Post by adavidoiu on Tue Mar 25, 2008 9:23 am

Hey Andrew. You have a video on youtube with scales. I am a bit confused. I didn't understood very well that lesson. I took all the music books that I have and still I didn't usterstood. Can you help me? I'd like to explain me how can I play at the piano a regular scale, than a major scale, than a minor and how can I play it with b and #. Thanks a lot!!!
Alex

Hi Alex,

Andrew's currently on vacation, but he will be back next week. I'll try and answer your question for you.

Pretend you're playing the C major chord, which consists of C, E, G, and you want to change it to minor. To play it in minor you simply flatten the 3rd (E to Eb) and C major now becomes C minor.

wait a second. so, if I want to play a major scale, i have to do 2 tones, one semitone, 3 tones and then one semitone. isn't that right?

and if I wont to do a minor scale, i just transform the third note (and i take the notes 2 by 2) in a black note similary with it.

Yup! All you do is flatten the 3rd (3rd note of C major, which is E), and simply flatten it to Eb - the black key to the left of E. Then it becomes C minor!
