Thanks Alot Maggie. Will be looking into the sites right away Smile

Edit:

E,F#,G#,A,B,C#,Eb,E (http://www.pianoworld.com/fun/vpc/piano_chords.htm)

In the E major scale - Wouldnt it be wrong to say that the E is flat??
It is just a guess, couse if one shold write this down it would look silly! Neutral
I was thinking that in a major scale, all notes where sharped?

Ex: E,F#,G#,A,B,C#,D#,E

You're right, that's a mistake to put an E flat when it should be a D#

Very smart! ^_^

Yea focus on the major's first, than the minors. Learning the whole circle of fifths is very useful though. It gives you a sense of where you are. Also the keys on either side of the circle of fifth are closely related and are the scales you would normally modulate into when composing a piece of music.

Yup, it isnt neacesary to rush it i think Smile
But I have decided to learn all major, minor(melodic and harmonic) before I focus on the circle of fifth. I think its much easyer then. I know all the nuteral majors by hart now. And they are easy to construct 1 1 (1/2) 1 1 1 (1/2)

Hey Andrew I found the link for buying this clock... sweeeet cheers cheers cheers cheers

http://www.stroudflutes.com/clock.html

Learn music theory without even trying!


Features all the keys, with key signatures, relative minors, fourths and fifths.
How it works...

Pick a key. For example if you picked the key of C the letter next
to it on the right (clockwise) will be your "fifth", the letter to the
left (counter clockwise) will be your fourth. The letter in the center
of the clock corresponding to the key is the relative minor. Easy!

Uses...

All musician's must learn the circle of fifths at some point. With
this clock you can just place it anywhere you will see it and just by
familiarization you will memorize the circle of fifths! Knowing your
circle of fifths is usefull for doing simple chord progressions,
harmonizing different keys and composing music.

Hi, I'm a beginner pianist (up to Lesson 8 of Andrew's videos), and I was wondering what kind of progression I should be following. I mean, I've practiced only twice since starting - and now can't because I am piano-less for a while - and haven't tried a song yet. But I've been seeing scales mentioned a lot recently. When should I start worrying about getting these down? Thanks in advance ^.^

Basically, almost all music is based on scales. I can only talk for myself, but I got a lot better at learning songs quicker after I knew the scales good. I got faster good at the songs as well, especially if there where scale-like things In the piece as there are quite some of. There are many reasons, but thats a couple Smile I recommend it Smile

I didnt believe scales would help me much while practicing other songs, but in a way they do, because I now I know what keys I dont need to play.

Not that it's a huge help, but it does make it a bit simpler, that's while playing "off" the digital piano roll, if you play sheets scales helps very much.

That's why I probably didnt think scales help, because I dont usually play from sheets. Razz

You could create a Own Topic for it in the Scale-Forum Smile That would be very useful to many!! Smile

At the moment I have a 4 page pdf of the diagrams and an explanation. I am not sure how to post this here.
Here is a sample:

This shows the right hand pattern for A melodic minor (ascending) over 2 octaves. The thumb takes the first note of each group of notes,
and the other fingers are then obvious. In the above sample we thus use 123 1234 123 12345.

All the other figures are similar. The scales are set out in a way which IMHO helps one to see how the minor and major scales are related.
If I can post the pdf somehow, I shall do so.

I think rapidshare or megaupload both will work, but if they don't, can you email it to me please? xD
