In this video lesson, Instructor Pete Pidgeon discusses the Minor 2nd Interval. On guitar, lowering the second note of the major scale by a half step will produce the minor second interval.
Video Transcript: PETE PIDGEON: "Here we're going to discuss a minor second interval. Back to the major scale here. We were in the key of G and we were playing a major scale. You would go up from the first note, whole step, whole step, half step, instead of playing it on the eighth fret here we're going to play it back on the third fret. Whole step, whole step. I'm sorry, first note whole step, whole step, half step, whole step, whole step, whole step, half step. Now, the idea of a minor second is that if we start on the first note of the major scale and you go up to the second note of the major scale and you lower that second note by a half step you get to a minor second. Now that would refer to the first note of a major scale going to that note of a minor second."
In this course, Guitar Instructor Pete Pidgeon gives 16 video lessons on Guitar Music Theory. We will explain the intricacies involved with guitar intervals within music theory. Pidgeon will begin by explaining what music intervals are and their relation to the neck of the guitar. He'll then begin explaining how to find and create various intervals using the neck of the guitar. Pidgeon will explain the minor second and major second intervals, the difference between perfect and diminished notes, as well as what octaves are and how to locate them. These intervals are great for understanding notation and building upon the foundation of guitar music theory. Watch these videos and begin learning music theory for guitar today.
