Scale/Chord Relationships for Melody/Improv; Chord-Scale System; Compatibility Principle

Hi friends! In this episode we’ll discuss scale and chord relationships for melody and improvisation, the chord-scale system, we’ll look at new definitions for modes, learn how modes can be used as independent entities, and the current definition of a scale. We’ll also explore the number of potential scales in existence, what microtonal scales are, and discuss source scales and their subsets, the major and minor pentatonic scales, and my very own compatibility principle. Be sure to pause the video if necessary to follow along!
