On the last live lesson, someone asked about relating chords to scales. Not sure of the exact question, but this might help.

It comes from a guy on the Acoustic Guitar Forum by the name of JonPR. He's from the British Isles, and is as astute about theory as anyone I've ever seen or heard.

 

Here's a link to the word document that I made from his chart:  https://www.dropbox....WsMUfQfHZw&sm=1

 

 

EDIT: I can't get the first link to work right, so use the 2nd link below, and go to the 5th post by JonPR.

 

 

This link goes to a dropbox file, and I can't tell if it opens or not since it's my file. Will the first person who tries it add a post to let me know it works?

Thanks,

 

To see how this table came up, the thread it was posted in is here, and Jon's post is #5: http://www.acousticg...ad.php?t=450509


Play well,

I guess you'll need to use the 2nd link. I haven't figured out how to fix the other. :(

If one of you might be Interested in Advancing your Knowledge in reference to Scales and Chords and All the rest that goes with it then check out Scotty West. He has his 1st 4 Lessons Posted on his Web Page and you can view them for Free, No Email, Name, Nothing. Just watch the Videos with No Strings Attached. I enjoyed Watching them and Scotty has a Great Teaching Style. His Home Study Course would Compliment the L&MG Course wonderfully but Not Replace it. Scotty teaches Theory and Applies it to your Guitar in a Very Understandable way, it is Amazing. I can't afford it at the Moment but plan on getting it next year. If you would like to go watch the 4 Free lessons here is the URL. I believe this will be approx. 4 hours of Video if not mistaken since each Lesson is about an Hour in length. I never got Bored it is Very Interesting as he Teaches Music "As a Language". Pretty Interesting stuff. It is Abbreviated AUG.  http://www.absolutel...tandguitar.com/

His Course has 32 Hours of video and is 149.00 - 199.00 depending on the Option you want.

I plan on getting it at some point myself. I really enjoyed the lessons I watched and he seems easy to follow just like Our Steve Krenz. Everybody doesn't have that Talent.

By Session 6, this should be basic knowledge: If not, then learn the scales for the top five keys at the top of the Circle of Fifths (i.e., Bb, F, C, G, and D), then learn the major and minor triad chords for each key: I, ii, iii, IV, V, vii; you can skip viii), so that's three major chords, and three minors (capitalized Roman numerals are major chords; lower case are minor.) For each key you should also put IV7 to memory, because the chord sequences of IV7-I and I-IV7 are extremely common. Once you learn this, the guitar world becomes your oyster and the sun shines upon you even at midnight. Lotsa luck.
