Scale Degrees, Explained | Musical Fundamentals

music theory musical fundamentals Jan 12, 2023

Talking about scales can get a little tricky if you’re not on the up and up. In this installment of Musical Fundamentals, we’re talking scale degrees, what they are, and how we can use them to talk about and understand any scale we come across.

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • What scale degrees are and how they relate to the big daddy of all scales.
  • How to alter scale degrees just like we do pitches.
  • Common alterations you’ll see for scale degrees.

This is so important to master, because it allows you to have verbiage about the different feelings and tones of each scale, for both yourself and others.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions, down in the video.

Thanks for being here and DFTBA :)
