What it does: Plays Major Scales Up and Down. Plays minor scales up and down. It keeps moving into the next octave, so if you go up or down far enough, you will reach the limits of your system's sound - or your ears. Great for schools, and people who want to learn the difference between major and minor.
Latest Practice Tip:
Use media Player to create a practice set of songs. Play through them all EVERY DAY. Then create 4 sets (45 mins or so each) and you've got enough songs to play a full length gig. You will be glad you did if you manage this one.

Learn to construct and spell chords - Download
Format: .Zip file. Updated on 27-3-05.
How to use: Unzip the .zip file into the folder "C:/Program Files". It puts the files into a folder named "chords". Run the file CHORDS.EXE.
It would be a good idea to create a shortcut to this file on your desktop, because it will only be of use if you remember to use it. :)
It will help students (including adult students of course) to learn to spell basic chords. It covers the scale degrees needed for major, minor, diminished and augmented at the first level, but has 6 levels. It runs in DOS, so don't be fooled by it's chunky, 80's style words.
System requirements: IBM compatible PC. (It will run on almost anything.)
