- How To Play A C Major Scale Sequence
- Know your C Major Scales and be able to play with a metronome
After you get the basic forms down for the C Major Scales and you are able to play the scale with 8th notes its time to start practicing scale sequences. This program series teaches you how to start practicing sequence I with the Am pentatonic scale with 8th notes.
A Scale or melodic sequence is a fragment of a scale or pattern that when repeated, forms a continuous pattern up and down each form of the scale. There are numerous sequences made from simple patterns to practice and this is the first one that everybody starts with.
IF YOU CANNOT PLAY 8TH NOTES YET PLEASE START WITH THE C MAJOR SCALE VIDEO SERIES AND IT WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO PLAY 8TH NOTES WITH THE METRONOME!
Directions are as follows:
1. Download the PDF of the scale forms and then watch the C Major Scale 8th Notes Sequence I Intro Video.
2. Learn and memorize the scale sequence for the 5 different scale forms for C Major.
3. Practice the scale forms for 10 to 15 mins a day ( or as much time as you can spare) for 2 weeks working on playing slowly and evenly until you can play the scale somewhat smoothly.
4. If you are a beginner I recommend you watch my First Lesson Beginner Section Part I video program which in the first 5 chapters in that program I talk about the finger exercise and how to use the metronome.
4. Once you are ready, the 2nd video starts you with a metronome at 80 beats per minute with eighth notes. I count us in 1 measue " 1 2 3 4 " and you will play Form I with sequence I with me and I will count us in for each form and play each one 2 times in a row.
5. Practice with 60 BPM"S until you feel you have it consistent and strong enough to move to the 3rd video which is 70 BPMS. Play with 70 BPMS until you can play solid and go to 80, 90, 100 all the way to 200.
