Saturday Songwriting: Buckets of Stars

The basis of pretty much all music is the major scale, (or the Do Re Mi scale as I tend to call it).

How well do you know it?
Sorry, I don’t mean to put you on the spot. I think one of the best things we can do as songwriters and musicians is to get to know the major scale really well. 

Knowing the scale well means is considering it from lots of different directions. For instance, what if it weren’t a line of notes so much as a solar system of notes orbiting the central note “Do.” You might find out a lot about the scale looking at it from that direction and obviously, that’s what this weeks sheet takes a look at.
