Practical Trick to Practice a Scale

Video Transcript

One minute scale practice with Ari! Practice a scale!

Take any scale you want to learn – let’s say Eb mixolydian. What you do is you take a triad inside that scale [🎵🎵🎵 Ari plays the triad 🎵🎵🎵] just the triad: root-three-five and then eight.

And then you play a little embellishment from every single one of those triad notes: up one, whole step down (because it’s mixolydian, right) Then from the root, from the 3rd: 3-4-3-2-3; from the 5th:: 6-5-4-5. and from the octave 8-b7-8.

If you do that, you hit every single scale degree. [🎵🎵🎵 Ari plays it all 🎵🎵🎵] and is eminently practical because the chord’s gonna say Eb7 for example, and all you need to know is the triad notes – one up, one down from there.
