KEY AWARENESS
Scale is a sequence of tones.
It is a base to make music.
The main scales of western music are major and minor scales.
Every scale determines a key,that is an harmonic combunation of tones
based on that scale.
So, F Major key uses the tones of F Major scale.E minor key uses the tones
of E minor scale(s).
I consider the Blues like a key: for example Bb Blues or Bb minor Blues
can be considered two kind of Major and Minor keys
You always have to know in which key you are playing in each moment.
A change of key is called Modulation.
Each scale or key has its own chords.
They are build on each degree of the scale with harmonizations by thirds
You can recognize key by Clef,chords,melody…
Transpose and play in all keys!
The chords of every key are:
Major Key : D Maj Example
