C Major Chord Scale in 5 Positions
This is a solid challenge. We are playing the C Major chord scale in 5 positions as a sonic chain.
In the video, I’ve chosen mostly triads, while Major 7s and minor 7s appear along the way, plus changing elements are along for the ride. The Dominant chord (G7) is in place of the diminished chord for the viio chord [the diminished triad is inside the V7 – the 3-5-♭7].
We are playing 3 beat measures. It can be played in 4 or 6; put your own spin on it. We extend the V7 and final tonic chord [I = C] for 2 measures.
In the video, there are changing elements [adding melody, melodic tone toggling] which is lifting and landing/adding and subtracting fingers while a chord is sounding. This can add color and melodic interest to our rhythm playing.
Figure out what else can be added/toggled based on what you hear and fingerings. You’ll most likely discover sounds from songs you know.
Here are my voicings…same as you’ll find in the pdf. Support the project!
