Pentatonic” scale – is when you play only the notes of the black keys. Playing just the black keys is an easy way to play the 5-note Pentatonic scale. The Pentatonic scale creates a mood that may remind you of songs from East Asia. Watch the video below on how to play “Pentatonic Scale”.
Formular of Pentatonic Scale:
Whole Tone Scales
Whole Tone” scale – is a 6-note scale of which each note is separated by an interval of one whole step or whole tone. This series of notes creates a mood that is strange and mysterious. Watch the video below on how to play “Whole Tone Scale”.
Arpeggio” scales – are chords that are played one note at a time instead of together. You will be playing arpeggio in C major chord.. Watch the video below on how to play “Arpeggio”.
