Sorry about the paragraph formate, I wrote it differently, in an easier to read style, but this is how it came up when I previewed the lesson.

Music Theory

Major and Minor Scales Key: W=Whole Step H=Half Step R=Root Note #=Sharp b=Flat

Major Scale: W-W-H-W-W-W-H R-2-3-4-5-6-7-R Examples: 1. C Major Scale: C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C 2. D Major Scale: D-E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D 3. E Major Scale: E-F#-G#-A-B-C#-D#-E And So On

Minor Scales: 1. Melodic Minor R-2-3b-4-5-6-7-R Ex. C Melodic Minor: C-D-Eb-F-G-A-B-C 2. Harmonic Minor R-2-3b-4-5-6b-7-R Ex. C Harmonic Minor: C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-B-C 3. Natural Minor R-2-3b-4-5-6b-7b-R Ex. C Natural Minor: C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb-C

Modes 1. Start with the Major Scale 2. Pick the Root Note 3. Pick a Mode: Do- Ionian (Same as the Major Scale) Re- Dorian (Start on 2nd Note) Mi- Phrygian (Start on 3rd Note) Fa- Lydian (Start on 4th Note) Sol- Mixolydian (Start on 5th Note) La- Aeolian (Start on 6th Note) Ti- Locrian (Start on 7th Note) 4. Apply it! Example 1. W-W-H-W-W-W-H 2. C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C 3. Locrian 4. You get B-C-D-E-F-G-A-B
