Lets get started Sami!

When I talked to you regarding your interests, you mentioned your primary goal - to learn to play Jazz.
In order for us to reach that level, we have to cover theory and harmony, fretboard knowledge and improvising. With these areas we will later (or parallel) work on ear training, songwriting and technique.

Here is your 1st assignment Sami :

Theory reading :

- I would like you to read my posts from links provided below.
- Once you read it all, memorize 3 and 4 part harmony in C major scale.
- Learn to apply scale degrees rather then numbers ( I in C major is C, IV in C is F etc).
- Write out in this thread all notes for 3 and 4 part harmony in C major scale.


Time limit for 1st assignment would be a week from now! (13th of September).

Here are the links :

Major scale harmony and chord functions

Cadences



I would also like you to answers questions bellow :

1) What is scale? What defines it?
2) How do we create chords in Major scale (for example)? What interval is used to build chords?
3) How many notes does Major scale have?
4) How many modes does Major scale have?
5) Name all the modes in Major scale.
6) Name formula of Major scale using half steps and whole steps.
7) How many types of triads (3 note chords) we have in any major scale? Name them.

This should be enough to get us going!
You can send me answer to those questions via PM as I will give this small test to couple of guys here on MTP. I don't anybody to cheat and copy answers from each other!


Feel free to ask any questions Sami and have fun with your 1st assignment !
