Guesswork…Using Chord Charts

It’s guesswork/homework time again…but this time you may use your chord charts.  In yesterday’s episode, we talked about chording the notes of a scale.  If you play triads on the 1st, 4th & 5th degrees of a scale, we call that playing tonic, subdominant and dominant chords.  If you play single notes beginning on the 1st, 3rd & 5th degree of a CMajor Scale we call that forming a chord

on the tonic of the scale.  But, what happens if you play chords on every degree of a scale using all white notes on a keyboard from a CMajor scale?  Would every chord/triad sound major or minor, or something else?  That’s your homework for this week.  Find out what happens…

Shoutouts:  We meant to give a shout-out to two colleagues who have reportedly won awards from the music industry.  Shout out to them and a big congratulations!!  Also shoutouts go to our friends over at Bravura Phil…your concert was great!

See you all next week!  Thank you for listening to the podcast. #cmajorsclassroom #TheCMajorRadioShow #CMajorBeforeTheShow
