Learning and practising scales, can be boring, to say the least, for the beginner, and also for the listener.
Here is a video lesson, which will change the way you play the C major scale, forever.
Using just three simple chords, and the notes of the C major scale, you will not only be practising the scale, but creating your own, unique, musical composition, whilst at the same time, developing some basic improvisation skills, and finger dexterity.
Below, are the three chords used in this lesson, played with the left hand. fingering shown.
I will explain the names of these chords ( C major7, D minor7 and E minor7, in future lessons.
