & Appreiation - Class #2 2 weeks 5 days ago #9426

Here is a summary of what we went over in Week 2:

I reviewed the musical alphabet and the major scale.

I explained the importance of the I IV V progression in playing a song and we used target notes according to the instrument played. You should know your I IV V for each of the natural Keys.

I talked about improvising using a scale.

We then looked at the minor scale for the first time and I explained some differences when playing in a minor versus a major key

We looked at chord triads

Questions:

What is the difference in theory when discussing the I IV V and the I iii V?

What scale has only natural notes?

What is the guitar tuned to?

What is the banjo tuned to?

What is the violin or mandolin tuned to?

What is the pattern for a major scale?

What is the pattern for a minor scales?

Name the four primary Triads

What do I mean when I refer to the common notes?

Homework

Print out an complete you major scale templates

You should practice playing scales in each of the natural Keys. You will find the scales for your instrument in the theory section. Print these scales out and play the major and minor scales.

See you next week.

Music Theory & Appreiation - Class #2 1 week 6 days ago #9431

I have been thinking about this since last week and apologize for not asking sooner.

In the question, What is the difference in theory when discussing the I IV V and the I iii V?

Is this question asking about Major and Minor chords relating to the notes of a Major scale?

If so shouldn't the I ii V be written as I iii vi ?

If it is suppose to be V then I don't have an answer for this question?

Anyone can help,

Thanks, Anthony

The answer to the question is

I, IV, V is referencing a chord progression in a song (ex: G to C to D)

I, iii, V are the three notes that make up a Major chord.

This is not to say that you will not have other chords progressions. For instance, a song may have a

I, vi, ii, V progression (commonly used in Jazz).

Hope this addresses your question.
