Asked by sean on 2000-12-24
I notice people talking about scales that go with different chords. How do you determine what scale goes well over what chord.

There are 7 notes to each scale e.g CDEFGABC Your Major chords for a major scale are always the 1st,4th and 5th Such as for C major (above)where the Major chords would be C F G And the minor chords are always (in a major scale) the 2nd and 6th chords C major scale= Dmin and Amin Finally the last important chord is the 7th which would be a Bdim. dim=diminished because the 7th is always Diminished. The Bdim is mainly used as the lead chord as it leads back into the C chord (don`t worry to much about using this chord, just consentrate on your major and minor chords) Try this out with different major scales.
