But in westren music there are twelve notes in each octave that are in common use. How do you name the other five notes (on a keyboard, the black keys)?

The sharps or flats always appear in the same order in all key signatures. This is the same order in which they are added as keys get sharper or flatter. For example, if a key (G major or E minor) has only one sharp, it will be F sharp, so F sharp is always the first sharp listed in a sharp key signature. The keys that have two sharps (D major and B minor) have F sharp and C sharp, so C sharp is always the second sharp in a key signature, and so on. The order of sharps is: F sharp, C sharp, G sharp, D sharp, A sharp, E sharp, B sharp. The order of flats is the reverse of the order of sharps: B flat, E flat, A flat, D flat, G flat, C flat, F flat. So the keys with only one flat (F major and D minor) have a B flat; the keys with two flats (B flat major and G minor) have B flat and E flat; and so on. The order of flats and sharps, like the order of the keys themselves, follows a circle of fifths.

                                     

If you do not know the name of the key of a piece of music, the key signature can help you find out. Assume for a moment that you are in a major key. If the key contains sharps, the name of the key is one half step higher than the last sharp in the key signature. If the key contains flats, the name of the key signature is the name of the second-to-last flat in the key signature.

Playing a song or singing a song is a bit different than technical exercises which are much difficult to do long hours, so before practising a student must fix his mind to think that he will give his fixed time in exercises and then later on the song. Songs can be entertaining but technical exercises are improvement boosters and it can help to develop so much, be it guitar or piano or singing. Lastly, whenever we repeat lessons for long we have to meditate on it with the full focus instead of letting the mind wander away from the real path of practice.

SCALES

Scales are classified into two types:

  1. Major Scale
  2. Minor scale

A scale is formed by the order of Semitones and Tones.

Semitones  : Adjacent notes are Semitones

Tones         :  Two Semitones make a Tone.

                                                                      

 (Each and every note has two S.T and two T. One before and one after)

 

Major Scale:

The structure of a major scale is

Root  T       T        S        T        T        T        S       

(Root is the very first note of the scale)

Ex:

C major:

                 T        T        S        T       T        T        S

Root = C     D       E        F        G       A        B       C

 

Tone(C)=D,          Tone(D)=E,           Semitone(E)= F,            Tone(F)= G, Tone(G)=A,                   Tone(A)=B,          Semitone(B)= C

In this way we can find every major scale.

Minor Scale:

The structure of minor scale is:

Root           T        S        T        T        S        T        T       

Ex:

C minor:

                 T        S        T        T        S        T        T       

Root = C     D       Eb       F        G       Ab       Bb     C

Tone(C)=D,          Semitone(D)=Eb,                   Tone(Eb)=F,         Tone(F)=G, Semitone(G)=Ab, Tone(Ab)=Bb,       Tone(Bb)=C

In this way, we can find every minor scale.

Minor Scales are classified into 3 types.

  1. Natural Minor
  2. Harmonic Minor
  3. Melodic Minor

Above discussed minor scales are Natural Minor scales.

  • Harmonic Minor:   If we raise a Semitone for 7th note in Natural Minor, it will be Harmonic Minor (Both ascending and descending).

Ex:     A natural minor

          A       B       C       D       E        F        G

          A harmonic minor

          A       B       C       D       E        F#      G

  • Melodic Minor:    Raise 6th and 7th notes a Semitone in ascending.

                                      Play natural minor in descending.

 Ex:                        A melodic minor

Ascending:           A       B       C       D       E        F#      G#     A

Descending:         A       G       F        E        D       C       B       A
