> IS THAT YOUR MAMA?

Nope didn't think so either. We all know parents don't get this.

I can show you how to be the virtuoso your folks could only dream about, but I first need your help:

* Pm me and I will show you where to start. I am online every day and I will help you out directly!

* Join my mentoring program. I will customize your learning experience in a way you haven't experienced before. We will have regular contact so that you can remain inspired every day and eventually reach a new level.

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Oh and did you know that to become a killer guitarist you just need to focus on one thing? Everything
else is secondary. Pm me and I will explain.

Hey Himansu! Wow man biggrin.gif It sounds really exciting! Dude, I am a 'simple setup' kind of guy biggrin.gif so I will recommend what I think is necessary for you as a guitarist with a tube amp.

Reverb, Delay, Booster, Noise suppressor, Wah and maybe a Whammy and a Phaser. This is what I am using - but tell me, what sort of budget do you have for the pedals?

Then the noisegate should be the first on the list smile.gif and maybe a reverb - does the 6505 have a built in reverb unit?

As for the noisegate - I recommend the ICP Decimator or the MXR Noiseclamp smile.gif

Hey Himansu smile.gif Well, about theory, we should start with learning things about the major scale smile.gif

What do you know about it so far?

We are going to talk about intervals, chords and arpeggios at first so let me know what you know about these and we'll start from there smile.gif

I am referring to Troy Stetina's theory book
which starts with the same topic related to intervals and the Major Scale

It would help me if you could start from scratch.

I know the Major Scale
but then Intervals arpeggios chord creation is kinda greek and latin for me
so wud love to take it from here itself

Hey there Himansu smile.gif

We will start with this:

1) We have the major scale built up using this formula: w w h w w w h.

w = whole step
h = half step

2) Any natural major scale is built after this formula. Example:

C D E F G A B C

there's a w between C and D
there's a w between D and E
there's a h between E and F
there's a w between F and G
there's a w between G and A
there's a w between A and B
there's a h between B and C

Now, if you look at your guitar, you will notice that if you play the C note (3rd fret D string) the D note is one whole step up, on the same string. That means that the note right next to the C note is C# and the note next to C # is D. So, 2 frets up means one whole step and one fret up means a half step.

3) Now, we have concluded that E is the major third in the case of C major and if we lower the major 3rd with one half step, we get the minor third and automatically, we can create a minor chord - C minor in our case.

Here are the formulas:

1 3 5 - major chord formula. Example: C E G
1 b3 5 - minor chord formula. Example: C Eb G

4) If you know these now biggrin.gif, please tell me how does the G major scale look like - what are the notes making it up. (Use the w w h w w w h formula, starting from G) and tell me the notes making up the G major and G minor chords smile.gif

What do you think?

Cosmin

K lemme try

G Major Scale should be

G A B C D E F# G
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1

Based on the above,

Major Chord Formula: 1 3 5: G B D
Minor Chord Formula: 1 3b 5: G A#/Bb D

Is that correct Cosmin Master???

Can't see any mistake here bro smile.gif It looks like you understand the way these are formed wink.gif Now, tell me, do you know how to harmonize a major scale? This means, using its notes to make up chords out of each one.

Ready? GO!

hey Himansu!

Please post ANYTHING you are practicing and would like to share with me smile.gif

To answer your questions:

1) All the harmonized chords are made up of notes belonging to the scale you are harmonizing. The chord types are merely results of the notes used - for instance: In the case of E major, you will have F# minor as a chord and not F# major, simply because you need a root, which is F#, a third which can't be A#, because A# doesn't belong to the Emajor scale. But A does belong, so there we go, we have A as a third - a minor third that is. And we also have C# which is the 5th -> Minor chord 1 b3 5 (F# A C#)

That's the whole deal to it. Am I making sense? biggrin.gif

2) Diminished is a type of chord having a minor third and a flat 5th -> 1 b3 b5, this is it's formula. It usually belongs to the 7th step of a natural major scale.

What do you think?

Cosmin
