Learning the G Major Scale


Hello kids, mums and dads!๐Ÿ˜„

Last week we learnt how to play the C Major Scale ๐Ÿ’š. Now get ready for the next one!

The G Major Scale๐Ÿ’œ!

๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน ๐ŸŽน

To start understanding what a scale is, we must know that each scale starts on the note represented by its name, and finishes in the same note but an octave higher (8 keys to the right of the keyboard). So on the C Major Scale, we start on C๐Ÿ’š and finish on C๐Ÿ’š; on the G Major Scale, we start on G๐Ÿ’œ and finish on G๐Ÿ’œ; on the D Major Scale, we start on D โค๏ธ and finish on D โค๏ธ; and it's the same with every scale. There are 2 differences on each scale.

  • Each scale start and finish on a different note.

  • Each scale follows a different path from the first note to the last (This is well exaplained on the video).

For example, for the ๐Ÿ’šC Major Scale, we started on C and followed a straight path, playing only the white keys, until we got to the next C.

This week we have the ๐Ÿ’œG Major Scale. It starts on G๐Ÿ’œ, follows a straight path along the white keys almost until the end, where it crawls up to F#, or F sharp, instead of playing normal F, and finishes with G๐Ÿ’œ. (A sharp note is the little black key on the right of a white key. So for example, the little blak key on the right of A, will be A#, and the little black key on the right of F, will be F#)

Follow the video to learn how to play 1 or 2 octaves with the correct fingers with Right and Left hands.

When you have practised enough with each hand - try to play it with both like Dani does! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

PS: Dani means 'Little BLACK KEY' on minute 3:51. Excuse his colourblindness ๐Ÿ˜‡
