Major Scale Harmony

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Now, I'm not so much going to go into so much on how to harmonize and transpose tidbits of the major scale, but just more making refernce, of chord substitutions and more detailed info on the modes in the key of C and it's modes, meaning every page is the same scale using a different note in the scale as the tonic. The best place to start is with the Major scale of Ionian Mode.

Degrees (in reference to Major Scale): 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Harmonization: IMaj IImin IIImin IVMaj VMaj VImin VIIdim
Root Chord Substitutions: Isus2, Isus4, IMaj7, I6, IMaj9, IMaj11
Notes in C Ionian: C D E F G A B C

Now as I attack each mode I will put a progression to solo over at the bottom. And C Ionian patterns should work on all progression in this lesson.
