Music Theory I


Hello Everyone!

I’d like to dedicate this next series of lessons to giving you some practical music theory - little nuggets of information and approaches to the fingerboard that might inform your intuition so that it can make quicker and better decisions. In the past, I’ve sprinkled this information in as we talked about whatever song we were working on, but I’d like for this series to be more of a reference. In this first lesson, we’re looking at the different chords that you get when playing in various keys and an underlying pattern that can help you figure out new keys.

Nice little arrangement there of Chris Thile's "Jesamyn's Reel"!

Why thank you! I've always loved that tune and it is mostly built from arpeggios.
