Fingerstyle Minor Chord Scale Relations (Folk Guitar Lesson FO-106) How to play

  • 0:05 - 0:07
    Hi, how'ya doing, Justin here!
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    Welcome to
    Minor Chord Scale Relations!
  • 0:10 - 0:13
    And in this lesson we're going to be
    looking at the relationship of the
  • 0:13 - 0:19
    C maj scale to the chords A min, E min
    and D min; which are the 3 chords
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    in the key of C. We're gonna look at it
    exactly the same way as we looked at
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    the major chords in the C Major scale,
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    So, let's get to a close-up and
    check out how to do this.
  • 0:30 - 0:34
    So, just very quickly, we're gonna revise
    the C major scale, so we have this:
  • 0:34 - 0:48
    G, F, E, D, C, B, A, G, F, E, D,
    C, B, A, G, F and E.
  • 0:48 - 0:51
  • 0:51 - 0:56
    So, the chords that we're
    looking at today: the 1st one is Am (♪)
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    And now we're looking at how to play
    that scale kind of based around
  • 1:00 - 1:06
    our Am chord. So we have here: G (♪)
    - just with the little finger, nice, easy one (♪)
  • 1:06 - 1:12
    to get the F note, our 1st finger
    has to just lay over (♪)
  • 1:12 - 1:14
    and then back to normal for our E note.
  • 1:14 - 1:19
  • 1:19 - 1:23
    On the 2nd string, little finger
    just goes down on the 3rd fret
  • 1:23 - 1:30
    to get our D note, lifts off to regular
    for our C note and 1st finger lifts off
  • 1:30 - 1:40
    to get the note B (♪). Next string: we just
    play the regular note for A, lift it off for G.
  • 1:40 - 1:44
  • 1:44 - 1:47
    Now, we don't tend to use
    these other ones as much, but we've
  • 1:47 - 1:52
    also got F, E, D. We can't really play
    the C there, because it interrupts with
  • 1:52 - 2:00
    the A root note, so: ♪
    That's generally all of the ones we play.
  • 2:00 - 2:05
    We don't tend to play those: ♪
    Well, that's worth knowing to...
  • 2:05 - 2:10
    you might wanna do a little run-down like
    that sometime: ♪. It sounds kind of funky.
  • 2:10 - 2:15
  • 2:15 - 2:17
    Just explore it. Just like I'm doing now:
  • 2:17 - 2:27
  • 2:27 - 2:31
    And see the way that the scale and the
    Am chord kinda lock together.
  • 2:31 - 2:38
    So, the 2nd chord that we're looking at
    today is E minor: (♪). Now, generally, for this
  • 2:38 - 2:41
    particular one you wanna be using be your
    2nd and 3rd fingers, but there's
  • 2:41 - 2:45
    other options, as you know with the
    E minor chord, you can play it with any
  • 2:45 - 2:49
    2, kinda consecutive fingers and you're
    gonna be fine. But because our melody:
  • 2:49 - 2:57
  • 2:57 - 3:02
    is here, it makes sense to use the
    middle two fingers. So, of course,
  • 3:02 - 3:07
    little finger, 1st finger, open,
    little finger, 1st finger, open,
  • 3:07 - 3:12
    little finger on the A, open,
    little finger, if you're gonna go this far
  • 3:12 - 3:20
    on the F, E, lift it off for D, put it
    back on for C, lift it off for B, open.
  • 3:20 - 3:21
  • 3:21 - 3:23
    Don't tend to: (♪)
    Although of course: (♪)
  • 3:23 - 3:24
    just like the A minor:
  • 3:24 - 3:47
  • 3:47 - 3:50
    Just have a bit of an experiment.
    That's all I'm asking you to do,
  • 3:50 - 3:59
    is to play around with the relationship (♪)
    between this scale and the chord of Em
  • 3:59 - 4:04
    Now, there's one more minor chord
    to look at, it's the D minor
  • 4:04 - 4:07
    Now, D minor in open position with the
    C major scale's a little bit awkward,
  • 4:07 - 4:14
    because it's only using the thinnest
    4 strings, anyway. So, we can get (♪)
  • 4:14 - 4:15
    We've got that much.
  • 4:15 - 4:19
  • 4:19 - 4:27
    But we don't tend to use...'cos it uses...
    Has to require some kind of pretty weird
  • 4:27 - 4:30
    stretching things to get there.
    So, generally, you'd wanna do
  • 4:30 - 4:35
    D min using your 1st, 2nd and 3rd fingers,
    little finger down for the note G, off for F,
  • 4:35 - 4:40
    1st finger off to get to the E.
    On the 2nd string: we've already got
  • 4:40 - 4:44
    the note D, 1st finger on the C,
    open for the B.
  • 4:44 - 4:48
  • 4:48 - 4:49
    And then, we've got that:
  • 4:49 - 4:57
  • 4:57 - 5:00
    I'll be honest, I tend to avoid this chord
    because there's no...
  • 5:00 - 5:01
  • 5:01 - 5:02
    Unless I'm just doing those kind of simple
  • 5:02 - 5:09
  • 5:09 - 5:12
    There's, you know, there's different ways
    of playing the melodies there, but
  • 5:12 - 5:13
  • 5:13 - 5:17
    there's not that many as there are for
    the other chords.
  • 5:18 - 5:22
    There we have the chord-scale relationships
    between the C major scale,
  • 5:22 - 5:28
    our Am, Em and Dmin chords. Like I've
    mentioned before, really what I want you
  • 5:28 - 5:31
    to do, is just experiment a little bit.
    See the way that the scale
  • 5:31 - 5:35
    fits with the chord shapes.
    That's really important to be
  • 5:35 - 5:39
    able to understand this idea; there's a lot of,
    lot of ground that this covers.
  • 5:39 - 5:43
    When you understand the relationship
    between the chords and the scales and
  • 5:43 - 5:47
    the way you can put it together, you get
    all sorts of interesting chords, you get
  • 5:47 - 5:50
    the ability to play melody, there's all
    sorts of things that this kinda leads to.
  • 5:50 - 5:54
    We're gonna be exploring some of that.
    But this is one of those lessons that
  • 5:54 - 5:57
    for the future of your guitar playing is
    gonna really make a difference. Even if
  • 5:57 - 6:01
    it doesn't seem to be right now. This is a
    biggin. There's a lot of interesting stuff
  • 6:01 - 6:06
    going on here, so do spend a bit of time
    with it and I'm sure you'll gonna enjoy
  • 6:06 - 6:09
    the next lesson, where we're
    going to learn how to put all of these
  • 6:09 - 6:14
    major and minor chord scale relationships
    along with our folk fingerstyle patterns,
  • 6:14 - 6:17
    to play the Australien classic song:
    Waltzing Matilda.
  • 6:17 - 6:20
    And I'll see you for that very soon.
    Take care of yourselves, bye-bye!
