> 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 there amigo! This is your thread and we will start talking about your development in here smile.gif

I was thinking to ask you what exactly do you know about scales/ intervals/ arpeggios/ chords so far, so I should know better where and what to start with wink.gif

Let's rock!

Cosmin

Hello biggrin.gif

Scales are series of notes. intervals between notes decide what the scale sounds like. i think arpeggios are when you play one note at a time in a chord.. ? i have one question, how you decide the name of chords, for example c9, what does 9 mean?
I dont know much but i am learning now dorian mode, ioninan mode, pentatonic minor and major.
Also, pentatonic minor add 6, what does add 6 mean?

Hey mate smile.gif

Let's take things easy and in turns:

We have the structure of the major scale - C major for instance, ok?

C D E F G A B C and we give each note a number from 1 to 8

Now, in order to make a chord we add intervals to the root and play them simultaneously

C9 would be C E G Bb D and it's formula -> 1 3 5 b7 9 (it is a dominant 9th chord and we know that from the notation - it only has the 9th and no other signs) this means it's dominant.

First of all you must understand the basic structure of a triad - root, third, fifth - 1, 3 , 5 in the case of a major chord and 1, b3 (flat third or minor third), 5 in the case of a minor chord. The other intervals are being added and provide various qualities to the chord.

For instance, C maj = C E G and C minor = C Eb G

Here is your first assignment biggrin.gif Please write down the formulas of the D major, E major, F major, A major, B major G major as above and then their minor versions. Deal?

Cosmin

Well, sort of biggrin.gif You see, when we deal with the major chords, we won't use the note names involving flats, but the ones involving sharps. Can you please re-write the major chords using sharps? smile.gif The minor ones are good like this biggrin.gif oh and please remove that G from the A major chord ... unless of course, you want it to be a dominant 7 chord tongue.gif

This is correct! Now, can you please do the same for Bb, Eb, Ab, Db and then for F#, G#, A#, C# ? smile.gif And I also wanted to ask if you can record yourself, as the next step will be a practical task biggrin.gif

Well, regardless of how bad it will be, I'd still be curious to hear you play smile.gif Now for the practical aspect, we will tackle these lessons here, which are dealing with the exact things we have talked about till now and we'll start with this one below. It deals with triads in the context of a major scale, by harmonizing it. Harmonizing means building a different chord out of each scale degree, using only notes belonging to that scale smile.gif

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Triads..._Series_Part_1/

Please take a look over it and tell me what you think - is it doable?
