Modes lesson 2 – The Ionion scale

So today we’re looking at the Ionion scale, otherwise known as what? That’s right…..the Major scale.

If youdon’t know it you need to learn it right now.

The Major scale is one of the most commonly used scales in western music.  It’s very pleasing on the ears and is great for pop, rock and Jazz music.Let’s recap the notes in C major.

C, D, E, F, G, A, B

As said before its a must know scale and many songs use the scale for their melodies like the following

‘sweet child o mine”iI want candy’

‘wonderful tonight’ ‘happy Birthday’

It’s a great mode/scale to use for soloing over modern pop songs and for creating melodies lines over basic pop chords.
