  1. A key is the way the notes are ordered we call that a scale. A keys scale degrees have names, The first note of the Ionian/major scale is the Tonic, the second is called the super tonic, the third is called the mediant, the fourth is called the subdominant, the fifth is called the dominant, the sixth is called the sub mediant, and the seventh is called the leading tone. Using the C major key as the example of how these relate to each other The C is the tonic and every note after it has a relation to it the E is the third note and called mediant because it is half way between the tonic and the G fifth note the dominant which is also known as a perfect fifth these three notes make up a chord the tonic/root, the mediant/third and the perfect fifth. Now you want to make a chord from the second note of the key of C major and it is the D use the Dorian mode of the key of C to do this The D is the root the F is its third and the A is its fifth. Will this make the D the tonic of the key no it wont and the F will not be the mediant of the key it is still the sub dominant but it is a third above the root the A is a perfect fifth away from D but is still considered the submediant of the key. Now lets look at the seventh note of the Key, the B/leading tone it is called this because of its makeup as a chord as it will want a tonic to resolve it. So with the B the third note is D and its fifth is a F and when used as a chord it is called a diminished and this is because the way the notes are, it is made with two sets of minor thirds, This is the start of chord theory and each chord has a relation to the tonic and its modes.

  2. If I asked AI can the existence of God be proved or disproved, what answer might I expect to receive.

  3. In this model that I'm proposing, the AI is the one that would be making the questions, generally speaking. Let me give you a short example.

  4. It looks to me that some one or some other thigh started the question and not the AI. Other wise the start of the premises would be : AI; Why do women in Spain have more advantages than the men in Spain? Could you give me examples of this?

  5. You will only find sharps and flats when working with key signatures other then C. Now you can have chords made with other notes out side of its key signature, but for a beginner you should not concern your self with them yet. And the one note used in chords that fall out side of its key is the 7 chord. like C7, F7 and such dont worry about them until you progress that far.

  6. I can make a bad guitar sound good , a good guitar sound great and a great guitar sound like heaven. This because of the time I have put into learning how to play the guitar and not the guitar itself. Of course if I want to sound my best I will need quality gear, It wont need to be the best highest quality but it will need to function how I expect it to.

  7. There are different ways to explain what a interval is. The most proper way is by using how far from the previous interval it is, A half step interval is a minor interval and a whole step interval is a major interval. Hence why it is a major third or minor third. There are other ways to describe them such as augmented or diminished or sharp and flat. Even their scale degree names ; Tonic, super tonic, blue note, mediant, subdominant, dominant. sub mediant, subtonic, leading tone. Sub tonic being the minor seventh and is referred to as subtonic. Blue note used with the aeolian mode which is a augmented iv.

  8. Did the nut that was on it work perfectly fine before it broke? And if it did then the new nut is not of he correct radius for the neck which will give you a high action on the A D G B strings unless you cut the not slots deeper. The nut on the left looks to be from a 12" radius and the one on the right for a 9 1/2" radius.

  9. Arroyo Grande is the better choice. And the reasoning is Los Osos is currently having problems in several areas Their garbage collection rates just went up by 90% The past rains have shown it to be flood prone. They have a wind event at the airport their that might have been a tornado. And in the past they have had other economic issues like water and sewage problems that led to extreme hikes in that pricing area.

  10. If you are just speaking to others to express what they should play then you will say D mixolydian but if you are to write it out on a staff then it is in G. There is no real difference only the way you arrange the notes/chords. The diminished chord will still be the F# in either case, and the dominant chord will still be the D in either case.

  11. It will depend on what chord or notes you are moving from and what chord or note you are going to move to next, that makes for the easiest and fastest way to go to or from.

  12. the first position for the key of G on the guitar starts on the low E at third fret the second position will start either on the open G or the fifth fret on the D string. The showing of the F# along with the G is just to show where the other lower octave ends, you could have also included the open E along with the F# as part of the G major scale.

  13. It means you go on stage play a set list then leave the stage for any amount of time then come back on latter and play another set that's different then the first set the last song of each set could be the same if its your best song. Some times a different band will play during your break between sets.

  14. It was done quite a bit back when I was young the band would take a break and then come back on stage after 10 or 20 minutes. At dances, festivals even in bars and night clubs.

  15. Dont play them as a bar chord only play them as a dyad root and fifth. You are using more pressure when you do a bar chord then just the individual strings. Do hand strengthening exercises.

  16. Music theory can be analogous to Art as well.

  17. The submediant is the starting point of the minor Aeolian mode/key and the sixth of that mode is the subdominant

  18. No, if you're in minor/Aeolian, that note is no longer the submediant--it's the tonic. Names like tonic, subdominant, and submediant are about scale degree relative to the tonic, not about diatonic position. A in A minor is the tonic. C in A minor is the mediant. D in A minor is the subdominant. F in A minor is the submediant.

  19. Then how do you keep the B from leading to the C when played.

  20. when the 7th is flat it is called a subtonic. I dont know why I just know that is its designation.

  21. It's because it's a step below the tonic ('sub' = under), much like scale degree 2 is the supertonic ('super' = above).

  22. Is there a name designation for when the super tonic is lowered to the minor interval?

  23. With pickups you have your base sound like overwound/hot pickups have a distorted over driven sound to them and you can pull that out of the signal with any pedal. And depending on the magnet type you have a sound that effects frequency and crisp or duller sound and with pedals you can change the way the magnet sounds, Like a EQ can adjust the frequency and a compressor or treble booster can help to brighten up a duller sounding magnet. But when using pedals in helping to change a pickups characteristics you can loose some of the things that make the pickup work well in other areas.

  24. You need a proper set upon your guitar. You should find some one to show you how it is done pay them to show you. They should also sow you about doing it with different types of guitars like a strat, a full hollow body and an acoustic. It will serve you well in the future and once you have it down well you can do it for others and make money at it.

  25. what you are doing is playing a scale in different positions. If you were to play the C major scale off the open A third fret C that will be the start of the C major scale in first position E C D E F G A B. Now if you start the C major scale off the G string at the Fifth fret You will be playing the same scale an octave higher in the second position on the guitar.

  26. That is the decay of the signal. You will see it on most string instruments. You notice how it really tappers off on the fourth signal because you did not hit another note before the sound dropped all the way out.

  27. Go to a lighter gage E and A string. adjust the bridge a little higher on the E. Raise the nut slot a little. Raising the nut slot will fix the problem definitely and have the least impact on intonation.

  28. The use of the time signature is not the same as the use of fractions the main difference is no matter what it is the measure always equals one whole note. So a 3/4 at a constant tempo will be the same as 4/4 at the same constant tempo the measure will last the same amount of time. A 3/2 will last just as long as a 8/8. So if I had a tempo that was set at 480 and was playing in 32nd notes it will be at the same length of time as if I played 1/4 notes at 60 bpm.

  29. You need to understand how the inputs work number 1 input is for low impedance pickups and number 2 is high impedance pickup. so if you are plugging in a humbucker into number 1 input you will get more noise because they are high impedance pickups. Now if you are using single coil pickups which are low impedance then you will get that hum because single coil produce a 60 cycle hum

  30. loosen the strings take the back cover off put a block or use some cards and place that between the tremolo block and the body tune the strings. adjust the spring claw so the cards or block moves enough to slip out from between the tremolo block and the body. If you leave what you used between the tremolo block and body to keep the bridge in the place you have it is known as blocking the tremolo, but then you wont be able to use the tremolo.

  31. The way an octave works is the answer it moves from the low note C to the high note B when you move up to the next C you are starting another octave. I believe what you are doing when going backwards from the C to the D is part of negative harmony. We count the intervals of chords going from the root up.

  32. Start with knowing intervals, what makes it a major interval or a minor interval. Then know what makes a scale by using the intervals. Intervals + scale = key. Next will be chords and how they are made by using the intervals and the scale. Key + intervals = chords. Chords are made by the stacking of notes with thirds or every three notes make part of the chord. Like with a C major chord you have the notes C E G the first set of stacked thirds is from C to E and it equals two full or major intervals and the second set of stacked notes start on the last note used in the first half of the chord so for C it is the E, C D E and from it you count three more notes E F G and it is one half interval or a minor interval and one whole interval for the total of one and a half intervals making it a minor stack of notes. The first half of the stack is a major third so the chord is considered a major chord. Now for a minor chord like the D the stack of notes are D E F which is one and a half intervals so it is a minor third and the second half of the chord its fifth is F G A two whole intervals and a major stack major fifth. because the first stack is a minor third the chord is considered a minor chord. And this is just the beginning of chord theory. It is what they mean when saying a D minor or a G major chord.
