A Small Re-view
It's important that you view and understand the previous lessons in this series if you're a beginner, or if you're not familiar with the basics of music. If you're a guitarist who is on the beginning trail, some of this may make sense to you. If it doesn't, please go back first so this is valuable and makes sense.
We have seen how learning the basic notes of the major and minor scales has opened up the larger world of music to us. The notes within the basic C major and minor chords are coming alive right before our eyes, and we now recognize the basic differences between major and minor. Because of the Dancing Siblings in C major
and Dancing Siblings in C minor
lessons, we've been able to learn how these basic notes interact within the scales, with each other.
The basic chord charts that you've created from the previous lessons will prove invaluable to you in this lesson, as well as throughout your basic learning cycle. The information you will soon be able to memorize, and the charts may become history. However, be sure to take advantage of creating and holding these charts as the language in this and subsequent lessons will refer to them.
