Music Theory Lessons
Have you ever wanted to learn how to play piano, guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, violin, viola, cello, upright double bass and tres guiar but don’t know where to start? Do the many keys on a piano and all those strings on a guitar intimidate you? Until now there has only been 2 ways to learn how to play any instrument. There is the old learning to play by ear method and the other way is to learn music theory; however, learning to play by ear is like traveling with word of mouth directions (you’re bound to get lost) and learning music theory is like traveling with and old roadmap (you’re bound to crash). I had the same struggles so I came up with a new way of learning how to play. This method of learning to play any instrument is like traveling with a GPS (you’ll learn all of the short cuts) and is exclusive to MusicMotivated.com and best of all completely!
This method is designed for all levels of players from beginners to advanced players. Or if you’re a pianist wanting to play guitar as well or vice versa. No matter your level of experience you are sure to learn to improve. So here is how it works. In the following lessons you will learn the basics of music theory. You will learn the idea of building chords from a diatonic, pentatonic, blues, spanish gypsy and the santana scale of your choice and building a chord progression. Once you have learn the idea of composing music, or if you already familiar with music theory, you can immediately begin jamming your instruments using my music cheat sheets.
These cheat sheets are charts that map out the notes and chords of each diatonic, pentatonic, blues, spanish gypsy and the santana scale on the most common string instruments. All you have to do is pick a scale and use that chart as a visual reference that maps out your instrument and you don’t have to worry about playing out of key.
Knowing your scales will help you navigate your fingers through a the keys of a piano or any other common instrument.
Learning chords is useful for harmonizing notes especially the key of your song.
Engage your audience to your music using the perfect progression.
Once you get the hang of the previous lessons this next lesson will show you the relationship between all scales.
