This lesson is going to depend on your understanding information from the previous lessons in this series. Go back and review any areas of information on the C chord scale where you're not quite comfortable. Remember, this is one way of introducing you to Chord Scales, or as some call them, Harmonized Scales. I'll stick with Chord Scale as the label for them, because in further lessons down the line on Key Centers and Common Tones, I begin by referring to them as chord scales, but evolve into calling them harmonized scales. You will begin to understand why they are called both names.

And here's the chords we'll be using in this lesson. If you haven't spent the time learning the basic barre chord formations, now is the time.

Cm
Dm
Eb
Fm
G
Ab
Bb
