Now that you know your note names, the next step is to play full scales.
A scale is a collection of notes in a given key. There are two main types of scales: major and minor. For this example, you will learn how to play the C major scale.
Use the video above to learn the correct fingering when playing the C major scale. It will take some practice to get used to tucking your thumb under your fingers – it might feel weird at first but developing efficient fingering now will set up you up later for silky smooth melody lines.
Play the C major scale at 60bpm and increase the speed by 5bpm every day.
In the next lesson you will learn how to play any scale. Now we’re cooking.
