Are these cords Universal in other words across all music whether it’s a keyboard player guitar player saxophone player if you mention B minor chord they would know it’s 1 flat 3 flat 5 flat 7?
Only when speaking about the 7th scale degree or 7th mode in the key of C major.
I’m going to answer in depth inside the livestream today. Want to help you understand better. If you can’t join the livestream you can always watch later
On the Bmin7flat5 – 1 flat 3 flat 5 flat 7. I don’t understand when you play the 3rd, its a D but not flat?? sorry if I didn’t explain it better. Thanks
Thanks for making it more clearer. Thanks for a video response.
video problem, i tried the link that you provide, i can hear your voice but no video.
Hey Jimmy not sure what’s wlgokng on with that. Playing fine for me. Is it this video that you can’t see?
New excited member enjoy the benefits of my membership.
Learning so far that music involves lots of patterns.
Thank for clearing the explanation of that 7th degree of the scale. I never understood the quality til you demo’d the interval pattern difference between the major and the minor fingering- Part 3.
Do I need to send you some working darker-colored markers?
Awesome to have you Rosa! And you’re exactly right, you’ll find that out even more during your learning journey that there are patterns everywhere.
Hi, verry begginer here on theory, so I get quickly confused!… If im right, thats the 3rd which determine if the scale is major or minor. Because of the distance or intervale. Pretty sure this is ok. But then here on D minor you talk about a 3rd and 7th flat. 3rd on D scale is F. Right? So when you say “flat” do we have to understant “semi tone” ? Make sens if so, but just need to be sure.
In your first video you give number to notes. So 3rd flat on D scale refer to E (or F flat, same thing here). Just get confuse a bit by your language… but I get it now.
So when referring to any number it always starts major unless there’s a flat/sharp in front of it. Example
1 3 5 7 vs 1 b3 5 b7
You are absolutely correct 👌🏾
