Harmonizing The G D A and E Major Scale in 6ths

Harmonizing The G D A and E Major Scale in 6ths


In music harmony is the use of pitches or tones played simultaneously. Any two or more notes played together will be harmony. The result is either dissonant sounds or consonant sounds. In this video I will concentrate on harmonizing the major scale in three different keys and also three different positions on the guitar. The result of playing a major scale in 6ths or the harmony note played a 6th lower than the intended starting note will be a consonant sound (or pleasant to the ear). This technique has been used in every style of music and in every period of music, and used very often vocally.


Example:

G  A  B  C  D  E  F#    =  G major scale highlighted in red is the melody note.
G  A  B  C  D  E  F#    =  G major scale highlighted in red is the harmony note.

Played or sung together is a harmony of a 6th.
D  E  F#  G  A  B  C#   =  D major scale highlighted in red is the melody note
D  E  F#  G  A  B  C#   =  D major scale highlighted in red is the harmony note

Played or sung together is a harmony of a 6th.
A  B  C#  D  E  F#  G#  =  A major scale highlighted in red is the melody note
A  B  C#  D  E  F#  G#  =  A major scale highlighted in red is the harmony note

Played or sung together is a harmony of a 6th.
E  F#  G#  A  B  C#  D# =  E major scale highlighted in red is the melody note
E  F#  G#  A  B  C#  D# =  E major scale highlighted in red is the harmony note

Played or sung together is a harmony of a 6th.


As usual keep on strumming.
