Music Theory

Minor Scales In the last couple of blog posts, we learned about Major Scales and the chord progressions that correspond to them. Now let’s discuss Minor Scales. The notes of the Minor Scale can be ascertained in two different ways - either by using the Relative Minor of a Major Key, or with a formula like the one we used to figure

Ok! So now that we understand Scales, let’s talk about Chords. Chords are 3 or more notes played simultaneously. The two most common 3 note chords (a Triad) are called Major and Minor. Though used less often, we’ll also talk about Diminished (Dim) and Augmented (Aug)  triads.  Once you know the major scale of a given key, it’s easy to figure

Understanding Music Theory will help you in many ways. From learning how to construct scales using intervals, to building chords and chord progressions, the applications of Music Theory are endless. Scales and keys can help us figure out melodies much more quickly. Knowing the key of a song and it’s associated scale(s), we can begin to eliminate tones that don’t
