ALL ABOUT THE GUITAR & KEYBOARD SCALES POSTER

  • The Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster displays the following five different popular scale types for both guitar and keyboard:

-  Major
-  Major Pentatonic
-  Minor
-  Minor Pentatonic
-  Blues

  • On the left side of the poster, the major scales begin with scales in the key of C Major and continue alphabetically down the chart from row to row (C, C#, D, etc.).

  • On the right side of the poster, the minor and blues scales begin with scales in the key of A Minor, the relative minor of C Major, and continue alphabetically down the chart (A, B, B, etc.).

"How scales are associated and connected, that's what I've always wondered. With your Guitar and Keyboard Scales Poster, it's making sense at last."—D. Redman, Port Hope, ON

"My wife bought me the Guitar and Keyboard Scales Poster ... It got me out of a rut in my guitar playing, and I'm moving over to try out [playing scales] on her piano."—Jack Lazic, Chicago, IL

RELATED SCALES GROUPED IN ROWS

  • Major scales appear in the same rows as related minor scales. For example, C Major and C Major Pentatonic scales appear in a yellowish-brown colour band. Adjacent are relative minor scales in a blue band: A Minor, A Minor Pentatonic, and A Blues. All five of these scale types are located in the same row. (Colour-coding by key on the Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster is the same as it is on the Complete Guitar Chord Poster and the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster.)

  • All the scales in any given row are musically related. Therefore, the scale degrees and scale fingering associated with each scale type within the same row are similar.

 

“CROSSOVER” SCALE-LEARNING WITHOUT READING MUSIC NOTATION

  • You can use the Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster to learn to play the same scales on the keyboard that you play on your guitar, or vice-versa, without having to look up scales elsewhere. Guitar and keyboard scales of the same type are conveniently located adjacent to each other on the poster. Keyboard scale diagrams are located just above the guitar chord diagrams for the same scale type in each key.

  • You don't have to figure out how to use scale formulas. And you don't need to know how to read music. The Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster shows you clear fingering diagrams for all the scales for both instruments.

EASY SCALE TRANSPOSING

Suppose you know how to play the scale "D Minor Pentatonic":

D, F, G, A, C, D

  • How can you quickly find the equivalent scale in a different key, for example, the key of A?

  • Here's how, using the Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster: The red horizontal bar on the right side of the poster contains the D Minor Pentatonic scale. The blue horizontal bar on the right side of the poster contains the A Minor Pentatonic scale. Both of these scales are located in the same column, the "Minor Pentatonic" column.

  • Here's the original scale in the key of D, followed by the same scale in the key of A:

Minor Pentatonic Scale in Key of D:

D, F, G, A, C, D

Minor Pentatonic Scale in Key of A:

A, C, D, E, G, A

  • You don't have to do any mental calculations to transpose a scale from one key to another. Just look at the color bar corresponding to the key you want to transpose to. Then play whichever scale appears in the same column as the scale in the color bar of your original key. That's all there is to it.

"What I appreciate having [on the Guitar & Keyboard Scales Poster] is the guitar and piano scales right next to each other. This has made it a breeze to teach my band members new arrangements ... So I can go to the piano and pick out the same melodies I used to know only on guitar, and have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing on the piano, even though I'm a guitar player."—Dan Eldridge, Ottawa, ON

HOW MUSIC REALLY WORKS!

If you don’t yet have a copy of How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, you can read the first 6 full chapters for free at this website:

www.HowMusicReallyWorks.com

For Performers, Students, and Instructors:

  • Most aspiring professional musicians and instructors can sing or play an instrument with considerable proficiency. But they don’t understand much about how music itself really works.

  • If you want to get ahead as a musician and/or instructor, then singing or playing an instrument expertly is not enough.

  • If you aim to make a living (or at least part of your living) in music as a performer and/or instructor, you’ll do a lot better if you understand the important aspects of how music works. For example:

-  What separates a brilliant melody from an ordinary one?
-  How do great chord progressions work?
-  What makes a lyric emotionally powerful?
-  How is it possible to create a unique, original, signature
      sound and style
?

  • All of these topics, and a lot more, are extensively and clearly covered in How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, the world’s single most useful and authoritative book for performers, songwriters, and music students.

  • How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, is equally useful whether you read music or play by ear (like most performers and songwriters). You don’t need to know how to read music. In fact, the book has no music notation—instead, everything you need to know about creating emotionally powerful music AND lyrics is spelled out in clear English, with hundreds of illustrations and examples.

  • If you don’t already have it, you can purchase How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, in print or PDF format, from this order page (phone, online ordering, fax, or mail):

For Songwriters:

What's the status quo in original songwriting everywhere?

Lame melodies. Run-of-the-mill lyrics. Boring chord progressions.

How come?

  • The sad truth is, 99.9% of songwriters fail to rise above mediocrity. Frankly, they’re simply clueless about effective songwriting technique. They have no knowledge of the techniques required to write brilliant melodies, effective chord progressions, and powerful lyrics.

  • If you write songs as a solo artist or member of a band, you’re one in a pack of millions. Anybody can write mediocre songs—which is exactly why the world’s awash in second-rate, forgettable songs.

  • Writing brilliant songs takes real know-how—which is what you need if you expect to break away from the pack and get noticed.

  • With How Music REALLY Works!, 2nd Edition, you can acquire that know-how. You can quickly start learning effective technique: how to create brilliant tunes, how to construct brilliant chord progressions, how to write brilliant lyrics.
