To Do with All Staff Notes
Play these 10 tones while saying the following [go through each point while playing the scale]:
- Note-tone name – EFGABCDEFG
- Note-head location [line and the corresponding number]. Line 1, Space 1, Line 2, Space 3. Or, these are the ones – line/space, then the twos – line/space, etc.
- String/fret combination
- Each tone’s everything: name, notation location, fretboard location. Go in order, plus separate by lines and spaces, as we have done.
See the note-head on its line or in its space, in your mind, as you say/think any of the information on the list.
EFGABCDEFG = C Major’s tones. Starting on the E, the scale is E Phrygian; if you play these tones for long enough (a few seconds), the C tone on string 2, fret 1 will sound as the final (at home, resolved).
Do these & think on these things until you know, that you know it.
