New article about musical scales

I’ve dug up some information that I posted on a forum about scales and polished it into a new article here.  It’s called “The Basics of Scales” and it describes all of the essential scales in Western music (chromatic, major, minor, pentatonic and triads).  I hope this will be useful for guitarists who have never learnt about music theory.

I have some more similar information lying around, notably on barre chords, which I will probably also write up in the near future.

The Basics of Scales

Author: gloopyjon

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
