Introduction

Ever wondered what people meant when they say "we're playing in the key of A" for example? Well, in this course we will take you through everything you need to understand how to construct a key using scale harmonisation. To understand this fully, you need to have learnt the previous essentials course as the chord construction and scale construction topics will be at the base of this new piece of theory.

Scale harmonisation is the art of turning a single melody into a symphony of chords, where every note sings in harmony and tells a musical story.

Dan Holton

All of our Theory Lab courses are hosted "on the blackboard". This means that it is theory in the truest sense of the word. We're working with our brains and our thinking mind to try to understand the concept, before using the Guitar Skills, Player Studies & Challenges to put the ideas into practice. Therefore, you can watch or listen to the course without a guitar in hand, perfect for a journey to work or chilling with a notepad handy!
