From the chromatic scale to the major scale
In this lesson I will take you from learning the chromatic scale on guitar to find how to play a simple major scale. Don’t be fooled by the fancy name: the chromatic scale is just the sum of all the 12 notes we have in our system to make music. These are the 7 natural notes (CDEFGAB) plus the other altered notes (with #=sharp and b=flat).
The famous formula for the major scale as I explain in the video is
W W H W W W H
the video is pretty much self explanatory, and if you want a more in-depth look at the theory behind this, just go to the Freebies section of this website and download the ‘Basic Theory Knowledge’ PDF booklet.
